dear expectant mother
Thank you for reading our profile and learning about us. We hope you feel the love we have and can see how much we desire nothing more than to grow our family. We can’t begin to imagine what you are going through as you consider an adoption plan for your precious baby. Should you bless us by choosing us, we want to love and support you as well as your child through this process. After experiencing pain and grief ourselves, we know the love and support of the people around us gets us through.
This is uncharted water for us, and we, too, are scared of the process. But we do know that at the end of the day, all of our stories will end in love. We hope you can take comfort in knowing your baby will be raised surrounded by so many people who already love and care for them. We also want you to understand they will always know who they came from and the love that was shown to them before they were ever fully known.
Although our search for you is very open and public, your privacy is of the utmost importance to us. Your story is just that—yours. It will not be shared by us, but we will always be in awe of your strength and courage. We are praying for you, and we can't wait to meet you!
Danny and Andrea
We are Danny and Andrea. We met in July of 2004 through a mutual friend. On Christmas night 2005, after nearly a year and a half of dating, Danny proposed, and we were married the following August. We welcomed a beautiful daughter in January of 2008. Danny is a very devoted husband and hardworking, not only at home but also at his job. Andrea is following her dreams and works at a school, where she is a preschool associate. When we are not busy taking Ella to dance and her sporting events, we have many different hobbies we like to do as a family, such as playing volleyball, corn hole, and hanging out with friends and family. We also enjoy family game night and just sitting back and watching football games while cheering on our favorite teams.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a three-bedroom, ranch-style home in a small little town in Iowa. We have a large yard with a swing set and trampoline. During the summer, our yard and home are filled with lots of love and laughter from the neighborhood children playing together. We live right across the street from a baseball field, which, every Wednesday night in the summer, is filled with our town coming together to play a game of softball.
Our Extended Family
We are very lucky to have such a wonderful and supportive family. Not only are our parents and siblings excited to welcome a child into our family but our nieces and nephews are excited also.
Danny’s parents and two brothers live around the block from us. Andrea’s parents, sisters, and brother all live about 20 miles from them. Andrea has three younger sisters and one brother. Two of Andrea’s sisters are married, and between the two of them, they have six kids. Andrea’s brother has three children. Our families are very involved in our lives. We make sure to see our families as much as we can throughout the week. If we are not able to see each other, we make sure to text or call each other. Our families make sure to get together for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, and birthdays.
One thing we really enjoy doing with each of our families is our vacations. Every year in February, we go down to Florida for a whole week with Danny’s family, and we usually all go camping for a weekend with Andrea’s family.
What Led Us To Adoption
Ever since we first met, we talked about wanting a big family. The road to adoption did not come easy for us. After the passing of two of our children from a rare genetic disorder, we knew we could not go through the loss of another child, which led us to the miracle of adoption. Danny’s mother is adopted, and a good friend of ours is adopted too. Knowing how precious adoption is, we agreed this is the right option for us. We cannot think of anything greater than sharing our love with another child and making our family complete.

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
