dear expectant mother

Thank you for considering us as adoptive parents for your child. Choosing an adoption plan is a very brave, loving path. In spite of all the mystery and uncertainty, taking that step into the unknown is thrilling, breathtaking, and packed full of hope.

In our family history is a mysterious woman who also dreamed of a better life for her child: Tim’s great-great grandfather was dropped off at an orphanage as a baby, and with no information, the orphanage made up a surname for him. That surname is our family name today. It is a testament to a woman’s efforts to send her child blindly into a new life, trusting her child will have the love and opportunity he deserved. We hope you will choose us to provide your child with all the love and opportunity we have to offer, but unlike Tim's great-grandfather, we would be happy for your child to know where he or she came from, to know who you are and his or her family history, if that is your wish also.

If you choose us as adoptive parents, we hope to be able to bring some peace to your heart with our assurances that your child will be surrounded with love and care as we pour out the overflow of our hearts.

About Us

Beth teaches junior high English, and Tim does home repairs and remodeling. On an average evening, we 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, and we eagerly look forward to sharing our love of reading with your child. Around home, Beth loves to dig in the dirt. Tim recently built a greenhouse shed from scratch, and Beth is now potting plants and planting seeds in any weather! We both love home remodeling, too. We have done roofing, painting, and a lot of cleaning together, but Tim is the gifted handyman who has made many improvements around our own house.

Our Home & Pets

We live in a newer neighborhood with friendly neighbors who have young children, and our home is just a few blocks away from the school. We enjoy walking our dog, Aru, around the neighborhood and around town, and we always take extra dog treats along for when the nearby children want to come pet 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 recently started her first vegetable garden and supplied numerous fresh veggies for dinner. 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 and host us whenever possible. We also frequently interact with Beth’s older sister and get to 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 their vacation. Everyone loves watching the kids open presents, and we envision your child included in the fun. Later, on Christmas morning, we make pancakes and open presents from each other. We hope to start our own family traditions for the holidays with your child, like having Christmas pancakes and presents together. We also have a book with daily readings for the Christmas season that we would love to share with your child, since a major theme is how we are all adopted into God's forever family.

Tim is very close with his brother, Chad, and also has a close friend and father figure, Mike. Chad and Mike both live in a nearby town and we often hang out, seeing each other at least once a week.

We are also involved in 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 that we have found at our church.

What Led Us To Adoption

As we settle into our home and our life together, we find the need to share ourselves with a child. We feel adoption is the best way to expand our little family and share the love, teachings, and perspectives that make us enjoy life. Beth wants to read stories and plant flowers together with your child, showing how the world can be a beautiful, peaceful place; Tim wants to play cards and board games and build things together, helping your child have fun and love learning. If you choose us as adoptive parents, we hope to be able to envelop your little one with all the love we have to share.

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!
