Our promise to you is that your baby will always have a home filled with love, joy, and laughter. We promise to take the time each and every day to make sure your child knows he or she is special and loved. We promise to help them understand their adoption story and the courage it took to choose adoption. Your child will know that he or she came to us out of love, and they are a miracle that has brought so much into our lives. We promise to provide a stable environment. We will provide a life that is filled with people who love them. Beginning with us, he or she will always be surrounded by people who will not only love them, but also support, guide, and provide for them. Your child will know they are loved unconditionally by us, by God, and by all those who surround them.

Our promise is to give your child a life filled with love, happiness, joy, and laughter, surrounded by family and friends. He or she will have all the time and attention that every child deserves and will know they are loved unconditionally. Thank you for letting us share our story with you. We look forward to hearing yours.

About Us

We are a happily married couple with two sons, and we want to grow our family and share our lives with another child. We met in 2005 and began dating soon after. We were married in March 2008. Dan has a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering, and he is employed at a large engineering company, where he works as a Senior Design Engineer. In his free time, Dan enjoys playing with Jacob, Benjamin, and the dogs. He likes working outdoors, cooking and home improvement. Stephanie was employed at a software company before deciding to become a stay-at-home mom. She loves being able to spend her time at home with the children. In her free time, she enjoys volunteering, baking, and website design. As a couple, we enjoy seeing movies together, cooking, and visiting new places, but our favorite activities are visiting the local zoo and museum as a family.

Our Home & Pets

We live in a quiet and friendly neighborhood at the end of a cul-de-sac. We have a six-bedroom home with a large yard. On one side of the house, we have a swing set and tree house with a patio, and on the other side is a garden. Our yard has plenty of trees and a great deal of grass, with room to play. We have two dogs, a cat, and a turtle. Our black lab, Jet, loves to play fetch with the boys, and the yellow lab, Buddy, loves to have his tummy scratched. Thommy is a very friendly and playful cat, and our newest edition is a small turtle named Flash.

Our Extended Family

We have a very large and close-knit family. Dan’s mother, brother, two sisters, and their children live close by, along with four aunts and uncles and their families. Stephanie’s dad, sister, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins also live very close by. We are blessed to be able to spend time with our families throughout the week. We spend holidays and special occasions surrounded by family and friends. Each December, we, along with Stephanie’s family, head to Florida for a week of fun on the beach. We spend our summers by the lake and enjoy trips to visit local attractions such as the zoo, Farm Park, and museums.

We have many family traditions, but the best ones are when we come together to celebrate holidays, special occasions, birthdays, lake days, and more. We enjoy apple picking in the fall, snowman building in the winter, an Easter Egg Hunt in the spring, and jet skiing and boating in the summer. Family is very important to us, and we want to pass this on to our children.

Our Adoption Story

Our lives have been touched by adoption in many ways. We were blessed with our son, Benjamin, through adoption. He has brought even more joy and love into our lives than we thought possible, and we cannot wait to share that joy and love with another child. Along with our son, Benjamin, Dan has four adopted cousins, and Stephanie has three adopted cousins. We have a loving, stable, and supportive environment, which we would love to share with another child. We are so grateful for the opportunity to adopt again.

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!
