dear expectant mother
Thank you so much for considering us. We are excited for the opportunity to provide a caring, loving home for your child. It means the world to us that you care so much for your unborn child that you are taking the time to find the best adoptive parents for him or her. We love children so much, and we look forward to adding more good to the world by raising one to be the best person he or she can be.
We have a three-year-old niece named Madison who we adore. We enjoy taking her out to explore the world; however, at the end of the day, we have to bring her back home and our hearts break. We would love to have a child of our own who we could take out for short hikes, to amusement parks, or on educational trips.
Erika attended a daycare as a child at which her mom works. Because Erika continued volunteering and then working at the daycare, she has an understanding of the mental, physical, cognitive, love, and spiritual needs that every child needs to develop to his or her full potential. Daniel sees these needs and comes up with great ideas on how to support their development. Working together, I know we will do our best to raise a child to be a happy, loving, and caring member of society. We hope that this glimpse into our lives helps you in taking the next step in your adoption journey, and whether our journeys continue on from here, please know that our appreciation for your bravery knows no bounds.
We met multiple times before really taking the time to get to know each other, though each run-in presented another shared interest. We have been married for eight years now. We enjoy volunteering at a local animal shelter, evaluating and training dogs in order to find the right type of family for each one. As much as we enjoy helping these dogs find homes, we find it even more fulfilling that we get to do these things together. Erika also enjoys knitting, baking, rollerblading and going to amusement parks while Daniel enjoys computer programming, biking, cooking, and playing and watching sports.
Professionally, Daniel is a software developer. He writes code on the computer to support a large investment company. He oversees a lot of employees and designs projects to make programs run smoothly and efficiently. Erika is a Mathematics teacher and loves finding new ways to teach the material so that more students can learn to understand and love math like she does.
Our Home & Pets
After getting married, we began saving to buy a house in which we could raise children, and we have finally found it! It’s a 4 bedroom house in the same neighborhood that Erika grew up in. With so many rooms, we look forward to setting up one as a playroom. Our house sits on a very quiet road that is within walking distance from multiple parks, a small pizza place and a farm where we can feed the goats and get ice cream. Our house also includes a large, fenced in backyard where our dogs, who we adopted from the shelter at which we volunteer, enjoy running around in. We intend to put up a swingset and play system in this yard for our children when they get old enough. Our dogs are well-trained, very respectful, and love children of all ages!
Our Extended Family
We both grew up with an older sister. They actually went to school together for a while. Daniel's mother passed away when he was young. While he experienced the tragic loss of a mother, he also got to experience the joy of accepting a step-mother into his life. He has a very close relationship with his father, and visits his parents regularly. Erika's parents divorced and her father moved out of the house when she was about thirteen years old. She learned to welcome her step-father into her life a while later. While Erika has always been close to her mother, we both still visit and talk with her father as well.
Daniel's sister has two boys of her own, while Erika's sister has a daughter and another baby on the way. Daniel's sister's family lives far away, so we get together with them every few months and talk with them a lot to keep up with the boys. Erika's sister's family lives very close to us. Their daughter actually attends the daycare at which she and Erika grew up. We enjoy going to the zoo, out to eat, and just hanging out with all of our family.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have both been interested in adopting children for many years now. We would like to raise a child from infancy to experience the joys of every stage in the child's life. After adopting a baby, we plan to find the right sibling to mesh with that child and the family as a whole, possibly through foster care. We just can’t wait to share all the love we have to give.

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
