Baby Boy Braylon Cass Jay
When Travis & Jessa's son's birthmother first contacted Angel, she fell in love with their profile, but was prepared to speak with the family just then. Travis and Jessa trusted Angel to walk with her through the process. Thankfully, they did not have to wait long to meet her OR their son! Braylon was born January 30, 2018, and met his adoptive parents and big brother just days later. Braylon's middle name, Cass, is in honor of his strong and loving birthmother that both Travis and Jessa were able to meet just before discharge. Angel is forever thankful for the women that have the strength to create an adoption plan and the loving families that open their hearts to adoption!
Baby Girl Arabella Joy
For every successful adoption, there is a loving birthmother that made the courageous choice to contact Angel. Jenny and Jesse's daughter's birthmom contacted Angel just weeks before her due date, with the support of her sister. She felt an instant connection with Jenny and Jesse's profile. They started with a phone conversation one weekend and continued with text messages throughout the week. Jenny and Jesse were able to be in the delivery room when their daughter, Arabella (Bell) Joy, was born on January 24, 2018. Jenny, Jesse, and Bell spent their first days together with Bell's birthmother before introducing Bell to her big sister, who was also adopted! What a wonderful family story Jenny and Jesse have to share, to adopt not only once, but twice!
Baby Girl Isabella June
Angela and Erik became first-time parents on January 20, 2018, when Isabella June was born! Angela and Erik first connected with their daughter's birthmother in November 2017, and made the cross-country trip just months later for Isabella's entrance into the world. Congratulations to this new family of three!
Baby Boy Logan
After a successful first adoption with their daughter, Donna and Dawn returned to Angel to grow their family again. Through a few failed connections, they remained faithful and positive, and we are so thankful they did! In a quick turn of events, Donna and Dawn connected with their son's birthmother on a Friday afternoon and by the following Sunday, January 7, 2018, their baby boy Logan was born. They were quick to head to Florida to meet their son and embrace his birthmother. They started the weekend without a son and ended the weekend as a family of four! Angel is sending warm wishes and happy thoughts to these two mommies and Angel's newest big sister!
Baby Boy James Daniel
With no time to spare, Emily and Peter hopped on a plane from Missouri to California one Sunday afternoon to meet their newest addition, James Daniel! James was born January 6, 2018, and met Emily and Peter just days later. Emily and Peter adopted their older son from Angel three years ago, so they were prepared for the last-minute decision making that adoption sometimes requires. We want to send the biggest thank you to James' birthmom for choosing adoption and a huge congratulations to Emily and Peter for growing their family through adoption a second time!
Baby Girl Emma
After a quick connection with their birthmother, Maria and Pierre welcomed their sweet baby girl, Emma, on January 5, 2018! They feel blessed to have her in their life. Congratulations to Pierre and Maria — we know that 2018 will be a magical year for your new family!
Baby Girl Taylor Nevaeh
No strangers to adoption, Jacob and Sulah returned to Angel for a second adoption four years after they adopted their daughter. Fully prepared for the wait time and the potential ups and downs, they were connected with their daughter's birthmother and adopted in 12 months! Sulah, Jacob, and their daughter's birthmother spent the latter part of 2017 getting to know each other. They were even able to visit her in early November and spend time with her and her kids. Sulah and Taylor's birthmother were able to spend ample time together the day Taylor was born, savoring those final moments together. Taylor Nevaeh was born December 29, 2017, Angel's last baby born in 2017! All of our best wishes to this new family of four as they head into 2018!
Baby Girl Hannah Isabelle
We truly believe that what's meant to be will always find a way. Shortly after their time with Angel had ended, an expectant mother contacted us fully in love with Michelle and David's profile that she had received when she originally contacted us months prior. Angel reached out to Michelle and David to explain the unique situation, and they were completely on board with building a relationship and seeing where this journey took them. Between a move, updating their home study, and getting to know their daughter's birthmother, it was a busy fall for Michelle and David! Sweet Hannah Isabelle was the most wonderful Christmas gift for Michelle and David, born December 22, 2017. We are grateful that Michelle and David remained so open-minded and to Hannah's birthmother for giving them the most special gift of all!
Baby Girl Vivian
Over a very quick month, Adrienne and Chadd built a relationship with their daughter's birthmother and welcomed their daughter, Vivian, into the world on December 22, 2017. Christmas 2017 will be one that Chadd and Adrienne will forever remember as the Christmas they grew to be a family of three, thanks to Vivian's strong and courageous birthmother.
Baby Boy Wesley Philip
Aubrey and Geoff were prepared for the long wait that adoption sometimes entails, but to their surprise, they found themselves working with an expectant mother after only six months. Their son's birthmother had originally contacted Angel in October, unsure of her adoption plan, and ultimately decided adoption was not right for her. Only a few weeks later, she contacted Angel to let us know she was prepared to move forward and loved Aubrey and Geoff's profile. Geoff was deployed at the time, so Aubrey spent a handful of weeks communicating with their son's birthmother and relaying the relationship back to him. Wesley Philip was born December 19, 2017, and met his adoptive mom just days later! It was a quick and emotional relationship, but what a wonderful time for Aubrey, Geoff, Wesley, and Wesley's birthmother!
