dear expectant mother
To a Loving Mother:
We continually say how much we admire your courage for the choice you are considering. Though we cannot imagine the decision you face, we are humbled by your consideration of our family in the adoption of your child. We want you to know we have been praying for you, that you may have clarity and peace, and we will do everything we can to honor and support you.
We want you to know we have nothing but love to give to you and your baby. Any love we have to share comes from God, and our hope is to welcome your child into our home so they may know that adoring love.
We cannot wait to watch this baby grow: to learn to talk, walk, read, and play. We can’t wait for them to join in on the dance parties, puzzle making, and outdoor adventures. We will support your child in whatever talents and gifts they may have. We will try our best to raise them up to be strong and kind and to honor the courage of their birthmother. We promise we will be role models for a loving and kind marriage, providing guidance and stability. Most importantly, we promise we will raise your baby to know how much they are loved, not only by us but by God, our families, and our friends.
Thanks for letting us show you a little snippet of our family. We cannot wait to talk with you more.
Travis, Ally, Jackson & Clara

We’re Travis and Ally! We met in college, fell in love, and continue to be head over heels. We got married five and a half years ago and currently have two kids, Jackson and Clara. Travis works as an account coordinator, and Ally is a nurse and is working to become a nurse practitioner. As a couple, we are easygoing and really enjoy each other’s company, and our faith is the most important part of who we are! We try to go on lots of family walks, prioritize family dinners every night of the week, do family dance parties, and play together. Travis is a loyal friend, is a great listener and leader, and makes oven-popped popcorn several nights of the week. Ally is kindhearted and loves to take care of our home and family. We truly are best friends and wouldn’t have it any other way.
We live in West Michigan, a half hour from one of the Great Lakes. Our home is a three-bedroom, two-bath house on a quiet street with great neighbors. Our home has an open layout, so we can always hear and keep an eye on the kids when they are playing. We have a large, fenced-in backyard and live within walking distance to a big park with play structures, a splash pad, and sledding hills. Our home is only a couple blocks from one of the elementary schools in an amazing school district. We try to keep our home inviting and hospitable, usually full of baked bread and coffee, so others feel welcome and loved when they step in the door.
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 often FaceTIme and get to see Ally’s parents one to two times per month. Travis’s family lives less than an hour away, and his mom and dad babysit for us once a week. Both of our sets of parents are adoring grandparents and are very involved in the kids’ lives. We love to travel with our families and feel blessed we get to go on trips with our parents and extended family.
We both 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
When we got married, we both said we would like to adopt someday. After we had our first biological child, we excitedly proceeded with the adoption process. While we were waiting for an expectant mother to match with us, we unexpectedly found out we were pregnant with our second! While that was not in our plan, we know God’s timing works out far better than ours, and now we are so excited to welcome another little one to our family through adoption. The baby will have two adoring older siblings, that is for sure.

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!
