dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
We want to start off by saying thank you. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to share with you only the beginning of what kind of parents we can be. Thank you for being such a strong and powerful woman who knows what she wants, no matter how hard that decision is. Thank you for doing what you believe is right for your baby, no matter how hard it can be.
We appreciate all you are doing and know this is likely one of the hardest decisions you will ever make in your life as this is a difficult process. Although we can never truly feel what you are going through, we understand the selfless decision you are making. Just know we are here to support you every step of the way. We are in this together! Connecting with us creates a new support system we both need and is one that others will never understand. This is a pathway we are both choosing for your baby, and it will create a special bond that will keep us connected for life. We hope this process is as painless as it can be for you, and just believe we will achieve all of your hopes and dreams for your baby. Thank you for considering us!
We tend to have similar interests and personalities. We like to eat the same foods, enjoying homemade cookies, bread, pizza, chicken cutlet sandwiches, and basically anything that includes cheese so we can sneak some to the dog. We take interest in each other's careers and try to make each other's lives run as seamlessly as possible during the workweek by helping out wherever we can. Our daily routine after the workday is over includes exercising together in our home gym and taking the dog for a walk, followed up by cooking dinner and preparing lunches for the following day. Our weekends include Starbucks trips with the dog followed by rest and relaxation around the house. During the summer months, we try to include the occasional trip to the golf course together.
Our Home & Pets
Our home was built in a rural area surrounded by friendly neighbors and lots of old farmland. We have a large, open backyard with lots of space for our dog, Nala, to run around as well as wildlife visitors passing through. We live in close proximity to our public schools, with Toni being a math teacher at our local high school. We live close enough to spend our days at the beach in the summer and go apple picking and pumpkin picking in the fall. The small village located down the street from us has a wonderful fall festival every year that gives us the opportunity to support local mom and pop stores and is something we enjoy doing together year after year.
Our Extended Family
Our extended families are similar in so many ways. We each grew up with siblings, one family being all boys and the other all girls. We have many cousins, aunts, and uncles, with large family gatherings for every holiday. Both of us have Italian ancestry and heritage, leaving Sunday dinners to be filled with all-you-can-eat pasta and homemade sauce. Over the last few years, we created a new tradition and took on the challenge of hosting Christmas. This allows both of our extended families to come together under one roof to celebrate.
We both have a close-knit family and remain close to our siblings. We see each other as often as we can, and when distance doesn’t allow us to do so, there’s always FaceTime! We enjoy golfing together, vacationing together, and just gathering together at our childhood homes, where we can relax and spend some quality time together.
What Led Us To Adoption
Adoption is a pathway we have chosen together to grow our family into what it is meant to be. We are excited to make a connection with an expectant mother and go through this journey together, creating a beautiful life for this amazing baby being brought into this world already loved by so many. All of our friends and family support our decision to adopt, and they are just as eager to be in this little baby’s life as we are.

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!
