dear expectant mother
Sarah is a newcomer to the world of adoption, but Greg is not. Greg’s mom was 16 when she married her first husband and had his half-sister, who was adopted at the age of five by Greg’s father.
Greg’s aunt also had a child as a teenager, whom she placed for adoption at birth. We want you to know that of all the fears you’re facing right now, the fear of never seeing, knowing, or hearing from your child is not something you have to worry about with us.
If our dream comes true and you choose us to raise and protect your baby, you will always be welcome in our lives. We will respect whatever connection you feel comfortable with. Whether you visit, or exchange letters, or just watch life unfold on Facebook.
We also promise you this. If you choose us, your child’s life with us will be absolutely, unbelievably magical. They will be free to discover exactly who they are meant to be. We will help them figure out what fills them with love, passion, and gratitude. They will know what they want from life and will have the opportunities to pursue it all.
Most importantly, they will never forget where they came from. And all of us will feel eternally grateful to you, his or her biological mother, for making such a selfless, compassionate, and unimaginably loving choice.
We met 12 years ago in a cafe in New York City. Sarah was the manager & Greg snuck in for a daily dose of caffeine. One day, as Sarah handed Greg coffee, he gently leaned across the counter and said, “Sarah, are you in love?” She froze, then slowly said, “No, I’m not.” The next day we strolled through Central Park, falling in love with the glowing city, the autumn leaves, and each other.
Since then, we’ve adopted two dogs and a horse, written songs together, launched a successful business, and made a beautiful home in the warmth of southern California. Sarah says Greg is a sensitive, hard-working, and deeply loyal man with a good head for business. She loves to watch him bang on the drums, sing, and scrunch his forehead as he reads about neuroscience.
Sarah is the kindest, most compassionate person Greg has met. She hikes with our dogs and rides her horse Markelo. She gathers our friends together and cooks amazing food for everyone. We all love that!
Our Home & Pets
Our house is tucked into a lush hillside on a quiet street, protected from the bustle of the surrounding city. It’s modern on the outside but colorful and cozy inside. Across the street sits one of the largest urban parks in America, full of trees and trails to explore. At the bottom of the hill are adorable independent shops and romantic restaurants. There’s even a park with a miniature train that children can ride, and when they do, all you can see are their teeth from their gigantic smiles.
One of the best primary schools in the city is five minutes away. It’s ethnically diverse and filled with teachers who care. We work from home so we’re both here most of the time, watched over by our two hound dogs Fred & Otis.
Our Extended Family
Gregory's older brother and mother have both moved out to California in recent years. It's been great to have them so close. We get together regularly and go to the movies or eat dinners at our house. We have an uncanny ability to crack each other up all the time, laughing so hard it hurts!
Sarah's parents live in Ohio but visit us several times a year. The more they come to visit, the more they admit they want to move here where it’s warmer (and friendlier!). Sarah’s brother also moved out West and lives two hours away.
What Led Us To Adoption
Adoption has been a big part of Greg's family. We had always talked about adoption as a way to grow our family too. We have tried to conceive, but have been unsuccessful, this only made the path to adoption the clearer choice to grow our family. Whether this blessing comes to us biologically or through adoption it would be a dream come true. We feel that this is the path we are supposed to take and there is a baby that is meant for us.
We think of our closest friends as “chosen family.” They are not related to us biologically, but we love them unconditionally, with all our hearts, forever. It makes sense to us that there is an expectant mother out there, thinking about maybe finding the perfect chosen family to adopt her baby. What could be more loving than that?

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
