dear expectant mother
Hello. I hope this letter finds you at a place of peace. I recognize that the decision that you have made is probably one of the most difficult things you will have to deal with. I’m doing my best to realize the emotion that is involved in making a decision like this. I won’t even try and put myself in your shoes because there is simply no way I can comprehend what you are going through. I can only imagine the feelings that are involved and I see such bravery in your choice.
I am so excited at the opportunity of becoming a mother. I am at a place in my life where I am ready to start a family. I find myself particularly grateful that you are choosing to go down this path of adoption. I would be blessed and honored to go down this path with you.
I’m a 39 year old single woman originally from Idaho, born and raised. I moved to the Chicagoland area for my job approximately 4 years ago and I love it. I’m a District Manager and I cover a territory of customers in the Chicagoland area for a commercial truck manufacturer. I visit customers and give presentations, along with trainings to answer questions about different products that my company manufactures. It’s a great job that I really enjoy and, lucky for me, seem to be pretty good at.
I’m an extremely happy person and try to live most days with this attitude. I’m a glass is half full person and with a positive attitude really do try hard to make the best out of any situation.
My Home & Pets
I live in a 3 bedroom/3 bathroom townhouse that is situated in the corner of the cul-de-sac in my neighborhood. It’s a great area with a lot of diverse neighbors. Some of my neighbors are retired, some have kids, some are single like me, but everyone is very nice and friendly and there really is such a community feel to it. My back yard is pretty secluded because I’m the last townhouse on the block, so it is surrounded by trees. I absolutely love grilling out in the back yard and can even watch the fireflies in the summer time. Also, there are a lot of parks and trails close to me that I walk to and enjoy on a regular basis.
My Extended Family
I have a fantastic family. My folks have been married for 42 years. I have 2 brothers, 1 older and 1 younger, and 1 sister who is 13 months older than me. We are very close and would do anything for each other. When we get together there is always a lot of laughing and we have a great time with one another and are completely there for each other through whatever life brings our way. The best memories I have of my family are all the vacations we would go on in our pop up trailer and minivan. We would pack up a cooler, stuff ourselves into the van and hit the road. These days we don’t all live in the same town but try and get together as often as we can. I feel extremely lucky to have been blessed with such a great family and am excited to raise a child in that atmosphere.
What Led Me To Adoption
Deciding to adopt was not a quick decision for me, especially as a single woman. I was raised in a pretty “traditional” family unit with a Mom, Dad, and three siblings and always envisioned growing my family that in a similar fashion. Sometimes, however, life just doesn’t go exactly as planned and that is ok. Families are made up of all different dynamics these days, and I know I can successfully raise a child. It has all come down to the conclusion that I really would like to be a mother and I know with the love and support I have I will be able to provide a great life and sense of family to your child.

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
