dear expectant mother
As you embark on this journey to consider adoption, we want to say thank you for your selfless act of love. We recognize your strength and longing to put the needs of your child above the desires of your heart. We know this is not an easy decision,
and we can’t begin to imagine how challenging this decision has been for you. We want you to know you are not alone, you are so brave, and, above everything else, you are loved.
Your consideration for adoption is one of the most courageous things a mother can do. You truly are a blessing to our family, and we want you to know we are faithfully praying for you and your precious baby. Your child will be raised in a loving Christian home, where faith, joy, love, and laughter are at the center of everything we do.
We are so grateful you have chosen to read our profile and potentially provide us with the opportunity to fulfill our dreams of becoming a family of three.The act of love you are making is one of the most difficult decisions you’ll ever make and we are so thankful, humbled, and blessed by your decision, because our prayers have been answered.
We want you to know that we will never forget the sacrifice you made and recognize the complexity of your loss as the greatest gift we could ever receive, the gift of love.
Steve is a homemaker after spending 20 years with the same financial institute, and he is ready to be a stay-at-home dad and have an active role in our child’s life! Deb works from home and designs learning curriculum; she enjoys the flexibility her schedule provides and will also be extremely involved.
Our friends describe us as “the least judgmental and loving couple, who are always there no matter what and would give you the shirt off their back if you needed it.” We are a loving and devoted couple who genuinely care for one another and can complete each other's sentences. We always communicate, our relationship is built on trust and we strive to make each other laugh daily. We believe life is meant to be lived, not watched from the sidelines. We are dreamers and are excited to see our biggest dream come true as we pursue adoption.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a three-bedroom villa in central Indiana, moving back to the Midwest after five years in Coastal Virginia. We felt we were being called back home to be closer to our family we grew up with. We’ve only been back in the area for about three months now, and we are quickly meeting new friends through our church and Deb’s job. We are now much closer to Deb’s mom and her life partner, Deb’s brother and his girlfriend, Steve’s mom and siblings, and Deb’s dad and step-mom. We are excited to be back in the Midwest and to share our home with a little one.
Our Extended Family
We are very blessed to now live within minutes of Deb’s mom and life partner. We are also just a short drive from Deb’s brother, his girlfriend, and their puppy, Stella. We can make a trip to see Steve’s family in a day, as well as Deb’s dad and step-mom.
We enjoy traveling, so we also visit friends and some of Deb’s other relatives in the area. Steve does his best to stay in touch with his dad, who lives in Virginia; they talk monthly. We had also become very close to our neighbor in Virginia, and she became our adopted grandma. We talk to her on the phone monthly, as well; she’s in her nineties and still lives alone.
This summer, we are excited to visit with friends from Virginia who will be coming to visit; they have two teenage sons, who were adopted.
What Led Us To Adoption
At a young age, Deb was diagnosed with a medical condition that left her unable to have children. We knew from the time we met having a family was important to us, and we knew adoption was the way we would grow our family. Fast forward to 2015, and the desire to adopt grew stronger. We started putting a plan in place by sharing the news with our friends and family. There are so many people who have supported us on our journey; when they say it truly takes a village there’s nothing cliché about it. We are blessed and honored to have the opportunity to walk by faith to expand our family by two little feet.

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
