dear expectant mother
We haven’t met yet, but my thoughts are with you and your little one every day. Let me begin by expressing my admiration for the strength it takes for you to make an adoption plan for your baby. It is a courageous and selfless decision, and I would be honored to be considered as a parent for your child.
I can’t imagine how difficult it must be to entrust someone else with your baby’s care. What I can imagine is that your decision will be made from a place of love, compassion, kindness, understanding, and hope that I am the kind of mother you want your baby to have. I cannot promise your baby will be free of hurt or pain, but what I can promise is that, through all obstacles, I will be there through the journey. I can promise that I will love your baby unconditionally and this will only be matched by grandparents, aunts, uncles, many cousins, and an incredible group of friends who are my foundation. I can promise that your child will have every opportunity within my reach, and, most importantly, your baby will know that all success started with your loving and courageous decision.
I’m humbled by the selfless and courageous decision you are making, to give others like me an opportunity to also become parents. Thank you for making the decision that you will make.
My name is Ruth. I’m from Minnesota, and I believe everything happens for a reason. I strive to lead a healthy lifestyle, filled with good, nutritious food, activity, healthy decisions, and plenty of sleep. I value giving back to my community and feel a sense of belonging when I’m around others doing the same. I frequently volunteer at the free clinic and events that further social justice causes. I am dedicated and focused on safety, equality, fairness, and I have an eye toward improvements. Unless my friends have been lying to me, I am also fun! When given the option of indoor or outdoor activities, I will always choose outdoor, because the fresh air and beauty of nature excites me. I enjoy traveling to new places and experiencing new people, language, food, and culture.
My Home & Pets
I and my dog, Penny, have a safe, loving home and cannot wait for that home to include a child. I brought Penny to her “forever home” after meeting her at an animal shelter, where I picked her up to foster her back to health. We focus on fun: taking walks every day and meeting all of the fun families in the neighborhood. Penny is so excited for a “sibling” to play with and protect, and I cannot wait to show your child the world I have come to call my home.
My Extended Family
I am the oldest of five children, and, as such, I am responsible and dedicated. You can say I fit the oldest child description to a “T.” I’m often the planner of family outings, vacations and overall adventures! My immediate family consists of my mom, brother, sister-in-law and nieces, nephew, and a a robust circle of friends. I feel extremely fortunate to have such diverse group of people who support me and provide love and sense of belonging.
Our gatherings are always surrounded by delicious food, like my mom’s specialty, Salvadoran tamales. We have learned to make our celebrations our own, reflecting the growing families and interests. This past Christmas, for example, some of our family members had to work on the main holiday. So, instead, we had two celebrations, before and after the holiday!
I’m grateful that as we grow in size, we have been able to be flexible and adapt to the needs of the family. My nieces and nephews have brought a new joy to celebrations, and seeing them happy and taking part in traditions we grew up with warms my heart. I know your baby will also be a part of that growing circle of love and traditions.
What Led Me To Adoption
Adoption has been on mind for a long time; after failed IVF treatments, I know I’m meant to build my family through this particular journey. Ever since I graduated from college, I believed my next step would be motherhood and a family. It has taken some time for this to happen, but here I am. I long for the opportunity to create memories and new traditions while at the same time honoring the parents who entrust me with such an important journey. I can’t change the fact my body cannot conceive, but I can change how I react to it. I have always believed that we all do better when we choose, and I choose adoption as a way to build my family!

Choose a Family for
Your Baby With Confidence
As you browse our list of hopeful adoptive parents, you can feel confident in knowing that all of the adoptive families working with Angel Adoption are prepared to offer your baby a safe, stable, and loving environment along with a wealth of opportunities for a happy and fulfilling life.
Each adoptive parent has been thoroughly evaluated through a home study course conducted by a licensed agency. A completed home study means the family is emotionally, physically, and financially ready to adopt a baby.
The home study process includes assessments of each parent’s character, marital stability, financial situation, lifestyle, and medical history. The agency also runs background checks to verify there is no record of criminal activity or child abuse. In addition, a social worker will inspect the family’s home to ensure it is a safe environment for a child.
Furthermore, Angel Adoption requires each family to be educated on adopting and parenting. After a baby has been placed with the adoptive family, a social worker will continue to monitor and supervise the family. We go to great lengths to make sure all the families you have to choose from are going to be excellent parents for your baby!Return to Waiting Families
