What a gift from God you are. You are making a selfless decision to ensure your child will have a wonderful, amazing life. A decision based entirely out of love that few can understand or sympathize with. We don’t know you, but we do know you are an amazing woman.
We are blessed. You are reading our profile because you believe we may be “the ones” – the ones who will be blessed enough to receive this gift from God, and you: to raise your child, to love your child, to be devoted to your child.
This has been the most emotional journey of our shared life. We lose sleep, wondering if you will choose us and if we have all it takes to be all we believe we can be for a child.
You are just as much of a blessing to us as your child is should you select us as parents for him or her. We will be forever honored and grateful for it. Neither of us, Gordon or Adam, are perfect. We make mistakes and might not articulate just how all of this makes us feel as well as others. But we can promise we will be terrific parents for your child – someone you can trust will love, cherish and encourage your child in all he or she seeks to do.
So thank you. Thank you for making this selfless decision, and thank you for considering us for your child.
We recently celebrated our 15th anniversary as a couple, and our third as a married couple! We met in 2001 almost by mistake, when Adam was introduced to Gordon through a mutual acquaintance, only because Adam happened to stop by a store where both Gordon and that person worked. It wasn’t until a full year that we finally met for dinner and ended up talking until 2 in the morning! Since that warm summer day, we haven’t looked back. We always knew we wanted children but we wanted to raise our child in an environment where his or her parents were married - and now, we are!
We both love to travel when time permits, especially to warmer climates like Florida! We both stay as active as possible, but also enjoy some downtime with a good comedy, particularly “The Big Bang Theory” and “The Middle.” For both of us, faith is an important piece of our relationship and our individual lives. Making our house a home through remodeling projects has also been a hobby lately, too. Family almost always takes center stage for both as well; being surrounded by those we love most keeps us grounded and centered and truly make us both whole, and everyone in our family is anxiously awaiting the arrival of the newest member of the family!
Our Home & Pets
Gordon grew up in Chicago, and Adam grew up in the Chicago suburbs. Today, we own a lovely, 4 bedroom home with a large yard in the Chicago suburbs, ensuring your child will have a room of his or her own, and a full basement in which we plan to finish to be a large play/recreation area. We have spent the last several years taking our home from just being a house to being a warm, welcoming home by remodeling almost every room in the home. The large yard offers plenty of room for children to run freely and just be kids! We are also quite fortunate to have a park for children to play at about two blocks from our home. Our cat has been a treasured extension of our family as well, and she is anxious to welcome a child into our home, too - and we hope to add a few more pets to the mix as well!
Our Extended Family
Our family is truly amazing and almost an embarrassment of riches! Adam is one of four children and enjoys close relationships with each of his siblings. His parents celebrated 50 years of marriage in 2017 and have provided a lifetime example of enduring love, compromise, and parenting. Gordon is an only child but similarly, his parents recently celebrated their 48th wedding anniversary in 2017! With the aunts and uncles, cousins, niece and nephew (and Gordon’s Godson!) – both of us are just so spoiled with the amazing family we have, all eager to meet their grandchild, nephew, niece, or cousin! We also are blessed to enjoy close relationships with friends, all of which are just as anxious for us to become parents! In fact, the son of our closest friends can’t wait to be the “big brother” of the child we welcome into our family! Our family and friends are our support system, all ready to love, support, encourage, and help us navigate what parenting is (they already are!). Best of all, grandparents, niece, nephew, uncles, aunts – all are in the Chicago area! Needless to say, this child will never be without love, attention or a family member nearby!
What Led Us To Adoption
Our journey to you has been filled with emotion. We have discussed it for several years and took just as long to prepare ourselves – emotionally, financially and spiritually, to be ready for this. We are so in love that it almost feels like we have it in excess and need to share it in this special way! Even as we try to find the words to explain to you WHY we are here, today and now, it causes both our eyes to well up. We needed to make sure, in every possible way, we were ready to take on this enormous responsibility. After 15 years together and a wonderful marriage, we are more than ready to provide a loving, stable, wonderful life for a child (or children!) – to see him or her go off to his or her first day of school, experience puppy love than real love, and maybe one day marry the love of his or her life just like his or her parents did. We both grew up with terrific parents and siblings and want to give our child, or children, every opportunity to be the person they choose to be.

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
