dear expectant mother
To a Beautiful Person:
How can we begin to express our admiration for your decision? The decision you are making is a life-changing one for you, your child, and the fortunate people whom you decide should be the parents of your baby. This decision requires such great strength, courage, and unconditional love.
When we become parents, we will raise our children in the faith and do our best to give them the tools to become good, virtuous people. We also believe in maintaining close relationships with friends and family. If you choose us, there is no question your child will be surrounded by love, laughter, and happiness.
We value education, the arts, and sports. We will do everything possible to ensure your child has a diverse range of experiences and opportunities to shape them into a well-rounded human being with a desire to learn, enjoy, and excel no matter what they set out to do. Should you choose us, your child will not go a day without knowing how much they are loved, how truly special they are, and what a miracle they are. They will know all about your selfless decision and the unconditional love and strength it took. We would be honored and eternally blessed if you chose us to be the parents of your child. We want you to know you hold a special place in our hearts, our thoughts, and our prayers.
The story of how we fell in love is certainly a unique one. We met in Alabama during our Air Force officer training schools and found out we would be working in the same office in Germany. We instantly hit it off as friends. A year and a half and two deployments later, we realized we deeply cared for and loved one another. After a long-distance relationship, we married and moved to Virginia. Nick is still an attorney in the Air Force, and Chelsea now works as a civilian government attorney. One of our favorite things to do is travel abroad and experience different cultures (and food!). We also love vacationing at the beach, especially with extended family. While at home, we enjoy spending quality time with one another by playing games, cooking, watching movies, going to sporting events, and just having fun with one another and spending time with our silly pets.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a large condo located in a very nice, family-oriented neighborhood in Virginia. We have three bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, and a large living room waiting to be stocked with toys! We also have wonderful, kind neighbors and live in a great community that supports one another. Because we are fairly close to Washington, DC, we love to go into the city to go to the museums and see the beautiful cherry blossoms in the spring. We are close to a number of hiking, walking, and biking trails too. We have two pets: Apollo, who is a large, playful, mischievous cat, and Percy, who is a fluffy, bouncy sheepadoodle. Apollo and Percy are both very sweet, cuddly, and loving and have great personalities!
Our Extended Family
We both come from very large families, where everyone is welcoming and loving. Nick has an older half-brother and half-sister and two younger brothers. Chelsea has two younger brothers and a younger sister. We are both very close with our families and visit frequently, especially Chelsea’s family because they live within an hour of us. We always spend holidays with one of our families.
Chelsea has a very large and tight-knit extended family with many aunts, uncles, cousins who get together for all of the big family/life events, including every Thanksgiving at Chelsea’s mom’s house and July 4th at her aunt’s house.
We also go on vacations with both sides of the family. Because Chelsea’s father is from Greece and still has family there, the family often visits Greece together for vacation.
What Led Us To Adoption
We knew even before we were married that adoption was something God was calling us to do. Chelsea has two incredible adopted siblings and an adopted aunt and uncle, so adoption is very familiar to us. Soon after we were married, we realized we faced infertility and experienced a loss. We knew, from the bottom of our hearts, we both deeply wanted to extend our family and that adoption was right for us. We had the resources to do so, and we asked ourselves, “Why not adopt now?” We have so much love to give and want to share that with a child.

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
