dear expectant mother
There are no words that sufficiently describe the precious gift you would be bestowing upon us, and here’s what’s in our hearts….
Sally has always envisioned herself as a mom of at least two children. Unfortunately, real life does not always line up with our dreams. On our third date we discussed and made a list of all the things we wanted out of our relationship: marriage, children, a house, and adventure. We made all but one of those dreams come true: a child together.
We are a fun family that enjoys cooking together, going on hikes, playing board games, decorating our Christmas tree together, planning parties, vacationing, and playing with our dog. We also can have heart to hearts about whatever is on our minds. We can be open and honest with each other, which is priceless. We are really there for each other to love, support, and encourage each other’s hopes and dreams. We have so much love to give and are eager to give it.
There are no words. How do you ask or say thank you for such a precious gift? The only way to do that is to provide all the love that is in our hearts, all the care and nurturing good parents can give and a precious baby deserves, and to provide you with any assurances you need to feel good about choosing us.
Thank you for reading this letter and viewing our profile.
We are a positive, fun-loving couple with lots of good energy permeating our household. Chris loves to sing, dance, and play guitar and any other instrument he can get his hands on. He may not be perfect, but he has fun with it. Sally is the feeler of the family. She brings love, understanding, and a generous spirit to all she comes across. Our son John is 23 years old and back with us now after college. He has always wanted a sibling, and even though he is older now, he still looks forward to it with joyful anticipation. We are the owners of a construction company, which allows us to be able to give family the time and importance it deserves. Sally’s work allows her to be home 80–90% of the time, while Chris is away from home for only 20–30 hours a week.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a beautiful three-bedroom, three-bathroom home in Southern California in a very nice family community. We have a large yard, garden, and patio. We have a cute Maltipoo named Bonnie who is so adorable and fun! Our house is located at the end of a street that backs up to beautiful rolling hills and hiking trails where kids can play and people walk with their dogs and children. We get out there as a family at least once a week. Our neighborhood also has great schools and parks and a village-like feeling. We also have a historic theater, a bowling alley, and shops you can walk to, which we all often take advantage of.
Our Extended Family
We get together with Chris’s brother, his two sisters, and their spouses and children every year for Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, family picnics, etc., and we enjoy having a house bustling with at least 20 people laughing, talking, and having fun.
We do a lot together, and we have a boat we enjoy taking mini vacations on to Catalina or just sitting in the harbor. John and Chris enjoy fishing and swimming in the ocean together. We enjoy camping trips together as well. Our most recent was to the Sequoias. John will make a wonderful big brother some day. On that trip, he insisted on setting up the campsite, cooked for us, and kept the campfire burning for s’mores and ghost stories.
What Led Us To Adoption
We met when Sally’s son, John, was six years old. Six months later we were married, and we raised “our son” together. We always wanted more children, and we went through many painful and expensive fertility treatments to no avail. While medical intervention and our bodies did not cooperate, the desire to have another child never went away and is stronger than ever. We have so much love to give, and at this stage of our lives, we are also in a position to give this child the best of everything. The desire and need to give our love to help nurture a child would be the greatest honor 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!Return to Waiting Families
