dear expectant mother
Thank you for considering us as adoptive parents for your child. Considering an adoption plan is a very brave, loving path. The road of adoption is marked with many uncertainties, and we can at least relate to that aspect of it. We know we would be loving, supportive parents, but, having never had children of our own, there is still so much uncertainty over what this life-changing decision holds in store. Yet, in spite of all the mystery and uncertainty, taking that step into the unknown is thrilling, breath-taking, and packed full of hope. We are ready to hold on to this forward movement and dedicate our full lives to adopting a child.
If you choose us as adoptive parents, we hope to be worthy of your child, so that you, too, will feel that thrill and hope for your child. As you decide to step forward on this road, and as we take our step, too, we hope you meet all the uncertainty ahead with peace in your heart.
Some things we know for certain: we believe strongly in education and would raise your child to value lifelong learning. We would teach compassion, forgiveness, and selflessness by modeling those qualities. We would do our best to balance stability and expectations with fun and adventure. If you choose us, we also know that we would emphasize to your child from an early age how selfless you are in choosing an adoption plan that brought him or her to us so that we could truly learn how to love unconditionally.
Beth teaches junior high English, and Tim does home repairs and remodeling. On an average evening, we’re your typical homebodies, curling up on the couch to watch TV after dinner. We tend to be quiet, reserved, and a bit socially awkward. But we love the outdoors and have an adventurous side. In the spring and summer, we love to travel to places with historical connections or go camping, hiking, and canoeing. When we travel to faraway places or even just locally, we either read to each other in the car or listen to audiobooks together. Around home, Beth loves to dig in the dirt, planting flowers and pulling weeds. Tim usually pitches in a summer softball league. Indoors, we both love home remodeling, and that’s actually how we became a couple: we worked on several volunteer projects together. We have done roofing, painting, and a lot of cleaning together.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a newer neighborhood with friendly neighbors who have young children. 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. Our yard has a picket fence that Tim installed to give our dog ample play area, and yet allow us to visit with our neighbors who love to give Aru dog biscuits. Beth recently started her first vegetable garden and supplied numerous fresh veggies for dinner. Our home is in a small community. Yet, we are close enough to take family trips to the local college football stadium to watch games.
Our Extended Family
Beth’s parents both come from farming family backgrounds. Beth is a middle child with two sisters. Her older sister’s family lives close to Beth’s parents’ house. So, whenever we visit Beth’s parents, we frequently interact with our niece and nephews. Beth’s parents are snowbirds, moving south for the winter, so we have our big family Christmas gathering on Thanksgiving weekend before they drive south. When the actual Christmas holiday rolls around, we have a quiet Christmas making pancakes. Thanksgiving is a big family time, though, as we gather with Beth’s extended family on her mother’s side: Beth’s 92-year-old grandma, her aunt and uncle, and her cousins’ families. In the summer, Beth also catches up with extended family on her father’s side because they are involved in the day camp where Beth volunteers.
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. Once a year, we get together with Tim’s aunts, uncles, and cousins at a family reunion.
What Led Us To Adoption
When we got married, we knew that having biological children might not be an option for us. Tim’s parents both passed away due to hereditary illnesses while we were still dating. While Tim himself is healthy, we worried about what genes might pass along to biological children. As we have settled into our life together and into our home, we feel that adoption is the best way to expand our little family. 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!Return to Waiting Families
