dear expectant mother
We can’t tell you how much it means to us that you would consider letting us raise your baby. We are anxiously awaiting snuggling your sweet baby in the rocking chair at night and kisses from his or her older sister and brother every morning. They will be loved beyond measure, not just by us but by our extended family as well. They will grow with our family, be hugged and snuggled through every tear, every cry, every smile, and all their ups and downs. We will celebrate their first smile, first wave, first word, and first step.
They will be a part of all the crazy traditions, big family events, everyday family outings, the Christmas tree cutting, giant Thanksgiving dinners, birthday parties, football games, and park days. They will be a part of our family walks during the evening and our Sunday morning pancakes and bacon as well as dance parties in the kitchen. They will never have to question whether they belong or if they are loved. They will have a place to come home to with all the happy moments and all the hard, trying times too. They will be truly loved, from every direction. The opportunity to raise your sweet baby is not taken lightly, and we are waiting with open arms.
Kristen gets to stay at home with our two kiddos, which we absolutely LOVE! She can’t wait to be a stay-at-home mom for more children. We love being present for everything, like all the firsts and getting to watch the kids grow up together. Brian is in sales. He is very much a people person and gets the opportunity to meet lots of new people and also sees current clients often, which he really enjoys. Brian loves his office, which is only about 20 minutes from home, and the people he works with are like extended family to us. We love Brian’s boss and his boss’s family, and the kids love going to their dad’s office to see their “uncles.”
Our Home & Pets
Our home is on top of a hill with a gorgeous view of the Rocky Mountains. Lots of land, a playset, a trampoline, a sandbox out back, and a big driveway with lots of room for bikes, balls, and running make the outdoors fun. We have all the bedrooms upstairs and a very large playroom with dollhouses, a kitchen, and tool benches! Downstairs is a family room where we love to have pizza and movie night and a train table that the kids love. We love being outside with our black Lab Tymber, and she also loves snuggling on the couch with us before bed. She is a lover and protector and loves growing up with the kids.
Our Extended Family
We have a very big family, and almost everyone lives close by! Both sets of grandparents babysit often! Kristen’s parents actually live down the street. Kristen’s two sisters and brother are here also. The kids love getting together with cousins, who are all close in age. Our entire family has been SO supportive about us adopting and truly can’t wait for a sweet baby to join our family!
We do almost everything together—family dinners every week, holidays and birthdays spent together, and the opportunity to see cousins weekly, whether its a volleyball game, a football game, a musical, or just to play at the park!
One of our favorite traditions is carving pumpkins together with Kristen’s mom’s entire family and Brian’s parents and having potato soup. Another favorite is that we go with Kristen’s parents to cut our very own Christmas tree. We drive up to the mountains, stop at the fire station for food and pictures with Santa, and come home with a giant tree on the car! We also drive around the surrounding neighborhoods to explore the best-decorated houses for Christmas, all while blasting Christmas music in the cars!
What Led Us To Adoption
We’ve wanted to adopt even before we were married. It had been something we often talked about and prayed for. Brian’s cousin is adopted, and Kristen’s college roommate and still very close friend was also adopted. Both of their stories made our desire to welcome a baby into our home through adoption that much stronger. Adoption has held a special place in our hearts, and we love seeing the beautiful families it has created through many different people who are close to us.

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
