dear expectant mother
If you are looking at our profile right now, you certainly have been facing some hard decisions that surely come with a heavy heart. Just know we are very proud of you, even if you don’t choose us. Please understand we do not take this decision lightly, and we want to thank you for your time spent to even consider us as potential parents for your baby. Please know we would be giving your child a world of abundant resources, a home where there is a love for the outdoors and a passion for working hard, and a family that loves to laugh.
Although our journey to being parents has been a complicated one, we are not yet ready to give up on having a family. We would love to give your baby what we grew up with: values, a work strong ethic, memorable family traditions, and guidance from our families.
Todd is a seed corn sales representative for a local agricultural business, while Jessica is a social worker for a long-term care community for senior citizens. We both enjoy our respective lines of work as we both have the opportunity to work with people. We have been married for thirteen years and have lived in the same community since we’ve been married. We have both a fifth wheel camper and boat, and in the summertime, we love to use them. We camp quite a bit with Todd’s side of the family, and he has taught most of our nieces and nephews how to waterski. Our summer weekends include lots of good food, sunscreen, s’mores, and lifelong memories.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a two-bedroom ranch-style home with a large yard and a garden in a family-friendly neighborhood. We spend a lot of time in our garden, which has a variety of vegetables and flowers. Todd is a big help in the garden with his agricultural expertise, and Jess cans salsa, jelly, and pesto for the entire year. Our home is four blocks from an elementary school, playground, and baseball fields. There is a great two-mile walking path, which is the perfect place to push a stroller. We have three cats: Leo, Husker, and Harriett. We love to cook, entertain, and host. We would love for our home to be the neighborhood hangout as our child makes friends and gets older.
Our Extended Family
We have a large extended family, with nieces and nephews who range from three years old to 30. We have attended many of their ball games, confirmations, birthday parties, and graduations over the years. Your child would be welcomed into the family with more love and support than could ever be imagined.
Our family has anticipated us having children for quite some time now, but it has not been a part of God’s plan for this to happen biologically. When we told our families about our decision to adopt, they were overwhelmed with emotion. They are excited and are encouraging us throughout this process. They are praying not only for us but also you and your baby.
What Led Us To Adoption
We know a family that has recently adopted, and we have witnessed firsthand how much this child has enriched all their lives. After much consideration, we decided this was the next step for us to grow our family and to pass on our love for each other by sharing it with a child. We want to continue our family legacy and all we have to offer. We are loving, adventurous, fun people who would love nothing more than to look through the eyes of a child as we grow our family.

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
