dear expectant mother
Let us start out by saying thank you for your consideration to raise your baby. We can only imagine that this is a very emotional and overwhelming choice that you are considering. We know that we don't fully understand how you must be feeling, but our hearts and thoughts are with you now.
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 love to travel and we plan to share this with your baby. We will have a home filled with love, laughter, music, and dancing. It will be a warm, safe, and inviting sanctuary. 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 lifes oppurtnities.
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 have in making this decision.
Our love story began 18 years ago in German class in high school where Hollie gave Ben her autograph and told him that she was going to be famous. We started out as friends and did everything together. It wasn't until about a year after we met that we actually started dating. Our friendship is now a wonderful 12 year marriage.
Ben has worked in software sales for the last four years and focuses on maintaining a balance between work and home. Hollie is currently working in commercial property management and has been at her job for a couple years now. Ben is just a big teddy bear. He is so loving and kind and would do anything for his family and friends. Hollie always puts family before everything else. She has such a big heart and loves everyone.
We can’t wait to welcome a baby into our lives and grow our family.
Our Home & Pets
Five years ago, we purchased a home in Minnesota where we have done a lot of work to make it our little oasis. We have wonderful neighbors who are always there to lend a helping hand. We are surrounded by many young families with little kids. There will be no shortage or neighborhood friends for your baby if you choose us as adoptive parents. There is a big park a block away that has events for almost every holiday as well as movies in the park in the summer. There is a large backyard with plenty of grass in which to play tag, to throw the ball around, or just plain have fun.
Our Extended Family
Ben is an only child with two great parents who have been married for 46 years, they live close by, as does his extended family. Ben has three uncles, one aunt, ten cousins and their seven children. It is not uncommon to find us all getting together for a family dinner or just an impromptu hang out at our house.
Hollie comes from a very large family with her two parents, eight brothers and sisters, 14 nieces and nephews, and with two more on the way. She also has five aunts and uncles. They have 20 kids with the youngest being seven.
There is so much excitement about our adoption journey. Our family can't wait to show a child Hollie’s family’s farm where they have horses, pigs, chickens, and rabbits. They can't wait for this little one to go running through the fields with their cousins and learning how to take care of the animals. The thought of raising a precious child is more than we could put into words.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have always known that we wanted a family. When things ended up not working out the way we had first hoped we were ok with that because adoption was always in our hearts. The idea of adoption was an easy choice. We didn't care how our family grew, just that it did. Our hope is to share our love with a child. We know many people who have adopted and we have seen how much their families have been blessed through the process. We knew it was our turn to bring the light, laughter, and joy of a precious little one into our home.

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
