dear expectant mother
Thank you for taking the time to consider us as the family to raise your child. We know this decision is not easy and empathize with you in this journey you are taking. A child we have the privilege to raise will be brought up with traditions and a wide variety of cultural experiences. Living in Florida, we are in a very diverse community that is centered on outdoor activities. We hope for the opportunity for our child to learn new languages and embrace other cultures. We would provide new experiences and memories through travel. Our fondest memories growing up are our annual trips with our families, and we intend to keep this tradition alive.
We both have flexible work schedules, which allows us to adapt to the growing family we aim to have. We are both active leaders within our community, and our child will have the opportunity to be involved in clubs or sports. Being surrounded by many cousins and having other adopted cousins, our child will grow up in a family who truly understands them.
We hope to develop an understanding of the life you intend for your child to have and would aim to fulfill such wishes. We hope to share their heritage and the history that makes them who they are. Once again, thank you for your consideration, and we hope we have answered any questions you may have on how we can provide a safe, fun, and stable life for your child.
We are an outgoing couple who are hardworking, embrace our environment, and value our families. Craig is a general manager of two hotels in a large metropolitan city. Richard has worked in law enforcement for many years. Each day, we both get to work directly with others and help people. Our jobs allow us the ability to problem-solve in a fast-paced environment. We have flexibility in our schedules, which allows us the ability to balance work and home life to always ensure there is time to enjoy the important things in life and spend time with our friends and family. When not working, we spend time enjoying the outdoors with our puppy, Rio. We frequent the gym, participate in run clubs, and value a healthy lifestyle. We are in close communication with our families on a regular basis, which gives us a strong support network.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a warm, tropical, urban environment with a vast array of cultural experiences. Living in this area allows us to spend a lot of time outdoors and at the beach. Our three-bedroom, two-bathroom home is in a safe area close to great schools and state parks; in our neighborhood, we have three parks within walking distance. Any child in our care would have the ability to grow up in a neighborhood surrounded by many other children to help them socialize and enjoy their youth. We cannot wait for the opportunity to bring our child to the beach with us, go boating and kayaking, spend hours at the neighborhood park, or have playdates with the children of our friends and family.
Our Extended Family
Craig grew up in the Midwest in a Lutheran family with two brothers and two sisters who have had their own children. Craig has grown up enjoying traditions centered on the Christian faith. Spending Christmas going caroling, wrapping presents, and going sledding are traditions we hope to pass down to our child.
Richard grew up in the Jewish religion with his parents and younger brother. His brother has recently had a daughter, so our child will grow up with a cousin close in age. Our child will have the opportunity to grow up learning two faiths and have the ability to decide what traditions they want to pass on themselves.
Our families are very close to this day. We often have large family gatherings when all of our cousins and second cousins get together. With time, our families have grown very large and diverse, and we are excited to share this experience with any child in our care. Our extended family is also made up of those who have been adopted and who have also placed their children into adoptive care.
What Led Us To Adoption
With both of us being so close with our family, we have always envisioned one day raising children of our own. Together for over eight years, we have built a solid foundation surrounded by caring and loving individuals. We often find ourselves babysitting and spending time with our nieces and nephews, which began our conversation about embarking on our own journey. We chose adoption because we hope to have the opportunity to raise a child. We intend to share their unique journey while celebrating their culture and background. We live in a very diverse community, and we want the opportunity to provide a child with a plethora of new cultural and educational experiences.

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
