dear expectant mother
We know you love your child so much to make this hard decision. It is one of the hardest and selfless decisions you can make for your baby. We appreciate being considered as an option to raise your child. We would promise to raise her to be a good person with great morals. We would let her show us who she wants to be and would be supportive of the path she chooses. We will encourage activities outside of school and do our best to provide the opportunities.
Your child will feel very loved by us and all of the extended family. She will not feel different or less than at any time in their life. We will provide a loving home and welcoming place for her to grow up. She will be encouraged to try new things, and we will be there with her every step of the way. Your baby will have two big brothers and a big sister to love her, grow up with her, and support her in her journeys. She will be the baby of the family as she will be our last child.
Thank you so much for reading our family’s profile and considering us as an option. You are a great mother already by choosing adoption for your baby, no matter what your reasons are. It takes amazing strength to make this decision. If we are chosen to raise her, we will make sure she knows the decision was made purely out of love.
We have been married for 16 years now, and our main focus is raising our children together. Ben retired from the military four years ago to be a full-time stay-at-home dad. His military career let him travel many places and allowed him to see the world. He loves being a full-time daddy and assistant to Darcie’s at-home job. Darcie runs an in-home daycare, caring for infants and children up to four years old. Having an in-home daycare allows both of us the ability to be full-time parents and have an income. Our entire family participates in the Special Olympics as participants, partners, or coaches. We love to be part of this special community. We love playing board games and going on adventures together as a family.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a small town on the water in Washington. We love the small but close community feeling of it. We own a four-bedroom home with two living rooms. Each child has their own room that was designed by them. Our dining room and second living room are playrooms for the daycare and our children. Our main living room has a crib and dresser all ready for a baby. That way she will always be right where we are. We have a very large backyard with play structures and a chicken coop. We also have three cats and a German shepherd, who loves the children.
Our Extended Family
We grew up very differently with different traditions. We did not let go of any of our traditions; we just combined them. Ben grew up in Ohio in a Filipino family. His mom was always cooking traditional Filipino foods and always had enough to feed the neighborhood. With his three brothers and one sister, gatherings were loud and fun. Darcie’s parents divorced while she was young. They both remarried and she has a total of two brothers, one half-sister, and seven step-siblings.
We have very large families full of people who are excited for a new family member. Our favorite family tradition we created as a family is what we do at Christmas. We open one gift on Christmas Eve and have a large meal with anyone who can come over. We have a table of ham, turkey, sweet potatoes, and stuffing. We also have a table with steamed rice, fried rice, and lumpia. Our favorite meals are all together with both sides of our family. We would love to add some new foods based on our new daughter’s heritage.
Our Adoption Story
Our family has been blessed by adoption in many positive ways. We always dreamed of having two biological and two adopted children. We have three children, two biological sons and one adopted daughter. We could not imagine life without any of them. We are so excited to welcome another little girl into our hearts and family. Darcie has a half-sister on her father’s side whom she met as an adult as she was placed for adoption as an infant. Our family was able to locate her, and the connection has been great for everybody. We love all of our children equally and have so much more love to offer.

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
