dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
This letter cannot even put into words how extremely grateful and happy we are to our future child’s possible mother. Thank you so much for considering us! We will be eternally grateful and cannot express enough how much we appreciate you considering choosing us.
You are amazing for considering giving the greatest gift you could ever give a person. We will be extraordinary parents to your child if you choose us because we want this more than anything and are loving, faith-oriented, and kind people. If you choose us, your baby will be surrounded by not only parents who love and adore them but also our family and friends, who will be a huge part of their lives. We are financially and emotionally ready to raise a child.
Just know that we will always appreciate this kind act you are considering doing for strangers. We will not let you down with raising your child. We hope you trust us with the biggest blessing we will ever receive. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Our names are Eric and Stefanie, and we live in Michigan. Our town was voted one of the top cities in the country to raise a family, and we really hope to do so! Eric has a good sense of humor, loves helping people, is hardworking, is honest, and is a sweet person. Stefanie has a similar sense of humor to Eric and loves her family and friends. She is caring, nurturing, smart, and easy to get along with. We have been married for 15 years and are still very much in love. We love to have date days where we go to a local park to hammock, walk, or even roller skate. We love being outside sitting on our patio or at the beach. We also enjoy shopping together or having date nights out.
Our Home & Pets
We live in an urban area in Michigan. We have many great schools in our city, many activities, and lots of restaurants and shopping available in our area. We have a two-story home with two rooms available for a baby’s bedroom and playroom. We have a patio with a full, fenced-in backyard. We have been at our home since 2012 and have done a few home updates like new flooring, new bathroom fixtures, and painting rooms. One of the biggest perks of the location of our home is the closeness to our jobs and Eric’s family. Many of our friends live nearby as well. We have two dachshund dogs named Penny and Ricky. We have two pet birds named Carla and Luigi and a tropical fish tank.
Our Extended Family
We both are extremely close to our families. Every Sunday we go to Eric’s parents’ house for lunch; they live only five minutes away. We spend every Sunday afternoon with them just catching up and letting our dachshunds socialize. Eric’s parents have a dachshund named Frankie. Stefanie’s mom, brother, sister-in-law, and nephew all live in southern Illinois. We try to visit our Illinois family as much as possible, especially since Stefanie’s dad passed away in 2017 and our nephew was born in 2021. We are so excited for our baby to have a cousin close in age to grow up with. We also have Eric’s brother, his sister-in-law, and their two children. They will also be excited to have a cousin to play with.
Every Christmas, we spend a few days in Illinois soaking up as much family time as possible. Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve are spent with Eric’s family, including extended family. We all have a good time prepping for our holiday meal, baking cookies and pies, playing board games, and enjoying a holiday movie like Home Alone or Christmas Vacation.
What Led Us To Adoption
We both have always known we wanted to be parents, but unfortunately, after many failed fertility treatments, we have been unable to conceive a child. We are so grateful adoption is an option to have our own family. We have waited to start a family so we know we can provide the very best life for a child as we are financially secure, emotionally secure, and mature enough to raise a family. As a couple, we are closer now than we have ever been, and what will fulfill our lives more than anything is bringing a child home.

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!
