dear expectant mother
Words cannot express how valuable you and your child(ren)’s lives are to us. Though we don’t know you yet, God knows you. He knows what you’ve been through, and he sees your heart. We honor you alongside Him for the brave and selfless decision you’ve made to bring life into this world, and we hold adoption in the highest regard as we ourselves are adopted children of God.
We know this journey is not going to be easy, but we can assure you that your child will be safe, protected, well educated, and cherished in a home that is rich in faith, fun, and love. Our hope is to surround your baby with the profound care and love you’ve shown them as you’ve formed your adoption plan and honor them as they are. Your baby will grow up in a home that values their talents, nourishes their curiosity, and shepherds them through all of life’s trials.
We may not understand the great depths of consideration and pain that go into a decision like this, but we honor you and the life within you as sacred. We promise that if given the opportunity to raise your child, we will live out each day with gratitude for the great blessing you have shared with us.
We are Nick and Danielle from sunny Southern California. We met in April 2015 and were married within five months. We chuckle that we met on Match.com, but as Danielle’s dad says, “This was a ‘match’ made in heaven.” It truly has been. With each year that passes, our relationship grows stronger and our love for one another deeper. Nick is hardworking, is trustworthy, and loves to learn new things. Danielle is honest, is a good cook, and loves to craft. We are both servants at heart and chose career paths that align with this core value. By day, Nick is a law enforcement officer and Danielle is a teacher, but by night, we’re Bible philosophers and house project DIY-ers. We love to read and discuss the Bible with family and friends and enjoy attending services at our local congregation. As for DIY-ing, we always joke that our best date nights are to Home Depot!
Our Home & Pets
We live in a beautiful city in Southern California, a short distance from the beach, mountains, Disneyland, and museums. We purchased a newly built home a few years back in a family-oriented suburban community, where they host family-friendly contests and events, such as Food Truck nights. Our nightly routine is to stroll through the community with our three-year-old pup, Logan, when we regularly see kids playing outside and families enjoying the toddler playground, community pool, and dog park. We also enjoy backyard BBQs with our neighbors and getting involved in community events. In fact, Danielle is proud to say that after convincing Nick to dress up as a candy cane one year, we won the Most Spirited Award at a 5K fundraiser.
Our Extended Family
We both have loving, supportive families who are excited for us to begin this journey. We live 25 minutes from Danielle’s mom and siblings and 45 minutes from her dad and stepmom. Nick is an only child, and his family is just a three-hour drive away.
Nick’s family loves spending quality time together. We remain in close contact through FaceTime and family visits, when we explore restaurants and shopping venues. We love ordering takeout, watching sports, and catching up on our favorite shows. Nick’s favorite childhood memories involve traveling to Europe for basketball and celebrating Christmas Eve with traditional German food: red cabbage, dumplings, and Oma’s poppyseed cake.
Danielle has a large extended family that loves to gather for celebrations and trips. She has a younger brother and sister, three step-sisters, a step-nephew, and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins. Her favorite childhood memories involve camping by the beach and large family parties filled with Mexican food and games like Scrabble and La Viuda, not to mention her mom’s famous chocolate gravy and biscuits on Christmas morning.
Our favorite new traditions since getting married are building Christmas Lego sets each year and hosting Good Friday celebrations. Most of our 18 cousins have children and are excited for us to welcome ours into the mix.
What Led Us To Adoption
Although we are unable to have biological children, we have faith that God has an amazing plan for building our family. Danielle has always had the seed of adoption planted in her heart, and through our journey of infertility, we have felt God’s hand leading us toward adoption all along. We have spent several years building a lifestyle we love, and whatever His plan is—a little one (or twins!)—we are open and excited to share this life we’ve built. We are in a stable place financially, physically, emotionally, and spiritually, and know that our 8 years of marriage has strengthened our relationship, family ties and support system.

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
