dear expectant mother
We would like to make some promises to you and your precious child.
We promise to help you, to the best of our ability, through this process. We promise to keep you updated. We promise to be honest and forthright. We promise to be the best parents we can. No one knows everything there is to know about parenting, so we promise to research or seek counsel when we encounter an obstacle. We promise to pray for you. We promise to let your child know how brave and selfless you are, and how much we respect you and are grateful for you.
To your baby:
We promise to love you. We promise to give you every opportunity we can. We promise to read to you every night and play with you every day. We promise to be the best mommy and daddy we can be. We promise that you will not always like our decisions, but we promise that we are making them with your best interest in mind. We promise to always be here for you when you need to talk, have a skinned knee, or a broken heart. We promise to pray with you and for you. We promise to tell you about your birthmom and how amazing she is for giving you to us.
Our names are Ryan and Jenna. We are high school sweethearts. We started dating in 2004 when we were juniors and got married in 2010. Ryan is a system’s engineer and Jenna gets to set her own schedule as a piano instructor and housekeeper. Our mutual hobbies include traveling, costuming (we visit children’s hospitals and fundraise for them while dressed as superheroes, princesses, etc.), and playing music. We also love going to the movies!
Our Home & Pets
We have a 2-story brick home with a basement we plan on finishing. We specifically bought this house with kids in mind because it has so much space! We have a music room (where Jenna teaches piano lessons), an office (where Ryan can work from home if needed), and a craft room. The nursery is no more than five steps away from the master bedroom. Our back and front yard are both spacious with plenty of room to play. Our neighborhood is well-known for being safe and friendly. It is very close to an urgent care center, hospital, fire station, school, and grocery store. We have mature trees and a park within walking distance. There are always people out walking and playing!
Our Extended Family
Jenna about her family: I am very close with my parents. They were parents when they had to be parents, but now they are my best friends. I ask their advice on just about everything, and they are always willing to help me in any way they can. They are amazing people, but they are even better grandparents! I already know this because I have seen them with my siblings’ children. I have 2 older brothers, 1 older sister, 3 nephews, and 1 niece. One of my brothers and my sister live out of state, but we try to see each other as often as we can. When we’re all together, our favorite thing to do is play cards, especially rummy.
Ryan about his family: My parents have always been there for me in any and every way they could. They have sacrificed so much for my sister and me throughout our lives. They taught me the importance of having a strong family foundation. My family enjoys watching movies and playing board games together. Both my parents and my sister live close by, which is very convenient for family gatherings, even at the last minute! My parents are very excited to become first-time grandparents.
What Led Us To Adoption
Adoption has been close to our hearts for a long time. When we were in college, we babysat for a family with two adopted children. We grew very close to this family and admired their dynamic. When we first started thinking of adopting, we asked them for help. They gladly answered all our questions and helped ease our mind about our concerns. The more we thought about growing our family, the more we couldn’t imagine it any other way. We follow our hearts, minds, and faith while making a decision instead of relying on tradition or what other people think we should/would like us to do. Traditionally, most people want to have their own child, which is great! When we felt adoption being laid on our hearts, we knew that tradition simply wasn’t for us.

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
