C-Family

Ready & Excited

ASC is proud to partner with these families who are ready to become adoptive parents. All ASC families have completed extensive criminal background checks, been screened for substance use disorders, have demonstrated financial stability, and have excellent references. More importantly, all ASC families understand the importance of open adoption in the life of the child they hope to adopt and want to show respect and love towards their child’s birth family. More than just “home study approved,” these families have qualifications beyond what the State of Indiana requires in adoptive families.

Most ASC families are willing to adopt a child whose race or ethnic background is different than their own. Their training and education has gone beyond the minimum qualifications that ASC provides all partner families.


Ian & Marci

Family is everything to us. We love life and all the adventures it has to offer. We love to hike and explore new places, and travel to England once a year to visit Ian’s family. We are excited about the prospect of becoming parents and have no doubt that we will provide a loving, nurturing, and supportive home. For years, it has been our greatest wish to be able to give our love to a child, raising him or her with the strong Christian values we both share. We want our child to know their origins, to understand that they were wanted and adored by all of us. We promise that, if you choose us, your child will always know you. We are open to 12 visits a year with 8 of those being in central Indiana and 4 of them being in your hometown. We’d love to stay in touch through weekly text updates as well if that is something you’d like too. We would love to hear from you and answer any questions you may have for us!

We began as teammates on a childhood swim team and later became teammates for life. We still enjoy the water and get our boat out often. We love to travel and do concerts, camping and dinner dates. We are happily married and cannot wait to share this life with a child. We would love to be able to text with you during pregnancy as well as weekly text updates going forward after placement. We look forward to 6 in person visits each year. We would come to your hometown for 4 of those visits and would be happy to do 2 visits in our hometown or meeting somewhere in between. We could also video chat on the months where we don’t meet up in person. We would love for the visits to be centered around the child as they grow, engaging in an activity that they would enjoy such as going to a park, playground, or pool, visiting the zoo, museum, pumpkin patch, or carnival. Family is very important to us, and we hope you will always be a part of “our family”.  Click below to read more.

Justin & Cathy

We pray for our children’s birth families every night and they love to hear their adoption stories.  We’ve always wanted a big family and we are a faith-filled, joyful and fun loving family. Our weekends entail the local library and farmers market.  Sunday means it’s Justin’s famous pancakes in our 100 year old home.  We live in a very diverse area of the city and Cathy enjoys mentoring and getting advice from the African American moms on the block.  If we are lucky enough to raise your baby, we are happy to include you in our lives and get together with you 4 times a year to stay connected.  Click below to read how we bought two houses next to each other and connected them together!

In addition we could also connect with you through 4 Skype or video chats a year and through bi-weekly text updates. Click below to see how we met-we believe it was fate!

Marilyn has 8 adopted siblings and so we know first hand the importance of birth families.  For you to entrust someone else to raise your child requires incredible bravery, strength and honesty but above all, love. We are excited to be parents and have so much love to give.  We are open to visiting 12 times a year with you with 4 of those being in your home town, 4 in ours and 4 somewhere in between. We are also open to staying connected with you through weekly texts during your pregnancy as well as after you deliver. Wherever your journey leads you, we hope you find comfort in knowing that your sacrifice means more than words could ever convey to a childless couple such as ourselves.

With our whole heart, thank you for considering us.  A grand new adventure is about to start, and we cannot wait! We PROMISE your little one will always know of your love and they will know what a selfless, loving decision you made for their future.  We anticipate our relationship with you to revolve around photos and video chatting as much as possible.  As we live in northern Indiana, we would welcome up to 8 physical visits a year.  Some visits would be in your hometown, some in ours and some meeting in between somewhere. We love taking pictures so we imagine we’ll be sending lots of updates through text and videos on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. We are open to making this plan work for both our families!  Click below to see our piece of paradise!

We have essentially grown up together since meeting as college freshmen.  We love, respect and admire one another, but above all, we are friends. We are a true partners who make each other laugh on a daily basis.  We welcomed daughter, Greer, into our lives in January 2017.  Her birth mother is one of the bravest women we know.  You are also incredibly brave and we will honor you and whatever path you have walked on this difficult journey.  We would love to see you 6 times a year and share all the important moments along the way. We could also do things like sharing life through email, a photo share site or through FaceTime. We’re also open to sending you weekly or bi-weekly text updates and would love to hear what you were hoping for. Click below to read more about our family, Greer, and her birth mom’s thoughts.

Our home is built on love, faith and trust. We have been together since high school and are now looking to grow our family once again through adoption. We adopted our son, Cash, in 2013. We are so very grateful for Cash’s birthmother. We would love the chance to meet you, to learn about the life you envision for your child, and would be happy to share an open adoption with you that includes sharing pictures, letters, texting with you weekly forever, and doing 4 physical visits a year, 2 in your hometown and 2 somewhere in between  where there are fun things to do like meeting at the zoo or a play area. We’d also be open to the potential for doing video calls as well. Please always remember that we will keep our promise of an open adoption or whatever your preference may be. We pray that God gives you strength and peace you need when making your decision.

Brady & Lacey

We want to raise your child in a loving, faithful, and fun home along with our (also adopted) five-year-old son, Henry, who is SO excited about being a big brother. As a family we like to go hiking, visit Grandpa’s pool in the summer and go to our favorite vacation spots- the beach and Disney! Your child will be raised knowing that you made the most selfless decision and that you did it out of love for them. We envision sending letters, photos, texts, and having 3 visits a year with you with 1 of those being in your hometown and 2 in the Indy area. Maybe meeting at a park, the zoo, or anywhere fun so that you and your child can have a wonderful relationship. We can even set up a photo sharing site to easily share photos between visits and letters and could also send you weekly texts to share updates as well! If this is not what you had in mind, we’re happy to listen to what you’d like.

Zach & Kendra

Our families are not new to adoption. Zach has cousins that are adopted and Kendra’s family has seen the other side of adoption as her grandmother is a birthmother and was reunited with her son just a year ago. This is one of the reasons we believe so strongly about open adoption. We want to “do life together” with you. We hope to do 6 visits a year with you. These visits could be either in your hometown doing things like visiting a museum or zoo or in our own home for a relaxing weekend. We would also love to have 6 more visits with you done over Skype/FaceTime. We plan on communicating with you through daily texts before and after pregnancy. We want to be able to send you the same “good morning” texts that we send the rest of our family members daily. That is because you are and will always be family to us. We would love to get to see or hear back from you to hear of your hopes and dreams and how we can find a way to make them a reality.

The best way to describe our marriage now is with the word “happy face”. In 2016 we adopted Levi through ASC and have been so blessed by the miracle of adoption. We know it’s how God wants us to continue to grow our family and we’re excited to welcome another child into the family in HIS timing. We are committed to raising our children to follow God and to love and respect everyone, including their birth parents. We have family members who have also adopted children, so adoption is celebrated and cherished within our family. We hope to have an open adoption and share pictures, send letters and have visits. We have an open adoption with our son Levi’s birth mom, whom we call his Madres. We pray for her every day and Levi loves seeing her picture on his dresser. We love to be able to meet up with you 4 times a year, 2 in your home town and 2 somewhere in between. We could visit at the zoo, museums, parks and other fun locations. We would also love to text throughout the pregnancy and after placement once a week to send you updates. Open adoption is such an incredible and beautiful thing, and we would love to welcome you into our family.

I guess you could say we’re homebodies. We value spending time together over expensive gifts or vacations. This often means walks throughout our neighborhood with our pups, watching a movie or TV show together, working a puzzle, or cooking together at home. We both have stable, full time jobs, which will allow us to provide a supportive and nurturing home for your child. Our families all live within thirty minutes of us and are all beyond excited to welcome a baby into the family! We want you to be a part of our family and share our experiences too. We are happy to share pictures, letters, and emails as well as one annual visit in your home town. We’d also look forward to texting with you during your pregnancy as well as sending monthly text updates after placement. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. We would love to get to know you.

We’re loving, happy, healthy, respectful, intelligent, fun and financially stable. We enjoy being active as a family. We like traveling to new and familiar places, playing games indoors and outdoors, listening to live music, hiking with our dog and watching sports. We have been blessed to adopt our son Julian through ASC and look forward to adding another child to our family. We have an open adoption with Julian’s birthmother. She has become part of our family and we love her dearly. We’ve also gotten to know many other family members (including Julian’s half siblings, grandparents and cousins) during our visits and we really value those relationships as well. We are eternally grateful to her for her courage, strength and kindness. As we begin this next adoption, we look forward to a similar connection. We would love to visit with you 5 times a year, with 3 of those visits being in your home town and 2 being in the central Indiana area. We would also like to stay connected through texting, probably weekly for the first couple of months after placement and then switching to monthly FaceTime or text updates with pictures forever. In our home your child will be secure and loved unconditionally.

We are an active couple who likes adventure. We love the outdoors so it makes sense that we built our dream house in a country setting on about fourteen acres of woods. We envision a treehouse in the backyard someday and four-wheeler rides for our future children. We love to hike and camp together and look forward to kids joining us in these outdoor activities. We hope to bring joy and excitement along with many adventures into your child’s life and already know that they will fill hearts with these things. We want your child to know and respect their origin and we are open to visiting with you 4 times a year. We would also like to get to know you and keep in touch by phone and could text with you twice a month during your pregnancy and then once a month after placement to send you pictures and updates. We want your child to always know and respect you. We want you to trust that by choosing us, your child will always be loved and encouraged.

Darrick & Leah

We have 2 biological children but have always planned on adding to our family through adoption too. Adoption is not not new to our family as one of Leah’s brothers is adopted. He, along with the rest of our family, is super excited for a new family member. We will do everything we can to promote an environment where your child feels comfortable to fully love and embrace their unique story and all the people that love them. We look forward to pursuing a relationship with you post adoption. This could include birthday parties at the park, phone calls, texts, pictures, or visits to keep you updated and involved. We are open to visiting with you 4 times a year in your hometown. If you happen to live very close to us then we are open to meeting more often if that is something you’d like. We are also hoping to stay connected during your pregnancy through texting weekly. We’d love to continue this after placement and could send you weekly texts as well as connecting through FaceTime once a month. God bless you, our prayers and thoughts are with you.

Daniel & Marissa

Adoption is not new to our family. When Daniel’s mother was in high school she placed a child for adoption and Daniel himself was adopted as a child by his stepfather. Because of this, we truly understand and appreciated the selfless act of love and courage you are making as you choose to make an adoption plan for your child. Having children has always been our dream. We are committed to nurturing your child in a loving, Christian home. We always want your child to be reminded of how much you love him or her. We would love to have a close relationship with you through texts, photos, email, Instagram, video chats, and visits. We look forward to texting with you weekly both during pregnancy and afterwards and would like to setup a photo sharing site with you. We hope to visit with you in person 5 times a year with 3 of those being in your hometown and 2 within an hour of our hometown. Please know that your child will grow up knowing how much you love him or her and how you courageously advocated for the very best for him or her from the very beginning. We are thinking of you and praying for you.

We have wanted to start a family for a very long time. We will love a child unconditionally just as we were both raised in loving families ourselves. We will make sure your child knows the sacrifice and unconditional love you have shown them by selflessly choosing adoption. We foresee us sharing pictures and updates and would love to visit with you 4 times a year in your hometown. We envision having play dates at the park or zoo in nice weather or meeting for a pizza party or going bowling when weather does not cooperate. We’d love to text with you weekly during your pregnancy and after to share updates and texts. After the first month we could send text updates two times a month and mail pictures monthly during your child’s first year. After the first year we’ll continue to update you through mailed pictures and updates every other month after the first year. We look forward to meeting you and listening to you as we discuss how we all envision the future. While we are not familiar with what you’re feeling, we are so gracious to you for even considering us to raise your child.

The two of us have hoped to grow our family for some time now, so we have a lot of love bursting at the seams ready to pour out on a child! If you were to choose us to adopt your child, your child will grow up in a home surrounded by people who love them, cherish them, and always want what is best for them. We also want what is best for you. We would love to have monthly connections with you. Of those monthly connections we’d like 6 to be in person with 4 of those being in your hometown and 2 somewhere in between. We could go to the zoo, park, or favorite restaurants. The other monthly connections could be through sharing letters or emails, picture sharing or Skype visits. We want to celebrate life with you and share special events such as birthdays. We want you to be able to see your child grow, even if you are not able to see them every day. We pray that God gives you great peace and blessings on the journey ahead of you.

We hope that as you get to know us, we will ease your fears that you may have and you will see that we are caring, friendly and warm. We adopted our son, Brock, in 2017. We tell Brock about his birth mom and adoption story and keep a picture of her by his bed so he can see her every day and she is always a part of our prayers at night. We truly love and honor her for the opportunity to care for him and love him with all our hearts. We are so excited to have another baby in our home and Brock and our dog, Pepper, are also excited to have another brother or sister to play with, love and become best friends with. We would love to share pictures, write letters and have visits if you choose us. We would love to visit with you 6 times a year with 4 being in your hometown and 2 in our hometown or meeting somewhere halfway. We are comfortable sharing bi-weekly texts and pictures after placement as well as talking over FaceTime and sending monthly updates on a photo sharing account. If you choose us, we will always let your child know how strong and courageous you are and how much you love him or her.
