dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
We cannot even begin to imagine the roller coaster of emotions you must be feeling right now. Adoption is such a selfless act and true expression of the love you have for your baby. We admire you for considering adoption.
Should you choose to bless us with the opportunity to raise your baby, we promise he or she will know great love. We will tell your baby how loved they are by us and especially you. There will be no shortage of hugs and kisses. Your baby will enjoy the fun and sense of belonging that comes with family vacations and family get-togethers as well as the simple joy of playing with their animals. We are looking forward to creating new traditions as a family of three.
As we built our house, we made plans for a special baby. As Tracy’s dad and Ryan installed the bathroom sink upstairs, they installed it a little lower than normal so it would “be a perfect height for the kids.” Every time we do something fun or exciting, we talk about how much more fun it will be to share the moment with a child.
We know this is a difficult time in your life, and we pray you have the love and support you need to make the best decision possible for you and your baby. Just contemplating the possibility of adoption is courageous. Thank you so much for considering us to raise your precious baby.
Hi there! We are Ryan and Tracy. We are an adventurous couple who enjoys exploring our beautiful country, whether it is in the mountains or on the beach. We have known each other since grade school but have only been married for seven years. Ryan is smart, funny, hardworking, and incredibly loving. Anyone who has seen him with his nieces and nephews knows he is also a big kid at heart as he runs around playing with them. Tracy is compassionate, patient, and, according to Ryan, sassy.
Our Home & Pets
We live on the outskirts of a small rural town on 13 wooded acres, complete with a creek. We built our home ourselves in 2016. It has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a bonus area upstairs we plan to use as a playroom. We chose this area because it reminds us of where we grew up; we have so many great memories of our childhoods, and we want to make those memories with your baby. We also love this property because it has plenty of space to run, play, and explore. We have two dogs: Maizy, a rescue, and Guinness, a golden retriever. We also have three cats: Smokey, Martin, and Frank. Our favorite evening activity is to cuddle up with our animals with the wood stove lit.
Our Extended Family
Our families live in the same town where we grew up, only an hour and a half away, and we see them often. Both sides of our family are super excited about the addition of a new family member. Tracy has one brother, who is married with three children. Ryan has four siblings: three sisters and one brother. His oldest sister is married with three children. Our nieces and nephews are looking forward to having a little cousin to spoil!
Our families are the ultimate “do-it-yourselfers,” so we frequently spend our time together helping each other out. When we aren’t working, we enjoy taking trips together as a large family and playing games like Risk, Euchre, and Spoons. For the various holidays, we host pitch-ins, where we all have our usual dishes to bring. Tracy always makes the pies and looks forward to teaching your baby how to make and bake pies. When celebrating the holidays with Ryan’s family, we go to his grandparents’ house and to Tracy’s parents’ for her side of the family. Impromptu gatherings are filled with good food and fun.
What Led Us To Adoption
Starting a family has been important to us from the very beginning. However, after five years of trying to conceive both naturally and through medical intervention, we began to realize starting a family conventionally was not going to be possible. Adoption has been something Tracy has thought about numerous times over the years; she has a cousin who adopted three children when she could not conceive, and they have been an absolute joy for the family. After time to heal and process the fact we would not be able to conceive a biological child, we enthusiastically decided adoption was 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
