dear expectant mother
When we began praying about a second adoption, we included you in our prayers. You are and will always be a very important part of your baby’s life. No matter who you are or what your circumstances are, we thank God for you. Because of your consideration, we may be able to grow our family. While we cannot take away your struggles, we can promise, if you choose us, we will bring your baby to our home with tender, loving care.
Should you choose us and are interested in knowing how your child’s life is progressing, we would be happy to share letters and/or pictures. If you are not comfortable with that, we honor your decision. Your child’s adoption will be part of their life story as a positive blessing. We are both SO excited about the idea of meeting you! You will add a unique perspective to our lives.
Thank you for learning about our family and considering us for the most amazing gift a family can receive.
As a teenager, Lucy worked for Calvin’s mom and got to know his family, including quiet, easygoing Calvin. When we started dating several years later, we learned we both love hiking, biking, fishing, and camping in the wonderful outdoors. After being married for six years, we know what the other’s dreams consist of. Calvin knows Lucy thrives on time spent working in her flowerbeds or garden. Lucy knows Calvin loves freshly baked chocolate chip cookies and a glass of cold milk. We both love dark chocolate. We work together in the metal roofing supply business we co-own with Calvin’s parents. Lucy helps out as needed and spends the rest of her time as a stay-at-home mom to our little boy, who is such a big part of our lives. Wilson goes with us wherever we go and loves to try to help us with our work.
Our Home & Pets
Our little home is on the farm where Calvin grew up, close to the farmhouse, where his younger brother and sister-in-law live with their six-year-old daughter. Across the driveway from our home is the metal shop where Calvin works. We have hens, a horse, a hive of bees, and a little dog named Spotty; we also have silly barn cats. Since we live on a farm, we can visit and play with our animals every day. The church we attend is two ridges over, and the school is only a mile beyond that. Our part of Wisconsin has many rivers and scenic roads. We go biking on trails and take our kayaks down the rivers. We enjoy camping in a state park with several of our friends.
Our Extended Family
Most of Calvin’s family lives in the neighborhood and attends the same church as we do every Sunday. We get together for birthdays, holidays, and just for anything. His youngest sister still lives at home and is a favorite with her nieces and nephews. Wilson loves playdates with his little cousins.
Lucy’s family is scattered in different states, with a sister and family in KY, one sister in PA, and one sister at home. Two brothers live at home in NY too. One brother has been living with us for three years and works full-time on a local dairy farm. Lucy is the oldest in her family, and Calvin is the third oldest in his family. Lucy’s family is also very close, and we try to get to NY once a year for a family get-together.
Birthdays and holidays have always been celebrations with family and good home-cooked food. Next to our faith in God, being together as a family every day is valued. Children are considered a gift from God, someone precious to love!
Our Adoption Story
When we were newlyweds, we weren’t concerned when we didn’t conceive right away. Before we were married a year, Lucy was diagnosed with a thyroid disorder. We learned our chances of biological children were limited. Our lives were happy and productive, but our conversations began featuring topics like foster care and adoption. We have gotten to know our son’s biological family. They gave us our son on the day he was born. We love the fact we are still in contact and how much they add to our family. Wilson is too young to understand adoption, but he knows the names of his bio family, and we tell him the story of his adoption.

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
