dear expectant mother
To a Loving Mother,
Words cannot express the gratitude we have for someone who would make such a selfless and courageous decision as the one you are considering. We admire your love, strength, and courage! We would be forever grateful and blessed to be considered as the family for your child. You would be giving us something we have tried to give ourselves for 15 years. This would be such an amazing gift!
Some traditions we would share with our child would be enjoying our cabin in northern Wisconsin while fishing, sitting by the campfire, making s’mores, and playing games. We would bake Christmas cookies with Grandma and Grandpa and have play dates with our nieces, nephews, and godchildren. During the holidays, we would spend time with both of our extended families where our child would have many cousins to play with.
Our hearts, home, family, and friends are all waiting for the arrival of a little one. Our priority in raising our child is to raise them with love. We are very family-oriented people with a lot of love to give. Our child would also know the love you have given to your child. We will be very open and up front about the courage and love it took to make this very difficult decision.
Thank you for considering us to love your child as much as you do.

Watch Our Video
We are Mike and Bri. We met in college at the restaurant where we both worked. We dated for about four years before Bri took a job opportunity in Nevada. That time apart made both of us realize what we meant to one another and truly made our relationship stronger. The following Christmas Eve we were engaged and married six months later. We are both very loving and passionate people. Mike is an apprentice plumber, and Bri is a middle school teacher. We enjoy watching sports, being outdoors, going fishing, and spending time at our family cabin in northern Wisconsin. We are also very family-oriented people. We cherish the amount of time we are lucky enough to spend with our extended families. We can’t wait to share all the love we have with a little bundle of joy!
Our Home & Pets
We live in a four-bedroom ranch home with a fully completed basement. The basement is going to be a great play area for our child(ren)! We are just blocks away from Bri’s family as well as many parks and walking trails. Our neighborhood is a very safe, quiet area with many kids playing together outside. We live in an excellent school district, where Bri teaches 6th-8th grades. We have two fun-loving chocolate labs, Kodi and Maggie, who love time outdoors and going for walks. We also have a large, fenced-in backyard perfect for outdoor fun..
Our Extended Family
We are very lucky to each have big, supportive families who get together frequently for birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, and even just weekends. Our extended families make all of our holidays fun and special!
Mike is the second oldest of four. He grew up being the oldest of three and then found out he had an older brother about ten years ago. We were excited to meet him and his family! All together, there are six children on Mike’s side, two of which are our Godchildren. Even though Mike’s family lives about two hours away, we still see them as much as we can!
Bri is the youngest of two. She was born and raised in the same city we currently live in. Her parents and brother both live within minutes, and most of her extended family all live in the same city as well. There is one child on this side of the family, who is Bri’s Godson. Bri also has many cousins who have children, two of which are also their Godchildren.
What Led Us To Adoption
We started our journey about 15 years ago. We both wanted to have children—a lot of them! Unfortunately, we ran into fertility issues along the way. We met with a specialist and became pregnant on our third IUI. The pregnancy only lasted a few weeks, and we lost our baby. We tried more IUI’s without any conception. We then decided to try IVF. On our third and final IVF transfer, we found we were pregnant again. This lasted a little bit longer but also ended in miscarriage. After some thought and discussion, we decided adoption was our route to go. We have a lot of love to give and feel this is the way to share our love!

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
