dear expectant mother
Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to introduce ourselves and our family. We are grateful that you love your unborn child so much that you are willing to consider an adoption, and we know this time must be very stressful for you; however, we honor your strength and courage, and we hope the background we’ve provided will give you comfort and confidence that we can provide a loving, caring home and life for your child. We both have very strong family values and family support systems. We have not only been fortunate to be supported by our family, but we have now entered a phase of our life where we are now able to share these experiences with your child.
We are very excited for every aspect of raising a child, from caring for a newborn to taking them on a vacation, showing them how to roast marshmallows and hike. We are excited to expose your child to different sports, like golf, baseball, and soccer, and we can’t wait to see how his or her friendships begin and flourish. Most importantly, we are excited to have a child in our day to day lives and to involve them in everything we and our families routinely do, from cooking meals, to play time, to birthday parties, holidays meals, and the many more activities that take place at these events.
We both grew up in the Midwest with loving families, and we met nine years ago at the holiday party of a mutual friend. After her initial introduction, we spent most of the night talking and playing trivia games together. We knew when we met we were perfect for each other, as we are both down-to-earth and have similar senses of humor. At the end of the night, we walked to our cars and promised to see each other again the next day. We did, and we’ve hardly left each others’ sides since. We have now been married for over four years and have enjoyed every second of it, having many activities we like doing together, such as grilling, spending time outdoors, watching sports, biking, hiking, and playing golf.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a quiet neighborhood on a half-acre lot, with fantastic schools very close by. Our home is a two-story, five-bedroom house with a patio and garden in the backyard. We can’t wait to teach your child how to pick vegetables out of the garden and play in the backyard. We have two small cockapoo dogs that we regularly walk down to the park at the end of the street, which has a playground and hosts local festivals. We also have one cat, who thinks he’s a dog! He’ll try to play fetch with the other dogs in the house. Your child will have loads of fun playing with the three of them.
Our Extended Family
Steve has one brother, who is married and has two adult children, and one sister, who is also married. We enjoy going to their parents’ house for holidays to celebrate with both his immediate family and his extended family, which consists of 30-40 cousins. The majority of Steve’s family lives within a 30-minute drive, so we get to see them often, but his sister lives on the west coast, so while we strive to see them at holidays we do not get to see them as often as we would like.
Meanwhile, Andrea has one sister, who is married and lives on the east coast, and her extended family lives about two hours away.
We enjoy having all of our extended family over for cookouts, watching football games, and for the holidays. We also enjoy playing board games or playing “Name That Tune” with Pandora or Spotify. Everyone is always laughing and having fun, and we cannot wait to welcome your child into our arms.
What Led Us To Adoption
At this time, we are unable to have biological children, and after careful consideration, we felt adoption would be the best option for us to expand our family. We have friends and family members who have expanded their families through adoption, and so have seen the process first-hand. We have also had conversations with many of the grown children in our families who were adopted, and each child seemed very happy to have been adopted into loving families. Adoption, we have seen, is a gift for parents and children both, to expand their families in unprecedented ways and experience the love that only this kind of bond can bring.

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
