Find a Family - Waiting to Adopt

Stephan

Stephan

I have wanted to be a mother for as long as I can remember. After much thought I decided to start my family as a single parent. This journey has taught me that you do not have to give birth to a child to be a parent. I may be single, but I will not be raising your child alone. The entire family is extremely excited about the opportunity to have a new child to love and spoil.

Lauren and Graham

Lauren and Graham

We’re a young couple in our early 30’s excited to become parents. We appreciate the courage and love it takes to choose an adoptive family for your baby. As high school sweethearts, we've grown into the perfect team of active, devoted, and fun-loving best friends. We’ve been each other’s greatest cheerleader, supporting each other's unique traits and interests, and knew from early on that we wanted to grow our family through adoption. We can’t wait to shower your baby with love, laughter and encouragement.

Shauna and Craig

We are Shauna and Craig, both in our mid-thirties, and although we have never met, we think you are wonderful! We promise that any child adopted by us will grow up surrounded by unconditional love and a ton of laughter. We look forward to getting to know you, and hope that this letter gives you an idea of who we are and the parents that we hope to be.

Sara and Ryan

We have a very loving relationship and we share a common core of values. A child that joins our family will grow up in a home filled with love, laughter, and encouragement.

We sincerely hope that our home is the one you will choose.

We are praying for you on this journey!

Gretchen and Mark

Gretchen and Mark

We both love children and can't wait to be parents. We have known for a few years that Gretchen would not be able to carry a pregnancy, so we had always planned to build our family through adoption. If you choose us, we promise that your courage, strength, and sacrifice will never be forgotten. Our families have taught us to be there for each other. We want to be there for you, too!

Kelli and Jeff

Kelli and Jeff

If you're thinking of an open adoption, we are open to visits, phone calls, pictures or letters. We wish you the best and hope you find the right family for your child.

Gia and Joe

Gia and Joe

Adoption has always been in our plan; we knew that having a child ourselves was going to be challenging, and our treatment options were limited. We're a young couple (33 and 35) who have known each other for 11 years. We share similar values and our personalities fit together perfectly. We promise to give your child a safe and stable life and our unconditional love. We can't wait to meet you.

Thank you for reading about us! We are RJ, Jeff and Thea (age 4). Even before we got married in 2015, we both knew we wanted to become dads and start a family and adoption was always our plan. RJ’s mom, Dorothy, was very influential in our decision to pursue an open adoption. She placed a child for adoption. This personal adoption experience has made us strong believers in open adoption. We have so much to offer as parents and would be honored to have the opportunity to show you. Thank you again for considering us. We look forward to meeting you!

My name is Megan and for the last ten years I have thought about motherhood and envisioned how I would create a family. There has never been a doubt in my mind that adoption is the path for me. If you decide to place your child for adoption, and choose me, I promise to nurture his or her relationship with God, provide unconditional love, surround him or her with a large circle of family and friends, support his or her dreams and ambitions, and to honor you and share your story.

As an expectant mother, we are sure you are reading this and thinking about making one of the most important decisions of your life. You are probably reading this because you are looking for open, loving and trustworthy adoptive parents to raise your baby. We are writing this to you because we want to give your baby a home to grow up in surrounded by people that love him or her. In 2018, we adopted a beautiful baby boy named Dominic. He is the inspiration that keeps us going and adoption is something we openly embrace and wish to pursue again.
