dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
Thank you for your love, your courage, and the beautiful gift of life you are giving. We would be forever grateful if you chose to bless us with this ultimate gift of a child to love and raise. You will always and forever be their mom. We could never take your place. You gave them the greatest gift: life. If you choose us, we promise with all our hearts to love and care for your child always. We promise to love, cheer for, teach, help, comfort, and encourage them every day. We are so grateful for you. Your love and sacrifice would stay in our hearts forever.
We love being parents to our son and can’t wait for another child to pour our love onto. Our son can’t wait to be a big brother and to teach, protect, and have a lifelong best friend. If you want, we would love to keep in touch with you at any level you’re comfortable with.
Sara & Jakob

Currently Jakob is the men’s group leader at our local church and works hard helping other families and individuals in need to become more self-reliant and build a stronger relationship with God.
Our Home & Pets
We live in Oklahoma. Our town is growing, with a pretty amazing school system. Throughout the year the town has different festivals, parades, and an ever-growing Christmas lights display. Our home is in a cul-de-sac and surrounded by wonderful neighbors as well as very close to a cow pasture. Our home is modest but suits our needs and wants. We have a dog, a black Lab named Casey. We adopted her from the shelter at one year old; she is now four years old. She loves going on walks, belly rubs, and treats. She also loves guarding the backyard from squirrels and the occasional wild rabbit. She is not a fan of thunderstorms.
Our Extended Family
Jakob’s Family - I have three sisters, three brothers-in-law, and eight nieces and nephews. We all live near our mom and dad. All our families gather together often for Sunday dinners, holidays, birthdays, niece and nephew school events, and any other reason we can find. When we get together, we generally play games and are very competitive. Every three years we have a family reunion with all of our extended family. We enjoy having this time to catch up with one another.
Sara’s Family - I have one sister, two nieces, and one great-nephew who live near us, and we see each other often. Our son has a special bond with my younger niece, and they can play for days. My dad lives in Illinois, and my mom and stepdad live in Oregon, where we visit them once a year. While there, we enjoy relaxing, playing games, walking around their small town, visiting the ocean and beach, and walking the hiking trails around their town in the woods. Once a year my mom comes to visit us as well. We also try to visit my grandma, dad, aunt, uncles, and cousins in Illinois at least once a year.
What Led Us To Adoption
Family has always been important to us. We always thought we would have three or four children; however, we have experienced fertility issues throughout our marriage. We were finally blessed with our son. Since our son turned one, we have been trying to grow our family but have not been able to. We feel strongly that our family is still meant to grow. We have thought about adoption over the years and feel now is the right time. Our son has often expressed how he would love to have a sibling and be a big brother. We would love to have our family grow through adoption and have the opportunity to love and nurture another child in our family.

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
