dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
First and foremost, thank you! Words cannot express the strength and courage you possess in considering a decision this difficult. The fact that you are reading this gives us hope and shows us you have a tremendous amount of love for your baby. Although we haven’t met you yet, we feel like we know and admire the person you are.
We are humbled and grateful that you chose to get to know us a little bit more, and we will respect any decision you make. If you choose us, we can assure you that your baby will be raised in a loving, caring, and supportive family.
We met in New York City through friends in 2008 and started dating in 2013. Peter proposed four months into our relationship, and we were married in 2015. In 2016 we brought home our little furbaby, Marlow, who is a mini Labradoodle and a redhead like her mama, Sacha. After leaving NYC in 2020, we moved to Georgia, where Sacha continues to be a flight attendant (23 years and counting) and Peter had a complete career change that took him from 28 years in the advertising world to starting his own catering business. We were both born on the same day, so we try to make it a fun day for the both of us! When we aren’t cooking for each other or for our business, we love spending time at the beach, taking walks through our beautiful park with Marlow, or curling up with a good book.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a historic home that was built in 1882. We love gardening in our courtyard, and we enjoy taking walks under the old oak trees and along the cobblestone streets to the weekend farmers market. Our entire block consists of wonderful neighbors, and we’ve met lovely people in our little community. We have shops, museums, theaters, and great restaurants all within walking distance. Our mini Labradoodle, Marlow, brings us joy daily. She is the sweetest, most loving companion anyone could ever ask for. She is a trained therapy dog and loves meeting new people and dogs. She loves her toys, is obsessed with carrots, and can’t wait for long walks through the park, where she meets her squirrel friends.
Our Extended Family
Our extended families are not that large but are very unique. Sacha has one sister, who also lives in Georgia, and a brother, who lives in France. Her mother lives in Switzerland but visits Georgia a lot. When she visits us, she stays just across the courtyard in our carriage house. Peter’s parents, who have been married for over 60 years, live in New Jersey. He has an older brother who lives in New York and is married with two daughters. Each year we travel to Florida for a week of family fun.
Christmas and Hanukkah are both big holidays for us. We love to light the menorah together each night. For Christmas, we love to decorate our tree with sentimental family ornaments and the Star of David on top. Since Sacha lost her father so close to Christmas, her family has lots of holiday traditions to honor him, the most important being a fondue night, where we reminisce about good times and enjoy a great meal that Peter loves to prepare.
We both have lifelong friendships we cherish tremendously.
What Led Us To Adoption
We wanted to build our family shortly after getting married but weren’t successful naturally. We tried many different fertility treatments, but nothing seemed to stick. Not only did this cause physical pain but emotional as well because we always hoped and dreamed that one day we would become parents. After moving to Georgia, we began meeting people who had adopted their children or were adopted themselves, and the idea of adoption was then a constant topic in our house. It’s like the universe was sending us a message. We now realize our journey isn’t over but only just beginning with the opportunity adoption gives us. We are so excited to begin this new part of our lives.

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!
