dear expectant mother
We would like to start by thanking you. Thank you for reading through our profile as you process these life-changing choices for you and your baby. We think you have a tremendous amount of courage in this decision and abundant hope for your future.
We cannot imagine the thoughts, questions, and concerns that you must have, but let us help you rest assured about a few things. First, we will provide a home that is non-judgemental and full of unconditional love. Second, we strongly believe that education starts in the home. From infant until they leave the home as an adult, your baby will learn truth, values, and responsibility. They will have endless opportunities to explore and learn about nature as well as the privilege they have to grow up in the United States of America. Next, your baby will have the opportunity to develop and mature their faith. As parents, we will model this in the home as well as by attending weekly church activities. Lastly, your child will be able to grow up knowing their birth family, if that is your will. They can weave a beautiful canvas called life as they combine their families with all the character and personality. Lord willing, they will be a big sibling in the future!
We met online in 2016, and 18 months later we exchanged vows. Being married and having a family have been childhood dreams for both of us. Dan is a farm mechanic at the family business. He’s dedicated and a hard-worker. He enjoys gardening, crop farming, tinkering with home and farm projects, and attending local farm auctions. Bethany has a background in education and tutors elementary students. She’s determined, passionate, and caring, and she enjoys cooking, baking, shopping for amazing deals, or reading a good book while enjoying a wonderful cup of coffee. Being self-employed gives us flexibility to handle the day-to-day needs of a family, and gives us ample time to enjoy our weekly Bible study, extended family, local festivals, laughing, learning, watching a good family movie, or spending time with friends.
Our Home & Pets
We live in rural Wisconsin, about 12 minutes outside a larger city. We have access to museums, the zoo, shopping, and family entertainment. Our house is a small two-story farmhouse built by Dan’s grandfather during World War II, and we are currently upgrading the house room by room. Dan enjoys crop farming and raising fruits and vegetables in a large garden with his parents, while Bethany enjoys preparing the harvest for the beautiful snowy Wisconsin winters. We also enjoy walks, visiting local parks, and attending local festivals. Your baby will growing up with many opportunities available to them. There are recreation, music, art, and agricultural programs in the community. They will also enjoy playing outside, going to local parks, and learning to swim.
Our Extended Family
Your baby will grow up knowing their extended family well. Dan is the first born of three children. His parents live just 100 yards down the road with his brother, who is also part of the family business. Dan’s sister and her family live 15 miles away; she and her husband have two young boys who are excited to have a young cousin!
Bethany is also the first born. Her mother lives three hours away, but she visits frequently, and weekend getaways to see grandma are certainly in the calendar! Bethany’s dad went to heaven in April 2018 after a 45-year marriage. Her sister lives in Guatemala with her husband and three children, and they come to visit every 12-18 months.
Making memories through family traditions and life experiences is very important to us, and we consider our church family an important part of our lives. We are involved in our local church multiple times a week, so your child will have an extended community there to support them as they grow.
What Led Us To Adoption
Adoption has had a special place in our hearts long before we met each other. The topic of children was a high priority for both of us during our first dates. We knew we would possibly needs to seek alternative choices of growing a family, so we immediately started to research adoption. Knowing individuals and families that have been through the adoption process has given us a peace. We have seen firsthand how much joy and happiness it has brought to their families.

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
