dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
Thank you so much for the sacrifice you’re making. I know it is hard both mentally and emotionally, but it shows such great strength that you’ve chosen this path. Choosing a family for your baby is one of the most important decisions you’ll make and is one of your first decisions as a parent to this infant. I know you will choose the best home possible.
If I am lucky enough to be chosen as that home, I promise you your baby will have an excellent life. I will ensure your baby has access to quality healthcare, an education where they can be themselves and learn in a safe environment, healthy and delicious food, a community of friends and family, lots of toys, and every now and again I’ll sneak in a few pieces of candy. You can rest assured that my dogs and cat are so excited to have your baby join our family as well. There will be tails wagging and tongues panting as soon as I bring a baby home! I’m sure we’ll have lots of photos of the baby snuggling their furry siblings we can send if you want them. Most of all, your baby will be in a home where love is abundant.
I am an outgoing, hardworking, and sociable pet lover. I work in the field of environmental sustainability, which I truly believe is my life’s purpose. Right now I am a regional director for a national non-profit and have the pleasure of doing the bulk of my work from home. When I’m not working, I enjoy reading or engaging in outdoor and arts-based activities. For instance, I finish anywhere between 30 and 50 books a year, and I often perform cover songs or original poetry at open mic. I also like to go on hikes or spend time kayaking in the summertime. I spend a lot of time with friends who truly feel like family and are very supportive of my journey to parenthood.
My Home & Pets
I live in a lovely home in a suburban community of North Carolina. While I don’t live with any other people, I do have two dogs (ages 10 and 6) and a cat (age 10). I’ve had all of my pets for their whole lives, and I truly consider them a part of the family. I enjoy having a fenced-in yard where they can play or all sit out on the patio together. What I love about my community is being close to restaurants, shops, a recreation center, and a grocery store. It’s all so convenient! But even with the amenities, it’s still quiet and safe.
My Extended Family
I grew up in a family of six, with two parents and three siblings. My older sister lives in our hometown, where she’s a minister and landlord, and my younger sister lives abroad, where she’s a musician. Our younger brother was in the military but has since passed away. I go home one to two times a year. My younger sister also comes to visit me, and I go visit her regularly. We enjoy doing karaoke together. She’s currently pregnant, so my future baby will have a close cousin.
In my current state, I have a really close friend network. My closest friends and I like to do things together like spa days, concerts, or cookouts. We see each other at least every week (if not multiple times a week), and we talk every single day. One of my close friends, who lives nearby, has a one-year-old foster son she intends to adopt. I sometimes get together with them for ice cream or activities like pumpkin painting! My friend’s foster son will make another good friend for my future baby, who will be close in age. I’m looking forward to our potential playdates!
What Led Me To Adoption
I am very excited about the prospect of adopting. There have been many reasons that have led to my decision to adopt. First, I feel I am at a place in my life when I can offer a baby love and stability, and I am ready to be a mom. In the past, I was a foster parent and felt good about being a temporary option for youth who needed support, but at this point, I’m ready for permanent parenthood. I feel really passionate about being a mother and loving any child I’m blessed to have join my family.

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!
