dear expectant mother
Thank you for taking the time to consider us. We appreciate the thought and care that goes into considering an adoption plan for your precious child. We can’t imagine what you are going through, but we want you to know we deeply respect your strength, selflessness, and bravery and realize there are no words we can say that will make this decision any easier for you.
Please know if you choose us, your child will be welcomed with open arms and loving hearts. Your child will always come first and be our top priority. We hope you find peace in knowing your child will have a safe, secure, and loving home. We will love them unconditionally and support them throughout their life so they can thrive as the person you hope and dream for them to become.
We are a down-to-earth couple that is ready to shower your little one with lots of love and affection. We cannot wait to see them grow and allow their personality to shine. We are grateful for the opportunity to get to know you and potentially share this life experience with you. We know our paths crossing is not a coincidence but an opportunity God has given us to create a beautiful story and the next chapter of our life’s story. Thank you for considering us for this amazing honor and gift.

We met in 2016 on a blind double date set up by a mutual friend. After several conversations, we had our first date over sushi. With both of us being very direct and honest, we agreed to a game of 20 “deal breaker” questions to get any red flags out of the way and help pave the path forward. Obviously the date went well, and it was just a few short years until we got married. We enjoy traveling and sightseeing for the occasional long weekend. When we’re home, Jen loves tending to our garden, watching/feeding the birds, and caring for our plants. Dan enjoys spending time playing with our two dogs, hosting family and friends, or catching up with his out-of-state family. Together we enjoy watching movies, checking out the local festivals/farmers markets, or taking a quiet stroll around the neighborhood.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood with our two rescue hounds, Nyko & Loki, that we adopted 6+ years ago. Over the last couple of years we've gotten to know our neighbors and their children, whose ages range from 2 up to late teens. We are less than a ten-minute drive to a number of parks and playgrounds. Our highly rated elementary and high schools are within five miles. The local area is very diverse and has a number of festivals and farmers markets we visit to augment our garden and home decorations. Jen’s family lives within a 20-minute drive, so family lunches and dinners are a regular event, as is time with our almost four-year-old nephew.
Our Extended Family
While we don’t live near our extended family, we do our best to keep in touch and visit as much as possible. We both have family scattered across the country, so we are blessed to be able to visit any number of states and still find family. The bulk of Dan’s family lives on the West Coast, so trips to San Francisco & Napa are always on the list for great food and sightseeing when we visit. Jen’s family is based out of the Midwest. Family visits are guaranteed to be filled with lots of laughter, family games and barbeques. Aside from our stateside family, Dan also has family in Puerto Rico and Belize.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have always wanted children and to grow our family but never had the opportunity to do so for a variety of reasons. Shortly after getting married, we found out we are not able to have children biologically. While this was devastating news to receive, it never lessened our desire to become parents. During our engagement, we had already discussed the option of adopting should natural birth not be an option for us, so our path forward was already laid out. We still have a lot of love to give and look forward to spoiling the little boy or girl we are blessed with in the future.

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!
