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.
We have talked about adopting a child for a long time, 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 are Mollie and Sara. Our journey as a couple began in 2009, and four years later, we celebrated our love with friends and family. We have a strong marriage built on respect, communication, and trust. We are loyal, fun-loving, and dedicated women who challenge and support one another. Mollie is caring, adventurous, and loves to garden and cook. Sara is compassionate, thoughtful, and easygoing. She enjoys reading, listening to records, and learning to play the guitar. We are both hardworking and passionate about our work; Mollie serves in the U.S. Army, and Sara works in international affairs. We love to travel and value other cultures and new experiences. We love hiking, camping, and spending time with our Labradors, Bailey (11 years) and Mazie (6 months). Family and friends are extremely important to us. A perfect weekend for us would involve a hike, Mollie cooking, playing games, and gathering around a bonfire with family and friends in the evening.
Our Home & Pets
We are a military family, which has afforded us the unique opportunity to live in amazing places and make lasting friendships. Our home sits on a quiet street in a diverse and charming neighborhood close to parks, farmers markets, museums, and walking trails. Our house has a large, fenced-in backyard, great for hanging out, bonfires, and family time. We are currently expanding our house to include a large living room with a wood-burning fireplace, perfect for family gatherings. We love taking walks and spending time with our dogs, Bailey and Mazie; both are incredibly sweet and playful and love treats, hiking, and swimming. They are always excited to meet new people and can’t wait to add a human brother or sister to the pack. In our spare time, we love to travel, explore state and national parks with friends and family, and enjoy local festivals, coffee shops, and restaurants.
Our Extended Family
We come from large families with six siblings, 26 cousins, twelve nieces and nephews, and many dear family friends. Sara grew up in Michigan with her parents and two older siblings. She is very close to her family and loves being an aunt to her sister’s two children. She always visits them or has them come to spend time with us.
Mollie grew up in Iowa with her parents and three siblings. She loves spending time with her family, especially her nieces and nephews. We love having our families visit us and going home for gatherings and holidays. Our families are big on get-togethers to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, and accomplishments and just enjoy spending time together.
We are excited to share yearly summer camping trips where our child explores parks, spends time at the lake, and makes woodfired pizzas. Sara is especially excited to share her love of Michigan football (GO BLUE) and vacationing along Lake Michigan, something she did every summer as a kid with her family. We are extremely blessed to have such supportive, caring, and loving families who share our excitement of adding to our family.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have always discussed adoption as a way to grow our family. For several years, we tried to have a biological child but were unable to do so. We have many friends who have adopted children and believe it is a beautiful way to become parents. We are incredibly excited and cannot think of a more perfect way to expand our family than to welcome a child into our lives through adoption.

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
