Dear Birthmom

We cannot imagine what is going through your mind as you read our profile. To us, you are one of the strongest, most loving, and selfless individuals we will ever meet! As you search your heart for the life you wish for your baby, we can make you this promise: she or he will always know that you love them, and we will do everything in our power to measure up to the immense sacrifice you are making. We have so much love to give and we are honored you would consider us as adoptive parents.

Your baby would be provided every opportunity to learn, explore, and live up to his or her full potential. In our family, we love our commonalities and we celebrate our differences. Together, we make an amazing, international tapestry of different personalities and cultures. We hope to weave you in, too, as much as you are comfortable.

We always knew in our hearts that one day we would adopt a child. We just didn’t know that we would have to travel down the difficult road of infertility first. God works in mysterious ways sometimes, doesn’t He? So, here we are, opening up our hearts to your heart, and praying that you find comfort and peace in your decision.


About Us

In high school, Bakari was the star of the basketball team and an outstanding student. One year, Silvia visited his school as an exchange student. She wanted to do something she could never do back home, so she joined the boys’ wrestling team. The entire school knew both of us and conspired to bring us together. When we finally met, it was love at first sight! Fast forward almost twenty years, we are still as much in love as the day we met!

Silvia is a consultant who works from home, which gives her a lot of flexibility. Bakari works his dream job as an attorney. We both enjoy learning new things, exploring new places, and traveling. Bakari is calm, cool, and collected – the intellectual type. Silvia is adventurous and outgoing; in other words, Bakari’s fiery counterpart. Together, we make the best team!

Our Home & Pets

We recently moved into a cozy, two-story home to make room for a growing family. We are absolutely loving it! It’s wonderful to have family and friends come over or just go out and explore the city. Everything is within walking distance – farmer’s markets, parks, playgrounds, sports stadiums, sights, and attractions. Our neighborhood is safe, very diverse, and has many couples with children.

Our cat, Stevie, is the most loving creature in the world. He enjoys being around people and snuggles with us every night on the couch. Sometimes we think he’s human because he is so smart and meows as if he was having a conversation.

Our Extended Family

We both come from large, tight-knit families. Despite being spread out, we still try to get together as much as possible. Bakari has a younger sister and more cousins than we can count. Silvia has a younger brother and family in Germany and Brazil. There is never a dull moment when we go visit anywhere!

Holidays, weddings, and birthdays are usually celebrated with much fanfare, with a whole lot of food and laughter. Bakari’s family has a tradition where everyone gets in a big circle and sings “Lean on Me” together at every family reunion. It’s absolutely touching and shows just how loving and supportive they all are. When getting together is not an option, Skype, Facebook, and WhatsApp keep us connected. Some of our family group chats deserve a comedy award! They make us feel as though we’re a part of each other’s lives on a daily basis.

What Led Us To Adoption

On some level, adoption has always been on our minds. Several of Silvia’s cousins are adopted, so it’s always been a very positive topic in our family. When we found out we would not be able to have biological children, adoption was the natural next step. Once we shared with our friends and family our desire to adopt, their support was overwhelming. The baby that will come into our family is already so loved, not only by both of us, but also by a world of amazing family members and friends who can’t wait to meet him or her.

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!
