dear expectant mother
We are so grateful and appreciative of your time, and we sincerely respect the courage and thought going into your consideration of adoption. The situation you are facing must feel scary. You may feel alone, and words cannot properly describe all the emotions you feel. We want you to know you are not alone. If you choose us to be the adoptive parents of your child, we promise to provide a loving environment in which he or she can thrive. We will always put this child first and be there to support you should you need it.
As a family, we look forward to sharing our love of sports and outdoor activities, taking pictures, cooking, holiday traditions (Christmas Eve fondue!), and family trips. We will try every day to create an environment of love, laughter, and fun.
We will work hard to honor your wishes and be the parents you dream of for your precious child. We look forward to the possibility of getting to know you should you choose to get to know us. Post-adoption, Joanna will stay home and Bob will take lots of time off as we want to be an active part of your child’s life. We are nervous and excited for this most fulfilling chapter. We cannot wait to open our home and hearts to you and your baby!
We met while playing co-ed soccer, and it was love at first sight. Joanna knew instantly, and all it took for Bob was a few conversations before he was also convinced we were meant to be! We both love the outdoors, sports, food, and traveling and believe family comes first. Joanna is a certified public accountant, and Bob is a partner for a local architecture and city planning firm. Though soccer brought us together, we have fallen in love with tennis and have built a strong circle of friends through that experience. Joanna likes to read, and she loves interior design, farmers’ markets, and long walks. Bob loves to garden, hike, bike, and listen to music. We both love to watch movies, play board games/cards, cook, ski, and travel. We both enjoy being active and spending our free time together both at home and on trips to Hawaii and Canada!
Our Home & Pets
We’re lucky to live in a house and neighborhood we love with our two kitties, Lorna and Remi, whom we adore. We’re in a tranquil spot, within walking distance of a school, parks, trails, and a big lake. We can’t wait to walk to the park down the street with a little one, exploring the neighborhood and enjoying the seasons as they change. Our house is recently renovated and contains an open layout with a kitchen island and family room, which would work well for a child for eating and playing. There is also a large patio and grassy side yard for kid activities, and we have a bedroom/bath suite close to the master bedroom that is ready to be turned into a nursery.
Our Extended Family
Bob comes from a large family with three siblings and over 40 cousins. He is the youngest in his family, and he enjoys being the favorite uncle to five nieces and nephews. His family is truly an amazing group that knows how to have a good time and enjoy life. They open their homes and hearts to all and stay well-connected.
Joanna was adopted into a wonderful family with her twin brother. They grew up with their mom in a great small town, surrounded by family and friends, and she was lucky to have the best grandparents: two selfless, fun people who loved them unconditionally and taught them the value of family, kindness, and living life to the fullest.
We love our families and look forward to the time spent together on weekends and holidays. Our families and friends could not be more supportive and excited for us to welcome a child.
What Led Us To Adoption
We both have always wanted children, and our life path has led us to the amazing journey of adoption. We know first hand the miracle of adoption as Joanna and her twin brother were adopted as infants. We have seen how much of a blessing this has been for our entire family, and we are so incredibly excited to be able to share our love and family traditions with your little one.

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
