Thank you for taking the time to get to know us, we hope that our profile will give you a glimpse into our lives and the life that your child would have if you chose us.
We are so grateful to you for considering adoption for your child. With that being said, we also cannot begin to imagine all of the emotions that you are feeling right now. We think that you are an amazing and courageous person, and we know that you love your baby so much. We are so thankful that you are considering us to raise your child. We want you to know that we are not only looking to open our hearts to a child but to you as well. We would like to develop a relationship with you and would love for you to have a relationship with your child to whatever extent you are comfortable. We feel that there is no such thing as a child having too many people that love and support him or her.
If you choose us as adoptive parents for your precious child, we will instill in him or her the importance of education, family values, strong morals, and a love of God. We will nurture and support his or her interests and desires.
We have wanted to have children for so long and we are so excited about the possibility of doing that through adoption. Having child is the missing piece to our puzzle. Thank you so much for considering us!
Seven years ago, mutual friends of ours wanted to introduce us. However, at that time Andrew was moving out of state for work and didn't feel it was a good time. A few months after he returned home we came across each other on a dating website before our friends could have us meet. It was nothing short of a crazy coincidence, but to us, it just proved how much we were meant to be together. We have now been married for 4 years.
Andrew is a Senior Service Manager for a local utility company. Rachel works with at risk children through the Early Head Start Program. She does developmental actives with the children and their parents, as well as provides resources and educational information.
Andrew enjoys hunting, fishing and video games. Rachel enjoys cooking, reading and crafts. We enjoy hosting friends/ family in our home, going to sporting events, playing board games, spending weekends up north, swimming, walking Zoe, and hiking. We also love traveling to warm places and taking on home projects.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a three-bedroom, one-and-a-half bath ranch house that we bought about a year-and-a-half ago. We really enjoyed the process of fixing it up. We saw that we were able to take a house and turn it into our home. Our home is in a quiet suburb that is also close to the city. We live in a very friendly neighborhood that has annual block parties. There are several families in the neighborhood with young children, and any time of the day you can see people walking with their children and or dogs. We also have a neighborhood park and short hiking trail a few blocks away.
We have one dog, Zoe, who is two years old. She is very friendly and well behaved.
Our Extended Family
Andrew has an older brother who is married with two children and a younger sister who recently moved to Texas with her fiancé. Andrew’s parents and his brother and family live about 45 minutes from us.
Rachel is the oldest of four. Her parents and youngest brother live just a few short minutes from our home. Her sister and her husband also live nearby, and her other brother is currently living in Kansas City finishing his residency.
We enjoy seeing both sides of our families regularly, having dinners or cookouts together, and spending time swimming at Andrew’s parents’ pool. We especially enjoy spending holidays with everyone.
We are both fortunate to have such loving and supportive families that live close to us. They have all been so encouraging and excited for our decision to adopt. Our niece and nephew are also looking forward to having a cousin! We know that our family will have the same unconditional love for an adopted child that we will.
What Led Us To Adoption
Even before we were married, we talked about wanting to have a family - a home filled with love, laughter, and children. We have the love and laughter, but we are missing a very important part - children! We tried some basic infertility treatments over the past year but were unsuccessful. Rachel has personally always been interested in adoption, even before we were aware of infertility challenges. Andrew’s mother was adopted, as well as one of his closest friends, so adoption has been very close to his heart as well. So, once God closed the door on us becoming pregnant, we knew in our hearts that adoption had been our path all along.

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
