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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Truly our goal is the same as yours – to give your child the best life possible. We along with our 3 year old son Monroe (also adopted) look forward to growing our family through adoption again. We cannot wait to enjoy things like picnics, school events, sports, and family vacations as a family of four. We believe that your presence, either spoken of or in person, is important and we want to consistently stay involved with pictures, letters and visits. We would be happy to get together with you 6 times a year with 4 of those being in your home town and 2 in ours or somewhere in between. We would also be happy to text photos and quick updates on a weekly basis along  with longer quarterly updates in the mail.

Carl & Courtney

We are a fun family who believes in building family tradition that we look forward to sharing with you and your child. We have known each other since middle school. After eleven years of marriage, we’re still going strong. We sit at the table every night and have dinner together and talk about our days. We love weekends picnicking on the beaches of Lake Michigan, “popcorn and movie” nights in our theatre room in the winter, and going on nightly walks with our dogs. After having two children biologically, we were blessed with the adoption of our third child and we are excited to start our journey of adoption again as a way to grow our family. We would be happy to visit with you 6 times a year with 3 of those being in your hometown and 3 somewhere in between. In the months we’re not doing an in person visit we could do video chats or FaceTime as a way to stay connected. Another way we could stay connected is through weekly text updates. We look forward to getting together for picnics, festivals, museums or just having fun together. Your strength and selflessness are qualities we honor and wish to share with your child as he or she grows into a person you will be proud to know.

Adam & Angi

We are a fun-loving, faith centered, outgoing couple that loves to go to the lake and to parks, vacation, celebrate holiday traditions, and spend time together as a family. We like to spend our evenings playing with our two children, also adopted. We are so blessed to correspond with each of their birth mothers. Both relationships are unique and we look forward to this next adoption story. We are hopeful to have a loving open relationship with you and always ensuring your child knows how much your choice for adoption was done out of love (and self-sacrifice). We would be happy to visit with you 4 times a year with 2 of those being in your home town, 1 somewhere in between and 1 in ours. We would love the chance to keep in touch through weekly texts for 6 months and then spacing out to every couple of weeks after that. We are open to what you envision with this adoption. We feel you are strong, courageous, and loving for considering adoption, may God bless you.

We have been married for over 19 years and it has always been our dream to create a family together. Mike is a woodworker and carpenter and built our dream home on 8 acres of land and created rooms for the family we hope to have. He even made a secret passage and a hidden room behind a bookshelf, perfect for a child’s imagination. We look forward to seeing Legos spread out on the floor, artwork on the walls and stuffed animals. We hope to have an open adoption where we have a relationship with you that includes sharing photos and letters. We also hope to visit with you 4 times a year in your home town. We want your child to know that you and everyone else in his/her “village” want the best for them and are devoted to giving him/her what they need to have a fulfilled life.

We are a family that loves to be outdoors whether thats playing in our yard, going for a walk or a bike ride, or traveling to see new places. Adoption is not new to us as we adopted our son Miles at birth. We are forever grateful to his first mom for choosing us to parent him and love her dearly. We are so excited to welcome a new baby into our home and Miles is excited for a baby brother or baby sister to love and look out for. We are committed to making sure our children take part in schools and activities within diverse communities and we are also a part of a community of adoptive families that are thankful that Miles has friends who share a story of adoption. We hope to keep in close contact with you through texts, sharing photos and hopefully spending time together in person. We hope to be able to visit with you 6 times a year with 4 of those being in your home town and 2 somewhere in between. We promise to always support your child in life decisions, and to help him or her grow into the unique person they were created to be.

We’d be happy to visit with you in person 6 times a year as well with half of those being in your home town and the other half being in ours or somewhere in between. We want to incorporate your family and your cultural traditions into ours as we’ve done with Emalyn’s family.

Adoption is not new to our family as Jenny was adopted through ASC at birth. At the age of 18 she was able to reconnect with her birth family and she believes her birth mother to be one of the strongest people she knows and someone she looks up to. As first time parents, we look forward to zoo trips, walks in the neighborhood, and visits to Jenny’s dad’s lake house in the summer. We have a wonderful support system on both sides of our family. We look forward to making you a part of our family too and would love to visit with you 6 times a year with 4 of those being in your home town. We would also be open to sending you monthly text updates as well as setting up a photo sharing account so that you can have access to photos whenever you want. We are praying for you and your baby throughout your pregnancy.

We are an active family that likes to do everything together! We read together, cook together, workout together, and adventure together. And the best part is that Isaiah, our 2 year old son, jumps right in there with us. We adopted Isaiah when he was 10 months old and we thank God for his first mom everyday. We are so grateful that Isaiah will always know his first mom and that she can follow along with his growth through our continued open relationship. If you choose us to raise your child, we want to keep you up to date on how your baby is growing and what they are loving about life. We hope to visit with you 2 times a year in person the first year and after that visit once a year. We also foresee texting with you monthly for life along with exchanging photos, emails, or letters as well. We will speak of you in love-always telling them of your boldness and beauty in being so strong.

We can’t wait to share our love of the outdoors with a child. We enjoy gardening, bicycling, and camping just to name a few. Our home is full of love and laughter and your child will be showered with attention especially since there are two older children, Mia and Malachi, in the house who are ecstatic at the prospect of welcoming your baby into our home. We are a family that tends to do things together and experiences things together as sometimes only one of us has done something the others have not. Since family is so important to us we want you to know the your little one will be told every chance we get about the immense amount of strength you have and your deep love for them. We look forward to an open adoption where we can do 4 visits a year in your hometown, if transportation is an issue.

We have been married for over five years and look forward to the simple things like bedtime routines with Rockabye Baby albums queued up and ready to go. We can’t wait to create new memories and to share long time family traditions with your child. We love live music and enjoy attending concerts often.

Our laid back nights at home likely involve cooking together and then taking a walk in the neighborhood. We will raise your child to be accepting of all peoples, races, genders, etc., regardless of what makes them different. We will teach them compassion and respect and they will grow up knowing that your sacrifice was out of love and to hold you in the highest regard. We hope to visit with you 4 times a year finding something fun to do in between our two locations. We could also set up a private Facebook page that you could access anytime that we could update regularly while also connecting through text/phone twice a month as well. We feel blessed that you are considering us as adoptive parents for your child.

We enjoy traveling whether near or far and being art lovers we like to frequent museums and attend musicals/plays often.  Adoption is not new to our family as Kiersten’s dad and multiple cousins were adopted so your child will grow up with support from other adoptees.

We love spending time with our dogs, going to sporting events, hosting game nights with family and friends, and volunteering at our church. We dream of buying some land out in the country one day so our future child can enjoy the kind of country life that Drew experienced having grown up on a farm.  We are surrounded with family and friends who are a mix of biological children, adopted children, mixed ethnicities and different life stages and they are all so very excited to welcome a child into their lives. We imagine visiting with you 3 times a year and sharing pictures and updates once a month for the first year and then every 3 months afterward. We’d love to text with you during your pregnancy to get to know you and your child’s story and would love to continue to connect through text updates 1-2 times a month after placement. No matter if you choose adoption or not, we pray God uses this season to bless and guide you.
