dear expectant mother
Our Possible Angel,
We admire your strength and courage and are beyond grateful you are considering an adoption plan. We are two vibrant women who love family and live life to the fullest, but more than anything, we long to share this knowledge and our experiences with a child of our own.
If you choose us, we will incorporate your child in traditions, such as birthday celebrations, where not only is their day special but the fun and appreciation shown while celebrating others makes it feel like it’s their birthday all over again. We’ll also cultivate an environment that promotes creativity, so if they find something special, they can introduce a new tradition or modify an old one.
We’ve prayed for and anticipated this moment, and several months ago we moved to a larger place and designated a room “The Baby’s Room”; even our friends and family refer to it as such. Not only are we elated to welcome a newborn but we look forward to getting to know and welcoming you—but ONLY if that is your desire too. We appreciate you and the tremendous act of love and sacrifice you are considering extending to us.
Cheers to the next chapter,
Starr & Jenn
A Redskins-loving, witty, sporty, brainiac met a Cowboys-loving, tree-hugging, intuitive, positive beam in the fall of 2001, where we became platonic best friends. In fall 2017 we actually realized we were more and fell in love. We both adore road tripping, concerts, cooking, playing games, watching scary movies, swimming, and being with friends and family. We love traveling so much that we took a year off and traveled the U.S. and Canada full-time, living in our personally designed Promaster van with our dog, Budha. Jennifer works as a program manager for a large medical laboratory and oversees one of their labs a thousand miles away. Starr is a grants officer, a vegan chef, and a spiritual advisor. Although our jobs can be intense, we are the life of the party, the go-to when anyone needs an ear, peacemakers, and an eclectically traditional couple.
Our Home & Pets
We live in suburban northern Virginia in a two-bedroom, two-bath home. Everyone always speaks of how cozy it is in our house when they come over since we keep it colorful, light, and fun. Our neighborhood is made up of mixed race families with pets. There are trails, a basketball/tennis court, a clubhouse, a lake, and a pool in the complex too. We can’t wait to bring a baby on walks and to have playdates with families in our community. There are spiritual centers, playgrounds, grocery stores, a mall, schools, recreation centers, child STEM centers, a movie theater, and restaurants within walking distance. There are so many family-friendly things to do here.
Our Extended Family
We come from a long line of traditions and values. Since we love hosting at our house, holidays (including birthdays) are important. At midnight, it is your birthday, and that is when the celebrations begin. We are sure your child will get excited about this early on. Before Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Kwanzaa begin, it is time to write the menu and assign who is making what, who brings the games, who’s queuing the music, and what movies we are watching. We also share what we are grateful for during gatherings too.
We are a silly bunch but hold education, respect, and health in high regard. The baby’s grandparents are eager to travel with them, teach them how to make homemade biscuits, attend church, and tell the baby stories about us. Our friends are family too; they all have children and look forward to this journey with us. Your baby will have a ball and learn a lot while looking forward to having mom’s homemade apple pie the morning after Thanksgiving for breakfast. It takes a village to raise a child.
What Led Us To Adoption
We were both born to be mothers. Energy doesn’t lie, and all of our energy has gone toward having children for years. Deciding to adopt feels like the choice we have always wanted, and we are so blessed to now have that opportunity. One of our closest friends was adopted, and we have seen how beautiful that really is, especially when the family and surrounding friends are there to support. We cannot wait to involve a new baby (or babies) in our daily lives full of adventure, humorous times, and beautiful growth. This is OUR dream: to adopt.

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
