We don’t know you yet, but we already know you are the bravest person we will ever meet. When we think about you, you encourage us to fight with all our might for what we believe. You are an example for us.
Thank you for being an extremely kind and considerate person for making the decision to give your child the best possible life. Thank you for considering us to be the parents to your child. We pray for you to find comfort and peace in your decision.
We believe a family is all about love, respect, and being a good to one another. Our promise to you is that no matter what, those three values will always be a priority in our home. Be assured your baby will have everything he or she needs to lead a happy and fulfilled life. We want your baby to always know where his or her roots are. Your child will always know how much you love him or her.
What you are considering is the greatest form of love — putting your baby first and trying to give him or her the best life possible. You are so courageous!
We are Cristina and Borja, a couple from Spain. Our story began during our master’s degree international trip, which took place in San Francisco. We met, fell in love, and knew we wanted to spend our lives together. In 2015, we got married and that became one of the best days of our lives.
We moved to Chicago permanently because Borja found a job as the director of a high-end business. During his free time, he loves morning runs, watching soccer, and more recently, football! He also loves following motor sports. Cristina works as a Sales Manager in the Fashion Industry, and she enjoys doing her best to stay active and healthy with yoga. She also enjoys cooking at home. On the weekends we enjoy biking and having picnics around the lake. We make a great team, continually learning from each other, so we can improve and become better versions of ourselves.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a beautiful, quiet, and family-friendly neighborhood in Chicago. We are surrounded by schools and parks, all within a mile of our apartment. We love walking around and discovering restaurants and new places.
Our home is a cozy apartment with two spacious bedrooms and two bathrooms. Our community has a pool with city views, a gym, and a theater. Most importantly, our community has a lot of babies we hope will become friends with the new addition to our family!
Our Extended Family
We were both born in Barcelona, Spain. Cristina is the youngest of four brothers and Borja is the middle of three brothers, so you can imagine how fun it must have been being surrounded by so many siblings. We would love to create that someday in our home.
We feel very lucky to have a family that supports us and are very excited about our adoption journey. We consider our family the most important part of our lives and we value the time we share together. Nowadays, with new technologies, we keep in touch with them on a daily basis. And, of course, we get a lot of visits from our family. We also go and see them as well!
Since we moved to Chicago, we have bonded with a lot of people that have become our “American family.” Most of them already have babies in their lives so we get to do family things with them, such as visiting the zoo, parks, and Chicago festivals. We feel so blessed to have them in our lives.
What Led Us To Adoption
Since our very first moment together we wanted to become parents. After many months of trying to conceive, we discovered we suffer from infertility. The chances of us conceiving are very low. After two years of trying different infertility treatments, we realized natural birth was not for us.
We have always believed that things in life happen for a reason, so we felt God was telling us that adoption was going to be a very important part of our story. We are so excited to start the journey!

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
