dear expectant mother
From a hopeful mom-to-be to an expectant mother, I see you. I see your love for this baby. I see your impossible decision. I see your strength and courage. I know you want the absolute best for your baby, and I have nothing but admiration and honor for that.
I want you to know that I have had the time to experience the world, get to know myself, change, grow, and cultivate the best version of myself I can be to raise another human being. I hope to share that wisdom with your child. I will share that love comes in many shapes and forms, and that you love them and showed them the greatest gift of love anyone can give: self sacrifice for their ultimate benefit.
I thank you for reading my words, and even if I’m not the right choice for you and your child, I wish you love, support, and wisdom throughout this journey. If I might be the right person, I promise to fiercely love and support them. They will be heard and seen. They will always be protected and know they are safe. They will know God. They will know their potential and all the possibilities out there. I promise to give them access to adventure, travel, education, religion, creativity, athletics, family, hopes, dreams and laughter…..lots and lots of laughter.
Suzie & Chelsea
ME: adventurous, traveler, athletic, healthcare provider & dog mom. I love traveling and being active. I most recently was in the Azores and Morocco…..surfing, hiking, kayaking, canyoning, enjoying new foods and absorbing different cultures. I love helping others through volunteering and by my chosen profession. I work as a nurse anesthetist and get to help others get through some of their toughest times. My job provides me financial stability as well as the ability to have much time off to spend with loved ones and have great adventures. Another one of my great joys is being a mom to my fur baby, Chelsea. I adopted her when she was about two years old, and I couldn’t love her more. We love getting into nature for hikes, spending time with my sister’s family just down the road and curling up on the couch together watching a good movie.
My Home & Pets
Chelsea, my 4-year-old scruffy pup, and I enjoy all the big city has to offer while still getting that suburban, neighborhood feel. We live in a cul-de-sac which is great for kids to safely skate, scooter or bike ride. There’s a large, green space reserved for our immediate community, as well as several parks and trails within walking distance. We are within minutes of great restaurants and fun activities. My neighbors are wonderful and most have small children; we support each other like a village. We are very lucky to live in one of the best school districts in the nation. We love our home. Our favorite part is that it’s just down the road from my sister, brother-in-law, niece and nephews.
My Extended Family
My sister and I are very close, and I very much look forward to her family playing a large role in my future child’s life. She is so much fun, and a great mom of three: my 10yr old niece and 7 & 4yr old nephews, who all love to stay active playing basketball, baseball, softball, horseback riding, swimming, skiing and dancing. My brother-in-law is a super involved, loving father who will no doubt be a stable, male-figure for this child as will my own father. My mom and dad live at the beach, and we love taking family vacations there to all spend time together in our hometown. We also love family ski vacations. I have 5 aunts, 4 uncles, and 4 cousins. Chelsea and I will be hosting many of them for Christmas this year….we can’t wait to share our new home with them. My extended family are my friends who have supported me through this journey. They love me and will just as fiercely love this child. I will be including several letters from these individuals who will serve as extended father figures, uncles, aunts, mothers, & friends who will further expand this child’s world.
What Led Me To Adoption
I truly believe this is my calling and that all my roads have led me here.
I was engaged. We were told my fertility window was quickly closing, and that we needed to try IVF as soon as possible. I didn’t respond to IVF, and proceeded to go through a very heartbreaking time when I had to come to terms with the loss of both my fertility and my fiancé.
Since then, I explored several avenues to become a mother. Before pursuing a third round of attempting to become pregnant via donor egg and sperm, my heart felt called to adoption. Why create a child when there is already a beautiful child out there meant for me to love and care for him or her.

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!
