dear expectant mother
Thank you so much for taking the time to read about our family. Our hearts cannot fathom the decision you are facing right now. We continually say how much we admire your selflessness and courage for the choice you are considering. We want you to know we have been praying for you. We have been praying you have clarity and peace in this pregnancy and as you make a decision for your growing baby.
We want you to know we have nothing but love to give to you and your baby. Our family motto is “Go low (practice humility), go love (love others), and go lead (be role models to others). This is what we would be welcoming your child into. We love being parents. We love reading books, being silly, and playing. We travel with our families and love to make memories together in different parts of the world. We will support your child in whatever talents and gifts they may have, and we will be role models for a loving and kind marriage. Our home is a safe place where family and friends are welcome.
Most importantly, we will raise your baby to know how much they are loved, not only by us, but by God, our families, our friends, and our church community. We are humbled by your consideration and will continue to pray for you as you make your decision.
We’re Travis and Ally, and we can’t wait to welcome another little one into our home! We got married almost four years ago and have one son, Jackson, who is now almost one and a half. Travis works with students at a university and works with students. Ally is a nurse and works three days a week in a cancer clinic. We both really enjoy our jobs. As a couple, we are easygoing and really enjoy each other’s company. We spend a lot of time together. We try to go on lots of family walks, and we have family dinners almost every night of the week. Travis is loyal and a great listener. He is also a great dad. Ally is kindhearted and loves to take care of our home and family. We think we make a pretty great team!
Our Home & Pets
We live in beautiful West Michigan, a half hour from one of the Great Lakes. Our home is an old home with lots of charm. All three bedrooms are upstairs so we can be close to the kids. Our favorite room is the playroom, where the morning sun comes in the two big windows. Our backyard is big and has a swing. It has lots of room to run around and play. We live on a dead end street, which limits traffic, and we are thankful for a small, safe neighborhood because we go on many family walks. Our street is right next to a big park with play structures, a pond, and a splash pad that is so fun to walk to in the summer.
Our Extended Family
Our family is such an important part of who we are. Ally’s side of the family lives about two hours away, but that doesn’t stop us from seeing them frequently. We utilize FaceTime at least a couple times a week, and Ally’s mom and dad will read stories through FaceTime to our son Jackson. We have a tradition of an annual gingerbread house-making competition, and the rest of our extended family votes on that year’s winner. We are equally as close to Travis’s family, and his mom babysits for us once a week. They live even closer to Lake Michigan, so in the summer, we spend many days at the beach with them.
Both of us have a couple siblings, and they are the best aunts and uncles. Our families are faith-filled and incredibly supportive. When they heard we wanted to adopt, they were thrilled! They have prayed for and encouraged us as we wait for the arrival of the newest little one. They are so excited to extend their love to another member of our family.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have seen how beautiful adoption is through many families in our church. When we got married, we both said we would like to adopt someday. We did not know when would be the “right” time, but we had faith it would be a part of our journey at some point. During Ally’s pregnancy with Jackson, she experienced an injury to her hips that would require lots of time rehabilitating after delivery. We have been advised to wait before having more biological children. We have a strong faith in God and follow Him with the decisions we make in life. We feel this was God’s timing to begin our adoption journey, and we could not be more excited!

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
