We have been praying for you since the day we decided to adopt. Although we cannot understand what you are going through, we do understand where your decision is coming from. You clearly love and want the best for your unborn child and so do we! If we were graced with the opportunity to adopt your baby, you can rest assured that your child would be surrounded by love and support from the moment he or she is in our arms.
While our dream is to have a child, we recognize that this can only come with your sacrifice. We have spent some time listening to Seth’s mom share about her experience with adoption, in an attempt to better understand what you are feeling. However, we still cannot comprehend the decision you are faced with or the emotions you are feeling. We are so humbled by this truth and we have the greatest of amount respect and admiration for you. Your selfless act would bring us endless joy.
Thank you for your courage. Regardless of your decision know that you are in the hearts and prayers of not only ourselves but also the many people we have behind us. Your unborn child will be the greatest blessing to one fortunate family.
We are high school sweethearts and have been together for 10 years. Seth is a pastor at a local church and I am a case manager in community mental health. As evidenced by our careers, we have a passion for people and find purpose in helping others. Though we are both very involved in our professional careers, we prioritize our relationships with family and friends as well. Some of our greatest memories include family vacations and annual parties that we host for our friends. Seth and I are both very competitive in nature and that is where our love for sports comes in. We enjoy watching, playing, and coaching sports, but mostly kicking each other's butts in a good game of one-on-one basketball!
Our Home & Pets
We live in a cozy raised ranch in a beautiful suburban community. Our home is located a block away from multiple trails for running, biking, or walking. We are also right around the corner from an elementary school and a large park with a variety of activities. We have two Labradors, Duke and Saydee, our “fur babies.” They are both very loving and playful but each have their own personality. Duke is our 5-year-old black lab who is so gentle and cuddly, he makes napping last much longer than it should! Saydee is our 4-year-old chocolate lab who will forever be our playful pup. Her idea of a perfect day is a long run, fetching a ball or frisbee, AND swimming.
Our Extended Family
Seth is the youngest of 3 siblings. Ramona is the youngest of 8. Together we have about 26 nieces and nephews, whom we adore. Both of our parents are still living and very much so a part of our lives. We have a different, but equally special relationship with both sides of our family. Each summer, we vacation with Seth’s family and we routinely visit Ramona’s parents who live on a farm in the country. Due to Ramona’s larger family, most of her siblings are scattered throughout the U.S. When time and finances permit, we travel to them and spend time catching up.
What Led Us To Adoption
We always knew that we would adopt a child, we didn’t; however, know that it would be due to infertility. Over the past 6 years of heartbreak related to our inability to conceive, we were faced with the decision of IVF treatments or adoption. Many things contributed to our decision to adopt. One being that our lives have already been impacted by adoption in many ways. Ramona’s best friend was adopted and we’ve seen the beauty in her story. Also, Seth’s mother gave a child up for adoption when she was a teenager. Through many conversations with her and Jennifer (the child she gifted), we were given a small window into the incredible gift of adoption. Finally, during the last few years, we were blessed with the opportunity to foster Ramona’s niece and nephew for 3 years. Those 3 years were so special to us. We learned a lot about ourselves as individuals and as a couple. Most importantly, we learned that we could love a child as our own, even if we did not birth him/her. When they returned to their mother, we felt an ache in our hearts because we had so much love to share with a child, but did not have a child to give it to. The choice was clear. We are so excited and honored to adopt, it will truly be the greatest gift we ever receive.

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
