dear expectant mother
We know this is a confusing and difficult time for you while you are trying to figure out the best decision for both you and your baby. We hope you feel supported and loved no matter what your decision may be. We admire you and are extremely grateful for you even considering us to raise your beautiful child and want you to know how incredibly special you are as an expectant mother and as an individual!
If we are chosen as the 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 promise to provide life and educational experiences whether close to home or away, such as playdates with our friends’ children, fun trips to the zoo or state parks, vacations on the beach or road trips, fishing and hiking, and learning to ski or snowboard. These are just a few things we plan on experiencing as a family in addition to passing down old traditions and creating new ones.
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 are both graduates of the same university in Wisconsin and met in college through mutual friends in 2005. We were married in 2013 and are the prime example of opposites attracting. Chris is extremely outgoing and can hold a conversation or hang out with anyone. He enjoys outdoor activities, such as fishing, biking, and skiing in the winter. Andrea is a little more reserved and quieter. She enjoys reading, outdoor activities with Chris, and beach walks with our dog, Wookie. Chris works in sales as a program manager at a local company, and Andrea works at a bank as a risk operations coordinator. 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. We are always looking for our next adventure to experience new things and make memories together.
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 (and speaks Polish fluently), and Andrea is Italian with Polish roots. We both love the holidays as these are the times when we can focus on what’s most important to us—FAMILY! Now that both sets of our parents are retired and live very close to us, we can spend more time together.
At Halloween, we dress up the house and ourselves to hand out candy to the kids. Our friends come over with their children as well to trick-or-treat. At Christmastime, 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 or cannolis or baking cookies, it’s the “secret family recipe” that has been passed down. Each summer, we also get together on multiple occasions with cousins, aunts, and uncles for BBQs, swimming, games, and the famous Rib-Off cooking contest. With all our family so close to each other, there are community activities and farmers markets we all like to attend together.
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!Return to Waiting Families
