dear expectant mother
We hope you are doing well! Thank you for considering adoption! We can only imagine the emotions you are going through to make a decision like this. On our side, it is also emotional and challenging as we walk through the steps of the adoption process. Adoption is not an easy choice, but there are couples that would make really good parents that haven’t been able to have a child themselves. We believe we are one of those couples! If you choose us, your baby will be greatly loved! We plan on raising them the way every child should be, knowing that they are loved and that their parents believe in them. We plan to cuddle them a lot, hold and rock them sweetly to sleep, and give them lots of kisses. As they grow, we want to take them on many adventures! From hiking and biking to car rides and traveling, they will have a full life surrounded by people who love them!
We are a loving couple who has a great support system around us. Our friends and family are excited for this next step in our lives, and all believe we would be amazing parents. From volunteering in the nursery at church to being the favorite aunt and uncle, we are ready and excited for this next step!
We’re sure you have lots of questions, and we look forward to answering as many as we can. We pray God leads you to the perfect family for your baby. Thanks for considering us, and feel free to ask questions! We’re happy to answer them!

We are a couple who laughs and teases a lot. Joel likes to do funny things to see if Theresa notices, like place things really high where shorter Theresa can’t reach. Theresa will hide cookies and chocolate down low where Joel doesn’t think to look. We also like to give little surprises to each other. One early morning, Theresa jumped in her car to go to work, and there was a chocolate glazed donut on the dash of the car from her handsome husband. On another day, Joel found some freshly made chocolate chip cookies on his desk in his home office from his wonderful wife. During the day, Joel works as a website specialist, and in the evening, he is often found working in the garage on a car project. Theresa is a teacher of great middle school minds by day and turns into a flower caretaker and recreational bicyclist by night.
Our Home & Pets
Our suburban home has five bedrooms and three bathrooms. It is a nice home with a good-sized front and back yard. We have one smart dog named Jacks and one sweet cat named Charlie. We have friendly neighbors, and many kids can be seen running back and forth to homes and biking up and down the street. We have at least three parks within walking distance from our home. Our location is near the big city and not far from state parks and community centers. The local school district has a good reputation, although we may choose private education when the time comes.
Our Extended Family
We are very close to our family. We get together for most holidays, including Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, and Fourth of July. During our time together, we make festive meals and play games.
Joel’s parents live within 30 minutes of us, and we visit them often. For Christmas, we have a special tradition of the whole family coming over, including all four sons and families, and we fondue steak while snacking on side dishes. Then we listen to the Christmas story and do a gift exchange.
Theresa’s parents live a little over an hour away. They have a tradition of going up north to a cabin for a week every summer. Theresa’s brother and kids all come up. We have fun playing by the water, canoeing, and fishing. We also go to turtle races, eat pizza, and go out for ice cream. For Mother’s Day, we started a tradition where Theresa’s parents drive up and we go out flower shopping to a large fundraising flower sale. We shop together and pick out all the plants we want to put in our gardens that summer.
What Led Us To Adoption
After we got married, we were looking forward to starting a family. Adoption has always been a topic of conversation, although we didn’t realize how soon it would come into play. After trying fertility treatments and learning we weren't going to have a child without help, we began pursuing adoption. With our dream to grow our family, it would be a great blessing to us to have and hold a child and get to raise them. We look forward to sharing our love and home with a special little one.

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
