dear expectant mother
We admire you for your courage and your resilience. We are certain the decision to create an adoption plan was a momentous one for you. We are all the more grateful you would consider building that plan with us. Should you choose to entrust your child to us, you will be giving us a gift that is priceless as it is one we cannot give ourselves.
With us, your child will find two loving parents, a doting extended family, and a circle of close friends (and their own young children). Your child will find stability in the home of two well-educated professionals. Your child will grow up with both American and French passports and will speak English and French as a true citizen of the world! Your child will grow up in an environment of tolerance and respect, with parents who form a biracial couple and have family in four countries. Your child will grow up appreciating the outdoors in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and also the indoors, with many evenings of games, dinners, and laughter with friends and family. Your child will grow up knowing about you from an early age, should you wish that to be the case.
We hope, first and foremost, you will make the choice that feels right to you. If that choice happens to be us, we couldn’t be happier. Whatever your decision, thank you for helping send sunshine into the home of a loving family.
We studied at the same university in Paris (France), which is where we are from, but the funny thing is that we only met through a common friend after completing university! We both work in technology firms on the West Coast, having moved from France to the U.S. (the gorgeous Pacific Northwest) in 2014. Olivier loves spending long hours gardening and making delicious French pastry. Anchit loves playing the violin, and you will never find him without a book! When we are not at work, you will catch us hiking in one of the four national parks that surround our city or sipping a cappuccino in a cafe before hitting the farmers’ market. We also meet up with friends at least twice a week, typically over a meal, either at someone else’s house or ours. We’re a multilingual family. We speak French at home, English at work and with friends, and French / English / German with our families.
Our Home & Pets
We live with our cat, Lea, in a residential area with good schools, restaurants, and many friends nearby. We can’t wait to take your baby to the gorgeous park that’s just a minute’s walk away. It has a forest and a beach with views of the ocean and snow-capped mountains! We’re just 15 minutes away by car from downtown, which is where we both work. It’s very common for friends to drop by to share a dish from time to time! We also have a home in Berlin, Germany, and one in the French Alps that we visit twice a year for the holidays. The French home is in a picturesque little town that’s famous for its cheese and the ski resorts that surround it.
Our Extended Family
Olivier is an only child. His father passed away when he was little. He was raised by his mother, who goes out for a coffee with her friends in France every morning and a trek in the mountains once a month (She’s 70!). Anchit’s parents are retired (His mother used to be a singer!), and his younger sister recently started university in Germany. Both families are very close to each other, and we meet several times a year. They come visit us in the USA every year, and we go see them in Europe every year too.
Our family tradition has always been to get the families together for Christmas in the French Alps for a loooong French meal (smoked salmon, oysters, champagne, cheese, and a chestnut-chocolate yule log). We typically also go skiing around this time and follow up with New Year’s Eve in Paris with many of our friends and all of their children before then heading back to the USA in early January. Both of our families are incredibly excited that we are embarking on this journey and cannot wait to meet your child!
What Led Us To Adoption
What inspired us to think about adoption was our experience in raising Anchit’s sister, who is many years younger and just started college. Through regular dialogue with each other and also with our friends and families, it has become obvious to us that adoption is how we wish to grow our family. In fact, a close friend of ours was adopted when he was an infant. On so many occasions, we have seen him interact with his adoptive parents and his extended family with love and mutual affection. His story is inspirational to us and fills us with hope as we look to adopt ourselves. With us, your child will have a stable, loving, multicultural family and both the USA and Europe to call home!

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
