dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
We are thankful for this opportunity to be brought together through these special circumstances. Every child is a blessing, and considering an adoption plan is beautiful. We are coming from a place of love for this child and want to give them the best life possible. We know your decision will not be made lightly. We have been praying for you and the baby, that you might find peace in considering adoption. We know this choice is made out of love, and that’s what we have for you and the baby. In our eyes, your decision to consider adoption demonstrates selflessness and bravery. Should you choose us, know that your baby will grow up knowing your love and understanding your strength and courage in making this choice. We are grateful for how much love this child will bring to our family.
We hope our profile has provided a glimpse into our family and that you see the love we have for each other. On our fourth date, we both expressed our great desire to grow our future family through adoption. Your precious gift could be our biggest blessing to bring our adoption dream to reality. We are excited to have this child share in our adventures, traveling to new places, and appreciating God’s beauty in the outdoors. You will always be in our hearts and prayers. Thank you for considering us.

We have been married for two years. We met on a blind date when we were set up by a mutual friend. We bonded over our passion for the pro-life movement, baseball, and our faith (as well as superhero movies). Steve is an introvert but is very quick witted and loves to make people laugh. He has worked in the human resources field for eight years. Deanna is the creative extrovert who pours her heart into loving everyone she meets. She has been an early childhood/special ed teacher for 15 years. Our adventurous personalities have taken us around our home state of Missouri as well as the U.S. Our goal is to visit each state capital and run a race in each state. We love to hike, camp, and explore museums. We have friends over monthly for Fire Pit Friday, sharing food and fellowship while solving the problems of the world.
Our cozy, ranch-style home has three bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms. We have a fenced-in backyard with plenty of room to run around. Our basement is partially finished, with many games to play and a library of books that can satisfy just about any bookworm. Our home is within walking distance of three wonderful parks with playgrounds, ballfields, and swimming pools. We are also within walking distance of the local library and an ice cream shop. We frequent the local main street, which has many festivals, restaurants, and family-friendly events. Our neighborhood is made up of many families with young children, with plenty of sidewalks for taking family strolls.
Our Extended Family
Deanna’s family is overjoyed we are adopting, and they are looking forward to the additional fishing buddy on family fishing adventures. Deanna’s family has a bread baking tradition every year in December and can’t wait to have an extra set of hands to knead extra love into each loaf. Most of Deanna’s family lives nearby and loves playing many boisterous rounds of the card game liverpool.
Steve’s family couldn’t be more excited to add a bundle of joy to the family. We have an annual cookie baking tradition every year in December that has been going on for 75 years. Steve’s family lives nearby as well as across the country. We love spending the holidays together as well as vacations visiting out-of-town family.
Although our parish community isn’t made up of blood relatives, they are very much a part of our family. They are thrilled we are adopting and can’t wait to spoil him or her.
What Led Us To Adoption
Deanna knew Steve was the one for her on the fourth date, when she asked him what his thoughts were on adoption. His heart was open, and adoption became a part of our plan to grow our family. We both love children and want to provide a loving home no matter how they are entrusted to us. We have several friends who have adopted. Seeing the love of their family grow has inspired us, deepening our desire 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!
