dear expectant mother
First off, we would like to say thank you and commend you for your bravery and selflessness. We understand this is an incredibly emotional choice and can only begin to imagine how you must be feeling. Our hearts and thoughts are with you.
Our dream and goal is to raise a strong and kind person. If you choose us as adoptive parents, we plan to show your baby the world. We enjoy traveling and can’t wait to share our love of adventure with your child. We have a home filled with love, laughter, music, and dancing. We will always provide a warm, safe, and inviting sanctuary for your child to thrive in. We will do everything in our power to keep your baby safe and to teach him or her to be anything he or she wants to be by offering all of life’s many opportunities.
If you choose us, we promise to share his or her adoption story from the very beginning. Your baby will know your sacrifice and the love you had in making this decision. Your love for your child will always be celebrated and will be well known within our home.
Our love story began as friendship in high school and is now a wonderful 14-year marriage. In the summer, we love to get outdoors as much as possible, exploring the many lakes in the area and golfing. In the fall, we like to go apple picking and make tasty treats. Wintertime is spent indoors with baking, movie marathons, and hosting family. We also enjoy traveling and experiencing new adventures and cultures. Ben works in sales and wonderfully balances work and life as he knows how important and precious family is. He is loving and kind and would do anything for his family and friends. Hollie is currently working in property management and also believes in the importance of a work–life balance. Hollie puts family first. She has a big heart and truly loves being a source of support and guidance for others. We cannot wait to grow our family.
Our Home & Pets
We recently built a new home here in Minnesota. The neighborhood is full of many young families with little kids. We have developed a closeness with them and consider many of them to be family. There are many parks and pools for kids to enjoy in the neighborhood as well. There are also many community events for holidays, such as Trunk or Treat for Halloween and a Christmas light display walk and cookie exchange we participate in and cannot wait to share with a child. Our home also has a large backyard with plenty of grass to play tag, throw the ball around, or just plain have fun.
Our Extended Family
Ben is an only child with great parents who have been married for 47 years and live close by. We are so blessed to have not only his parents close to us but his extended family as well. We enjoy spending time hosting family dinners or having impromptu hangouts with his large family, which includes many young cousins.
Hollie comes from a very large family, with her two parents, eight brothers and sisters, and seventeen nieces and nephews. Although they live in another state, we travel often to see them. We enjoy spending time at Hollie’s family farm feeding the animals and helping take care of the gardens. We also go camping with the whole family every other year in different national parks.
There is so much excitement about our adoption journey. The nieces and nephews can’t wait to go running through the fields and to take care of the animals with your child. Every member of our families is so excited to meet our child and help them on their journey. We all have so much love to give, and we are ready to share it.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have always known we wanted to enrich our lives with the presence of a child and grow our family. After finding out we were unable to conceive on our own, adoption was an easy choice as it has always been in our hearts. Our hope is to share our love with your child. We know many people who have adopted, and we have seen how much their families have been blessed through the process. We know it is our turn to bring the light, laughter, and joy of a precious little one into our home. We cannot wait to share our love of family and adventure with your child.

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
