We longingly look forward to being parents, sharing our love with a child, and creating a life for them filled with fun and adventure. Please know that your child will be joining a family of so many people who desire the same thing and will love and care for your child if you choose us.

We would be honored and truly blessed to walk alongside you during this time. Our faith is the cornerstone of our lives, and we endeavor to love your child with the love God has for them.

Thank you again for considering us to love and care for your child as our very own. We cannot express enough what this opportunity means for us. The two of us cannot wait to open our hearts and our home to a child. We promise to work tirelessly to provide the best and most love-filled home for your child.

Dave and Sara

About Us

In 2008 we met in the front row of a first-year college class and quickly became friends. Eventually we started dating, and after a year and a half, we got engaged on New Year’s Eve and married just eight months later in 2010. Dave currently works as a college history professor. Trained as an elementary teacher but currently working in the chemical industry, Sara works from home and loves what she does. Sara is a morning person with lots of energy who likes to take on projects of all sorts, shop, and decorate. Dave is easygoing and loves to read and learn new things. We both like to be outside, try different types of food, travel, and spend time with our families. Most of all, we love to laugh and spend time together. We look forward with hopefulness and joy to sharing our lives with a child.

Our Home & Pets

Our house is a Dutch colonial-style house built in 1925 with three bedrooms, creaky floors, and lots of character. Sara has worked hard to decorate it with a farmhouse-style aesthetic and has planted beautiful landscaping. Our yard is a wonderful place to sit and is a great space for a little one to run and play. We share our house with two fun-loving and cuddly cats, Mookie (white and buff) and Rudy (brown/gray tabby). We live in an area with great schools, parks, and running/walking trails. We make it a point to keep track of the surprising amount of wildlife we see in our yard and on walks. We have also befriended several neighborhood cats!

Our Extended Family

After years of moving around the country and different places in Europe, we settled near our hometowns to be close to both sets of parents. Family is central to our lives, so we wanted them to be nearby as we began to consider starting a family. Dave is the youngest of three brothers, and Sara is the oldest of three sisters. Though our siblings live out of state, we make it a point to see them as often as we can.

The thing we love most about our families is how well we all get along. Over the 13 years we have been married, we have celebrated many holidays together and gone on a number of family vacations. Our families get along so well that our parents often hang out without us. Most years we even spend Easter and Thanksgiving together with our parents.

We are also blessed to be a part of a church with many families and young children. We look forward to bringing a child into this vibrant community!

What Led Us To Adoption

Our adoption journey is different from many people we know. When Sara was in her early twenties, she experienced a traumatic health event. Still, we hope to have a family and have determined that adoption is the best path for us. We understand adoption can bring its challenges but hope to be a blessing to a child and expectant mother. We have been fortunate to have family and friends support us through difficult circumstances throughout our lives. We are so excited for the opportunity to provide a warm and loving home for a child and cannot wait to meet them!

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!
