dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
We would feel blessed and honored to join you on your adoption journey. Your love is very brave, and we admire you for it. We, too, want to let love lead and grow our hearts and lives by becoming a family for your little child-to-be. We’re a loving couple in our late 30s that has been married for almost ten years, and we want to share all that we love about life and living, which includes gardening, reading, art, construction, mechanics, and how to get along and be compassionate.
You have much to teach as well with your own brave love, and we want to stay connected with you and build a friendship with you also. Adoption is an emotional journey, and we want to walk beside you in it and help you along the way in any way we can. You are not in this alone. Your child is a blessing, and we offer our humble gratitude if we get to be so lucky as to share in that blessing.
Beth & Tim
We met in college and fell in love while working on volunteer construction projects together. We got married and bought a house with a yard where Beth could start her gardening, and Tim built her a greenhouse shed. We both love home remodeling and have done painting, shelving, and various other improvements together around the house. On an average evening, we go on a walk and then curl up on the couch to watch TV after dinner, but we also love the outdoors and have an adventurous side. In the spring and summer, we love to travel and go camping, hiking, and canoeing. When we travel, we either read to each other in the car or listen to audiobooks together. We eagerly look forward to sharing our love of reading with a child.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a newer neighborhood and are surrounded by friendly neighbors with young children. We enjoy walking our dog, Aru, around the neighborhood and around town, and we always take extra dog treats along for the neighborhood children to feed him. We would love to share walks and outdoor time with your child. Our yard has a picket fence that Tim installed to give our dog ample play space, and Beth plants and tends a vegetable garden, which supplies numerous fresh veggies for dinner. The garage serves as Tim’s workshop, where he works on his classic 1978 Mustang. Our home is in a small community, but we are close enough to a larger town to take family trips to the local college football stadium to watch games.
Our Extended Family
Beth’s parents love to go to college football games with us. We also frequently get together with Beth’s older sister and visit with our niece and nephews. Beth’s parents always move south for the winter, so we have our big family Christmas gathering on Thanksgiving weekend, before they take off. On Christmas morning, we make pancakes and open presents from each other. We hope to start our own family traditions with our child. We also have a book for the Christmas season we would love to share with our child since a major theme is how we are all adopted into God's forever family.
Tim is very close with his brother and also has a close friend and father figure. They both live in a nearby town, and we often hang out, seeing each other at least once a week.
We are also involved with our church family. Tim has assisted in some community service projects with the church, and Beth has started volunteering in the nursery in order to have more experience with infants and toddlers. We can’t wait to bring your little one into the loving family of friends we have found at our church.
What Led Us To Adoption
As we settle into our home and our life together, we feel the desire to share ourselves with a child. We feel adoption is the best way to expand our little family and share our love and outlook on life that make it so enjoyable for us. Beth can’t wait to read stories and plant flowers together with your child, showing him or her how the world can be a beautiful, peaceful place. Tim is excited to share his love of games and building things, helping your child have fun and learn at the same time.

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
