dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
We are beyond humbled that you would consider us to be the parents of your baby. We cannot begin to imagine how you are feeling as you make this incredibly brave decision and loving choice. We admire your strength to choose adoption and are thankful for this possible gift of parenthood. We would be honored to be a part of your journey as we seek to grow our family.
Adopting a child is something we have always hoped for, and we could not be more excited to become parents. If you choose us to raise your child, we will do so with love and patience and will teach them to be confident, kind, and their authentic self. We cannot wait to create lasting memories, share family traditions, and introduce them to different cultures, new experiences, and outdoorsy adventures.
We have been blessed with wonderfully supportive family and friends, and if you choose us, your child will be welcomed into a loving family and community. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us and our story. We are hopeful and excited to complete our family.
We have been together for 12 years and married for nine. We are loyal, trustworthy, and genuine people who challenge and support each other and enjoy spending time together. We have a strong relationship built on love, respect, and communication. We love to travel and value other cultures and new experiences. We are both hardworking and are passionate about what we do. Lifelong education is important to us; both of us are avid readers and are pursuing additional master’s degrees. We are enthusiastic about all things outdoors and fitness. We love hiking, camping, and spending time with our Labrador, Bailey. Family and friends are extremely important to us. A perfect weekend for us would involve morning adventures, hiking, Mollie smoking meat/grilling, and playing games or gathering around a bonfire with family and friends.
Our Home & Pets
We are a military family, which has afforded us the unique opportunity to live in amazing places and make lasting friendships. Currently we live in Virginia, just a few miles from the beach. We love taking walks with our dog and letting her swim in the ocean during the summer. We are always exploring nearby state and national parks with our dog and enjoy adventures to local farmers markets, food truck fests, and coffee shops. Our house has a fenced-in backyard, which is great for having friends and family over for BBQs, bonfires, and games. Our dog, Bailey, is a ten-year-old silver Labrador who loves treats, hiking, swimming, and napping. She is always excited to meet new people and is an absolute joy.
Our Extended Family
We come from large families with six siblings, 26 cousins, eleven nieces and nephews, and many dear family friends. Sara grew up in Michigan with her parents and two older siblings. She is close to her family and loves being an aunt to her sister’s two children. She always takes time to visit them or have them come spend time with us.
Mollie grew up in Iowa with her parents and three siblings. She loves to spend time with her family, especially her many nieces and nephews. We both love having our families visit us or going home for gatherings. Mollie looks forward to having our child take part in the yearly family reunion full of games, food, conversation, and laughs. Both of our families are big on get-togethers to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, and accomplishments or just spend time together.
We love spending the holidays and vacations with our families. Sara is excited to share her love for Michigan football (GO BLUE) and vacationing along Lake Michigan, something she did every summer as a kid with her family. Both our families are extremely supportive of our journey to grow our family and are excited about us adding to the family.
What Led Us To Adoption
Throughout our journey to grow our family, we have always wanted to adopt as we see it as a beautiful way to become parents. After several years of navigating miscarriages, infertility clinics, and IUIs, we decided adoption would be the best way for us to expand our family. We are incredibly excited at the possibility of adoption as a means of sharing our lives with another person and bringing them into our loving 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!
