dear expectant mother
We believe that the choice you are making personally is one of courage and selflessness. As difficult as it can be to walk this out we want you to know beyond a shadow of a doubt that we fully understand that this isn’t an easy decision. The path you’ve chosen proves your love for your unborn child and your commitment to life itself. Words cannot begin to express our gratefulness and we are humbled that you would want us to raise this baby as our own. We absolutely cannot wait to show them the ways of the world and how to grow into a confident, compassionate and loving person. This is a lifelong process that involves moment by moment teaching, mentoring, and caring to grow. We believe in playing sports, musical instruments, arts & crafts or anything that can help them achieve being the best version of themselves. Opening a child’s eyes to and exposing them to as much as we can will help them develop into a bright light for this world.
We are John and Christine and we met through mutual friends almost 20 years ago, dated some but went separate ways always staying in touch, until 2004 when we began a new relationship, got engaged, then married in 2005 on New Years Eve.
Christine is self-employed, manages the household, and enjoys rock climbing and the outdoors. She likes to be active doing almost anything, supports her nieces together with her husband and other family by attending soccer games and tournaments on the weekends and traveling with them to Disney most every year, she cooks often focusing on making organic and healthy meals and is a naturally nurturing person.
John is a Real estate agent full time, a Star Wars fanatic, still enjoys collecting toys and has been drawing since he was 5 years old. He spends time drawing with his nieces, taking them on hikes and always being silly. He also works with an author of children’s books and is currently illustrating his second book.
We are both active in our faith and at our local church. Our weekends are full of activities, we love spending time with family, traveling throughout the year, but don’t mind staying home and relaxing too. We believe life is a huge blessing and don’t take anything for granted.
Our Home & Pets
Our home is located in a safe townhome community close to the mountains. There is a salt-water pool, a fishing pond, and other great families nearby. We live here with our dog Sasha, a mixed breed that Christine saved from a shelter about 12 years ago. The house is 3 levels with a large basement. It offers modern amenities, 3 spacious bedrooms and 4-bathrooms. We also enjoy a private deck with a wooded view and our close family only lives a few doors down.
Our Extended Family
We have a huge family with a wide variety of nationalities. Locally we have one set of parents (Grampy and Joyce), who we are involved with heavily. We also have Christine’s brother, his wife and our 2 nieces (ages 13 and 9) who live a few doors down from us where we live. We are intimately involved with them on a regular basis, from taking the kids to school, eating dinner together and to attending all the kid’s soccer games. A large portion of our extended family live up north, so traveling frequently is a very important family tradition, especially during the holiday seasons. We love getting together with everyone where things get loud and we eat way too much food! Our family consists of Great Grandparents, Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews, all so excited for us to be adopting!
What Led Us To Adoption
Ever since we were married we had a desire to have a family. We went through every possible door to accomplish this. We’ve tried on our own for 7+ years as we contacted our local adoption agency. We also pursued international adoption and foster care to adopt as well as looking into second chance adoptions. Nothing had worked out so with what little faith we could muster at the time, we hung in their turning away from wanting to pursue IVF treatments and accepting we may not be able to have our own family. Until one day my wife was online and somehow Angel Adoption came up. She was so excited so she ran into my office and showed me. We immediately submit the application and ever since then we have been on our journey waiting with hope for our birth mother and future child.

Choose a Family for
Your Baby With Confidence
As you browse our list of hopeful adoptive parents, you can feel confident in knowing that all of the adoptive families working with Angel Adoption are prepared to offer your baby a safe, stable, and loving environment along with a wealth of opportunities for a happy and fulfilling life.
Each adoptive parent has been thoroughly evaluated through a home study course conducted by a licensed agency. A completed home study means the family is emotionally, physically, and financially ready to adopt a baby.
The home study process includes assessments of each parent’s character, marital stability, financial situation, lifestyle, and medical history. The agency also runs background checks to verify there is no record of criminal activity or child abuse. In addition, a social worker will inspect the family’s home to ensure it is a safe environment for a child.
Furthermore, Angel Adoption requires each family to be educated on adopting and parenting. After a baby has been placed with the adoptive family, a social worker will continue to monitor and supervise the family. We go to great lengths to make sure all the families you have to choose from are going to be excellent parents for your baby!Return to Waiting Families
