dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mama,
We don’t know each other yet, but if chosen, we’d be honored and full of gratitude to bring both you and your baby into our family at any level you are comfortable with. Over the years, we’ve built a reasonably comfortable life and would love to share that with another child. We have one beautiful son who has brought so much joy into our lives. We really want him to have a sibling to share with and love.
It has always been a mutual desire of ours to adopt. We promise to provide unwavering love, support, dedication, and opportunity for your child to flourish. If you choose us, your child will have a nurse and dietitian as parents to care for them and help them grow to lead a healthy and protected life. We’ve been married for 12 years now, and our energy is very much family focused. Our parenting goals are to raise positive, healthy, creative members of society. There will be no pressure to take any set path, but there will be support to pursue their dreams. They won’t grow up spoiled, per se, but they will be spoiled with opportunities to pursue their interests. Discipline will be provided appropriately out of love and not harshly out of anger. This will be a life-long commitment.
We’re two very real, compassionate people who believe the right mother who reads this will feel the spark to begin a connection. We humbly ask to meet you and are already thankful for you.

Ryan is currently an ICU float nurse. He enjoyed open heart surgery patients the most then more recently worked in the thick of the pandemic. He’s pretty social, and he loves getting together with friends and family in his freetime. He loves sports; he’s become an avid snowboarder and rides his bicycle for exercise but focuses more on time with family. His current hobby is bringing the yard in our new home back to life. Sarah is a dietitian working as a clinical coordinator to help support patients on drug therapy as part of their treatment for a metabolic disorder. Her hobbies and interests include gardening, which is newer since having a yard recently, as well as cooking, music, traveling, jogging or cycling, exploring parks, outdoor activities, and dancing. We have a six-year-old son who is mister social, super sweet, and excited about all things monster trucks and sports.
Our Home & Pets
We moved into our home recently and absolutely love our neighborhood. We have one dog, Seamus, who’s nearly nine years old and loves his family. We live in a tight-knit neighborhood with lots of young families and retirees who love getting outside. Everyone looks out for one another, and there are frequent holiday and neighborhood activities. We have a neighborhood pool, basketball court, soccer field, and playground we enjoy regularly. We’re a few hours’ drive between beaches and mountains we love to visit as well. A large factor in choosing our location was for the school district, which offers opportunities such as a charter school and a foreign language immersion program. We’re also very close to Sarah’s parents, who are a big support.
Our Extended Family
A child brought into our home will inherit a big brother, one pup, two highly dedicated parents, and four very involved grandparents. They’ll have three (soon to be four) cousins, three sets of aunts and uncles, and a large extended family of other aunts, uncles, and cousins down the line whom we regularly keep in contact with. We also have several close friends we spend time with.
Any excuse to get together is a good one in our minds. We like to enjoy holidays, birthdays, and events together. Primarily, quality time is a very important concept in our world. We usually do a beach or mountain trip with each side of our family and will go to visit cousins often.
What Led Us To Adoption
We both have always had a heart for adoption. We weren’t sure how that would be part of our story but now hope to adopt as we would love to grow our family and have been unable to have more children. Our son also asks for a sibling on the regular as he has so much love to share. We have a couple friends who have adopted, and what a wonderful blessing we have seen them experience.

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
