dear expectant mother
There are no easy words for us to come up with, and we don’t even know where to begin. We can’t imagine how strong and brave you have to be making this decision for your child and yourself. We are so thankful you are considering us to watch over and care for your child. We cannot imagine the emotions you are going through in this process, but you are admired for your strength and selflessness in this tough decision.
Should you choose us, your child will be surrounded by love, family, and adventure. They will grow up in a faith-filled home that allows them to explore who they are and what they want to become. Your child will be supported not only by us but by our families and friends. They will grow up traveling the country, hiking national parks, and creating memories that will last a lifetime but also be able to learn, grow, and just be a kid.
We wish you the best in making your decision and hope you find peace with whatever you decide. We would be honored and forever thankful if you chose us to care for your baby and would do everything in our power to make you proud.
We are Tasha and Dan. We met in 2012 and bonded over burritos. We got married five years later in 2017 at Tasha’s home church with many family and friends in attendance. Tasha is fun, loving, and crafty and enjoys spending time with family and friends. Tasha spends a lot of time in the kitchen baking or in her craft room quilting. Dan is compassionate and funny and enjoys outdoor activities. Dan spends most of the summer playing golf and beach volleyball or enjoying campfires with friends. Tasha works in the hospitality industry as a director of sales, and Dan is an assistant men’s volleyball coach at a university. In our spare time, we love to golf, play volleyball, camp, hike, and spend time with our families and friends.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a nice neighborhood in a Midwestern city. We are only a few hours away from larger metropolis areas, and there are many festivals and farmers markets we love to attend. We recently moved into our forever home, which will allow us to grow our family. There is also a large backyard and family rooms to gather with family and friends. We even have a pinball machine that Tasha grew up playing at her grandparents’ house. We are close to many parks, stores, church, and family and friends. We have two cats: our princess, Miley, and our troublemaker, Rosco. We also have our biggest baby, a Great Dane named Marvin. He loves kids and laying on “his” couch most of the day.
Our Extended Family
We love to spend time with both of our families. Many of our weekend activities and travel opportunities involve being with or going to see family. Spending time with family is an important part of our life.
Tasha’s parents live about 20 minutes away from us, and we spend a lot of time with them. We get together to play games at one of our houses, watch football games, grill, or enjoy campfires. We have gone on several family vacations with Tasha’s parents and look forward to being able to bring children on these future trips. Tasha also has a family reunion that gathers every summer at the lake. This has been going on for 65 years and started with her great-grandma’s siblings. This is a trip we look forward to every year.
Dan’s parents, twin brother, and older brother are all just about a four-hour drive for us. We get together for holidays and various weekends to go visit each group. Dan’s family also has a family reunion every summer at his grandparents’ farm that has been in the family for over 150 years.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have always wanted to have a family. We felt the call to adopt as we were struggling to conceive on our own. Tasha’s uncle adopted his oldest son and has recently adopted two young children. We also have a friend who was adopted who has shared her story with us and inspired us to pursue adoption. We feel our lives would be enhanced through adoption. We can’t wait to become parents!

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!
