dear expectant mother

Thank you so much for taking the time to get to know us! We know you must be experiencing so many emotions and thoughts, and we may never be able to fully understand. But one thing we do know is that whatever choice you make will be the right one for you and your baby. We believe your love for your baby cannot and never will be questioned. We promise that you, your family, and your love will always be a part of your baby’s life and journey should you choose us. Though no one can see what the future has in store, we will work hard to ensure your baby grows up happy, safe, and knowing that they carry the love of someone who is extremely selfless and brave.

Please know, if you choose us, your baby will be welcomed into our loving, caring, and diverse family. They’ll go on exciting adventures, learn about generational recipes, and see a lot of the world, just to name a few! Additionally, our extended family will provide love, guidance, and support as well, allowing your child to grow up authentically themselves. The support and love they give already shows how excited they are to welcome a new addition! Every day of your baby’s life, every milestone and every smile will be supported and reinforced by the fact that the reason we are able to love them is because a brave woman loved them first.

With love,
Shawn and James

About Us

Hello! We are Shawn and James. Our story began in 2013, but at that time, our careers took us down different paths. An invite out with a mutual friend a few years later brought us back together, and the rest is history! We started spending more time together after realizing just how much we had in common, and we’ve now been married for two years. We’ve built an exciting and loving life together, supporting each other as teammates navigating life. We both work for the same major airline, Shawn as a manager and James as an instructor. We have the most amazing family and friends who love and support us on every journey, including this one, as we hope to grow our family and share the love we have to offer!

Our Home & Pets

We live in a three-bedroom, two-bathroom house in a Central Florida suburb. Our home and neighborhood are perfect for growing our family. Our house has plenty of room to play, including a den and fenced-in backyard. Our neighborhood is very family friendly and features a playground and gated pool. We are also located in an A-rated school district. We have a close-knit family unit of parents, cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents. A majority of James’s family live nearby in Central Florida. Shawn’s mom lives about 30 minutes away, and most of his family still live in Maryland; however, they enjoy visiting Florida. We are lovers of all animals! We have an energetic and doofy golden retriever named Colby and a very needy but loving cat named Lily.

Our Extended Family

Family is so important to us both! Our family is spread across several states, mostly in Florida and Maryland. James’ mom, stepdad, brother, and grandparents live locally, and we enjoy meeting them on the weekends for dinner, lunch, or just spending time together. James also has several cousins, aunts, and uncles.

Shawn’s mom lives close by, and we regularly see her in our free time. He also has a cousin who lives not too far away with his wife and two children whom we get to see on holidays and special occasions. In addition, Shawn has several aunts, uncles, and cousins in Maryland. To bridge the distance, we often have group Zoom calls to connect with everyone.

Our family loves to share recipes with each other across generations. Breaking bread and food, after all, always brings us closer together. We enjoy hosting holiday dinners at Thanksgiving and Christmas because it allows us to gather all our family together in one spot.

What Led Us To Adoption

We always knew we wanted to start and grow a family of our own. One of our best friends was adopted, and her story solidified our choice to adopt. James was raised in partnership with step-parents and Shawn by a single mother in the Army and extended family. Because of these experiences, we both believe love, above everything and regardless of blood relation, is the reason for family. We are blessed to be on this journey and to have the opportunity to welcome a child into our diverse and close-knit 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!
