Scott & Angela
are hopeful adoptive parents from Maryland waiting to adopt a baby.
If you are pregnant and considering placing your child for adoption, please read the following Dear Birthmother Letter.
We respect you for the unselfish choice you have made concerning your future and that of your baby. Certainly, we cannot pretend to know how you are feeling at this moment, but we promise that your child will always find love, warmth, laughter, and protection with us. You will always be in our hearts and prayers as the generous bearer of our most precious gift. Always know your child will be treasured, cherished, and grow up surrounded by love.
We have been together for over thirteen years and married for nine. Our home is filled with lots of love and happiness (not to mention silliness, music, laughter, and fun.) Scott is an Electrical Engineer with a Master's Degree and Angela is a Contracts Manager with a Bachelor's Degree. We have a strong marriage and enjoy going to the park, swimming in the pool, playing with our dog, spending time with our son and working on house projects. We frequently go to the local theater, Ravens and Capitals games, and the Renaissance Festival. We take regular vacations to places such as the Eastern Shore, the Caribbean and camping in Gettysburg, PA. With our family still in Florida we also travel there to enjoy family time and the beaches.
We live in a four bedroom home with a fenced-in back yard in a county with one of the best school districts in our state. We picked this area with the plan for children in our future. Our neighborhood is young and so are the families that live here. Of the 14 houses on our cul-de-sac, all but one has children that range from infants to teenagers. We have an awesome sledding hill for the winter and an in-ground pool for summer fun. We enjoy fun activities and want to share the joys of life with our children. We believe we have a lot to offer that special child. We are both firm believers that happy, successful children are those that have involved parents. We put our children first and provide an atmosphere of trust, love and support. We are extremely involved with our son and want to share these special family times with your baby. We were blessed by Adoption in January 2011 and love being parents. We are looking forward to having our family grow again through adoption!
Angela works from home two days a week in order to spend more time with our son and weekends are family time. We plan on keeping this routine with the addition of another child. Our weekends are filled with running errands, a few house chores, church and fun activities like going to the park to explore, riding a carousel, swimming in the pool, reading books, or going on a picnic. During the summer we go to the county fair, company picnics, camping, or hiking. In the fall and winter we watch the Raven’s games, go to the zoo or have lunch with friends. Ryan is our world and we are so grateful that the blessing of adoption has brought him into our lives. We can’t wait to share our love with your baby. We will encourage our children to develop their own talents and will provide opportunities for them to participate in activities that interest them. We want our children to be well rounded and involved in a variety of activities. Schooling is important to us, so we will teach them the importance of hard work and education. We will also show them how to be kind, thoughtful, and helpful to others.
Our current family is possible because of Ryan’s courageous birthparents. Our children will know they were adopted from their birth. We will tell them often of the beautiful and special way they were brought into our home. You will always be spoken of with great honor and respect. Our child will know how much you love them and that your decision was made out of complete love.
We have written this letter to let you know about us and our sincere desire to adopt another child. We hope that this letter has helped you to get to know us and has piqued an interest in knowing us better. We hope that you will consider us in your selection process. We would like to meet with you so that we can better know each other and determine if our situations are a good fit.

so that we can answer additional questions.
Hoping to hear from you soon,
Angela & Scott
An Introduction from Happy
Hi! My name is Happy and I’d like to introduce my adoptive parents, Angela and Scott. They adopted me in July of 2004 when I was just eight weeks old. They are great! Mom wakes me up every morning with a back rub and Dad plays fetch with me every day when he comes home from work. They’ve taught me to recognize human words such as ball, rope, bed, treat and walk.
I love going for walks. We live in a great neighborhood with lots of kids. We have a big hill in our backyard that is great for sledding, a pool with really cool lights, and a fire pit for making S'mores! We go camping yearly and often go on Halloween weekend with our cousins. We carve pumpkins, walk the haunted trail, and give candy out to the trick-or-treaters. At Christmas time we go to see Dad’s family and on Christmas Eve spend the evening with the entire family (its huge!). Grandpa starts the evening off with reading “The Night Before Christmas” to all the children. It’s a great family tradition.
During the summer, Mom and Dad host a really fun Luau themed party. They decorate the deck with leis, coconuts, and pineapples and ask everyone to bring a Hawaiian dish. This past year Dad made a Tiki bar to serve drinks from poolside and it was huge hit!
In January of 2011, our family was blessed by adoption when my brother Ryan joined our family. I love licking him, eating the food he drops on the floor and now he’s rolling the ball for me to fetch. We are doing fun things as a family like going to the beach, taking walks in the park, we saw fire trucks at the Fire Department open house and went pumpkin pickin’ at Halloween. Discovering the world through a child’s eye is so exciting. Mom and Dad are so happy being parents. They’ve often said they didn’t know how good life was until they became parents. Now they want to share our great life and love with another child and provide us with a sibling. They want Ryan to have a brother or sister with whom he can grow up with and share memories.
They each wrote a little about each other and Ryan, and I'd love to share that with you below:
Angela, the Adoptive Mother and Scott, the Adoptive Father
About Angela, Written by Scott
Angela was born in Maryland and has lived there the majority of her life. Her parents died when she was young and she was raised by her grandmother. She has a brother and a sister, five cousins, and three nephews. We see her family frequently for birthdays, family get-togethers, and holiday parties. She has always loved children and started babysitting at the age of ten. By the age of 12 she had a thriving babysitting business and was sought out by the entire community for her services. She attended a private parochial school through eighth grade where she participated in her church choir and took piano lessons. She also participated in Girl Scouts and cheerleading making a lot of friends that she still speaks with today. When she graduated high school she went to work for the Government full time while attending the local community college part time, where she obtained an Associate’s Degree in Business. She continued her education in the evenings at the University of Maryland University College, graduating in 1999 Cum Laude in Business Management while working full time.
Angela is a great mom! She is loving, patient, and has a great sense of humor. She is very outgoing and loves to entertain. Our children will learn the social skills from her that they will need to be happy and successful in life. She is also very sentimental and keeps a scrapbook/photo album of everything we do including vacations, sporting events, shows, and concerts. She loves pictures and takes the camera everywhere we go. She enjoys the outdoors and going for walks either around the neighborhood or on hiking trails. When she was a child, her great aunt would come for visits and they would walk the two miles to the Baskin Robbins store to get ice cream (this started when she was 3). She would go to the beach each year with her grandmother, aunt, and cousin. She and her cousin would walk the beach for hours and then sleep outside on the balcony listening to the waves crash and wake up to the beautiful sunrise.
Angela met a wonderful group of women in a support group for infertility and wanted to give back to help others so she hosts a monthly adoption support group and volunteers for an adoption organization.
About Scott, Written by Angela
Scott was born in North Carolina and moved to Florida when he was 10. His father is a Bio-Chemist that worked for the Environmental Protection Agency until he retired in 2003. His father is one of 11 siblings, which equates to a huge family at the holidays. His mother is a Bank Manager who worked for Am South Bank until she retired in 2008.
Growing up in Florida Scott became an excellent swimmer, participated in Boy Scouts, baseball, and became a Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do. For fun he went to the beach, rode bikes, played backyard football, racquetball, and went hunting and fishing. He helped his grandfather build his house and his father build a workshop and barn. During his high school years he focused on his schoolwork and was an avid player of strategy, role playing, and computer games. He had four best friends whom he stills stays in contact with today. He attended Auburn University and earned his Bachelor's Degree in Electrical Engineering. After college he took a job with the Government and was fortunate enough to live in Japan for a time. He also attended Johns Hopkins University and earned his Master's Degree in Electrical Engineering. About this time, he met me through co-workers. He was very shy and quiet and barely spoke a word to me the entire evening, but he listened intently to my discussions. He is a very good listener! He spent the next three weeks trying to get my number. We stayed up until 3 a.m. talking on our first date and have been together ever since! We were married overlooking the beach in St. Lucia. The day was so special, one we will treasure forever.
Scott has a great sense of humor and continues to make me laugh every day. We share a love of music and outdoor activities. In addition to designing and building our deck and shed, he designed the flower beds around our home and together we’ve planted numerous trees and flowers. Scott is a great hands-on dad and is looking forward to teaching his children these skills just as his dad taught him. He’s already planning to teach our children to swim, play sports, camp, be independent and help them with their homework, especially math and science.
Ryan, the Big Brother
Written by Happy
Ryan came home on a snowy night in January 2011. Mom and Dad had been gone for two nights taking care of him at the hospital. At first I didn’t pay him much attention; I just missed mom and dad. After a few days I realized he was here to stay. They doted over him getting up with him all hours of the night. He got fed way more than I do. At first his crying made me nervous but I got used to it soon enough. When Ryan was four months old I walked past him to get a toy and he belly laughed at me. I heard mom say this was his first laugh. Since then, he laughs all the time. Mom says he is the happiest baby she has ever seen. Every day they read to him, teach him to talk and show him how things work. He goes to daycare part time where they are teaching him sign language, how to dance and paint, and to play nicely with the other kids. He is sensitive and has a sweet heart. I heard Mom say he even tries to comfort other babies at daycare when they cry. He is going to make a great big brother, playmate and friend!
