Adoption Video: Allen and Angelina from Louisiana

Posted by Lifetime Adoption on October 22, 2015

Adoption has always been close to Allen and Angelina’s hearts, but within the past few years that desire has gotten to be undeniable.  Their lives are filled with awesome adventures, spectacular friends and family, and abounding love.  They can’t wait for a child to be at the center of it all!

Allen is a second grade teacher who enjoys fishing, wake boarding, and grilling. Angelina works for a retirement home as a social worker and she likes biking, hiking, and creating crafts. They’re proud Louisianans and share, “Louisiana has beautiful lakes and rivers for fishing, skiing, wake boarding, and tubing; we love the water!  The people here are friendly and welcoming.  We believe some of the best food in the entire world comes from the South.  Boiled crawfish, fried and boiled shrimp, gumbo, jambalaya, and po’boys are some of our favorites, just to name a few!”

About his wife, Allen says, “I am certain that Angelina will be an amazing mother. Any child would be blessed to have such an outgoing, independent, and kind person to raise them. I have been extremely blessed to share my life with her, and it would be a huge blessing for us to be able to share it with your child.”

And Angelina had these words to share about her husband: “I have no doubt that he will be a phenomenal father; a child will be so blessed to grow up with his fun-loving, easy going, affectionate ways.  I cannot wait to share parenthood with him.”

They promise to embrace your child with unconditional love and support in a stable and nurturing home.  Allen and Angelina promise to share the story of how they became a family, and welcome you to always be a part of your child’s life. They’re open to future contact, including phone calls, texts, e-mails, and annual visits.
