This is a tremendously courageous and selfless gesture of love and courage in choosing to have your baby and wanting to give him or her the best opportunities in life.

We were introduced through a mutual friend. After dating for five years, we were married in 2009. Wes works as a merchandise unloader at a major retailer. He works with a small group of employees and gets along great with everyone. Jen works as a private duty pediatric registered nurse. She is currently working with a six-year-old boy and attends school with him, helping him with his disabilities. Jen also volunteers in the church nursery every Sunday morning and enjoys getting to play with the babies!
We love spending time together just relaxing, hanging out with friends, attending sporting events, or going out for the evening on dates. Our favorite vacation spot is Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. While on vacation, we try to look for fun activities to try, such a zip lining! In his spare time, Wes loves to watch football and his favorite team is the Miami Dolphins. He also enjoys hiking, playing with our dog, Daisy, and relaxing at home and watching movies. Music is a big part of Wes’s life; he loves rock bands of the 80s. His favorite group is KISS. Jen enjoys watching hockey and football. She also loves spending time with Daisy, especially taking her for walks at the local elementary school. We look forward to giving a child the opportunity to play sports or join organizations around our community.
Our Home & Pets
Our home is a split-entry, two-story house on a half-acre lot. It has three bedrooms, a finished basement, and an attached garage. We have a swimming pool in our backyard, which is partially surrounded by a large deck and has a locked gate. Our neighborhood is a quiet, middle-class community. Most of our neighbors are friendly and know one another and help each other out, if needed. We are a five-minute drive from shopping, restaurants, and the hospital, and within walking distance of the elementary school.
We have one cat and one dog. Our cat, Baby, is a short-haired domestic cat. She is thirteen years old and remains playful at times. Our dog, Daisy, is a very friendly and playful Maltese. Daisy is six years old and calm and friendly with children of all ages. We often have our parents watch the pets if we know we will be gone for more than four hours. Our friends like to tease us about having a babysitter for our pets.
Our Extended Family
Wes is an only child and his parents remain happily married. Wes’s parents live about ten minutes away and visit often. They come to our house and watch the pets when we go to dinner or out shopping once every few weeks. He also has many cousins he keeps in touch with throughout the year.
Jen has one younger sister and two older brothers. Her parents have been divorced for many years. She is very close with all her siblings, especially her sister, and has eight nieces and nephews! Jen talks with her mother daily and visits often. All of her family lives relatively close; the furthest one is a thirty-minute drive away. Her whole family gathers for picnics or has dinner together often. During holidays, we like to enjoy time together as a couple in the mornings, and then spend the afternoon and evening at one of our families’ homes. Many times, Jen’s family plans get-togethers on the weekend before or after the holiday as well.
What Led Us To Adoption
After getting married in October of 2009, we felt excited to start a family. About two years of trying went by with no luck, so we decided to consult a fertility specialist. We were given fertility medications for the next three cycles with no results. We then went through three rounds of artificial insemination with medications, including injections. After these measures did not work, we decided as a couple that we did not want to try in-vitro fertilization. We decided God had other plans for our family! Both of us know people that have adopted, so we have seen the joy adoption can bring. We decided adoption was the right path for us and are lucky to have so much support from our family and friends.

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
