dear expectant mother
The words “thank you” seem much too simple to express the depth of our gratitude to you for considering us to raise your baby. We couldn’t possibly begin to understand how difficult this decision is for you. However, we want you to be assured that your baby will be loved immensely and provided a safe home. Your baby will be surrounded by not only our love, but that of our family and friends. We cannot promise your child a life free from pain or hurt, but we can promise that we will be by your child’s side through any obstacles he or she may encounter during life’s journey. We will love him or her unconditionally, and we are committed to doing the best we can to raise your child the best way we know. We will cherish your child as a precious treasure.
We hope we are able to convey how much we will love and care for your baby, as he or she will be the link to making our family complete. Thank you again for considering us. We will be eternally grateful to you for the chance to welcome a second miracle baby into our home. We admire you so much for your strength, courage, and love during this process. May your life be blessed with beauty, wonder, and joy. Our full love goes out to you. Always.
We like to think of ourselves as loving, hardworking, and goal-oriented people. Katie is employed as a Registered Dietitian, and Terry is a union operator. We are going on ten years of marriage! Terry is also a City Council member which gives him the opportunity to shape our community into a safe and thriving place for children. We are also small business owners with five rental units. Our family enjoys cooking and baking, home renovation projects, fishing, boating, gardening, and anything else outdoors. However, our one true passion is spending time with family and friends. We are so fortunate, as we both come from stable and loving families who have supported us throughout our lives. We have also been blessed with our son, Lawson, who has brought so much to our lives. We would be eternally grateful to add another gracious and beautiful gift to our family.
Our Home & Pets
Our home is a two-level ranch with a screened-in porch and large deck conveniently located between our community’s schools. We have a big sandbox and a kid’s play set in our large backyard. Our home is surrounded by flower gardens in addition to our small vegetable garden, and we have a purebred black Labrador Retriever who is an excellent family dog. Our neighborhood is very safe and within walking distance to all three parks in our community of 2,000 people. We enjoy the river that runs along our town, the monthly live family music at the park, our community carnival, our annual blues music event, the nearby bike trail, and the pool.
Our Extended Family
Family has always been the most important thing in our lives. Our extended family includes maternal and paternal parents, five sets of aunts and uncles, and nine cousins ranging from ages four to 23 years. Our hearts feel completely full when we see all of our families’ kids playing together and teaching each other new things. We all have such a beautiful bond that only gets stronger with time. Moreover, we have many other aunts, uncles, and cousins whom we most often see at holidays. We enjoy playing family trivia, board games, and many card games.
In addition, each year for the Fourth of July, our family has a fishing contest and a potluck which always consists of such delicious food. Then, at dusk, we all get to enjoy the beautiful fireworks display. Another family tradition we have is Christmas, when Santa comes and hands out gifts to all of the children. Some children are fans of him, while others not so much. It is pretty enjoyable to watch.
Our entire family is very supportive and looking forward to being a significant part of your baby’s life.
What Led Us To Adoption
When we joined in marriage our plan was to have at least two children as we have both wanted children our entire adult life. We journeyed through the struggle of infertility for years which finally blessed us with our son, Lawson. He has given us and our family so much joy. We are hoping and praying to be blessed with our second miracle child through adoption. We have so much in our hearts to give, and our only desire is to ensure that your baby’s life is happy and full of love.

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
