Dear expectant mother,
First of all, thank you for looking at our profile and taking a chance to learn more about us. We know what an unimaginably difficult decision this is for you and your baby. We hope you feel loved and supported throughout this process regardless of the outcome. We also know that giving your baby the very best life is something we both have in common. If you decide that we are part of your baby’s plan as their adoptive parents, we can confidently say they will be provided with an abundance of love and care. They will get to live this life because you are making a decision with their best interest at heart. How incredible!
If we are meant to be this sweet child’s adoptive parents, we promise to raise your child with unconditional love and attention in a safe and happy home surrounded by the warmth of family and friends. We love going on adventures, whether that be on a vacation, a trip to the zoo or park, fishing, hiking or snowboarding or even just staying home and being a family. We cannot wait to create memories with your child if we are chosen.
Nothing is more important to us than family! We can promise you your child will be loved and surrounded by a lot of laughter and happiness!
With all our hearts, thank you for your consideration.

We both graduated from the same university and met through friends in 2005. We married in 2013 and are the prime example of opposites attracting. Chris is extremely outgoing and can hold a conversation with anyone. He enjoys fishing and skiing. Andrea’s a little more reserved and quieter. She enjoys reading and being outdoors. Chris works as a program manager at a local company, and Andrea works at a bank as a risk operations coordinator. Andrea is passionate about dance and has been teaching for years. She is a “dance mom” to hundreds of girls and loves watching them thrive on stage. It brings her joy to be surrounded by children carrying out their talent that she’s helped them achieve. As a couple, we fully balance each other out. Our home is always full of laughter and fun as we learned early on that you can’t sweat the small stuff.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a three-bedroom, two-story, colonial-style home on a tucked away cul-de-sac in a newer neighborhood in Wisconsin, which we share with our little dog, Wookie (Shih-tzu/Yorkie). We have superb neighbors (with children), and we are located within a short walking distance of schools, parks, and bike trails close to our home that we enjoy for fishing, biking, hiking, etc. We also travel within and outside of the state experiencing new adventures. In addition, we are about three miles from Lake Michigan for beach days. Our house has a large backyard and we are planning for a pool, so it will be a great place for outdoor activities, learning, and entertaining.
Our Extended Family
We both have deep European roots that offer many traditions in both of our families, which focus around food and culture. Chris is Polish (speaks Polish fluently), and Andrea is Italian with Polish roots. We both love the holidays as these are the times when we focus on what’s most important to us—FAMILY! Now that our parents are retired and live very close to us, we can spend more time together. They cannot wait to celebrate another grandchild.
At Halloween, we decorate the house to hand out candy to the kids. Our friends come over with their children to go trick-or-treating. At Christmas time, both of our families pass on the traditions and flavors of Polish and Italian cooking and decorating the house and tree with ornaments and items that have been passed down. Whether it’s cooking pierogies, cannolis or baking cookies, it’s the “secret family recipe” that has been passed down. We get together on multiple occasions with cousins, aunts, and uncles for swimming, games, and the famous Rib-Off cooking contest. With all our family so close to each other, we truly make the most of every holiday and would love to share these wonderful moments with your child.
What Led Us To Adoption
We’ve always wanted to start a family and talked about it even before we were married. After our marriage, we tried numerous routes (fertility medication, treatments, many rounds of IUIs, and IVF) but were unsuccessful. We then were strongly drawn to adoption and felt this was the path God had planned for us to take to start a family. We have seen personal examples of adoption within our family and friends that also encouraged us down this path even further to partner with a birth mother and to provide a child a loving, happy, and safe home. We are very excited to be on this journey to make our dream of becoming parents a reality!

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!
