dear expectant mother
As potential adoptive parents, we thank you for taking your time to learn a bit about us. We are ready for a little one and are excited to experience the joys of parenting. Sharing this experience with you would be amazing, and we would be so lucky if you chose us.
Our hearts are full of love and laughter, and we simply can’t wait to share that with a child. It is our job to make sure your child always understands your decision was based on both love and your hope that he or she will live their best possible life. Your choosing us to be your child’s parents would be our incredible honor.
We promise to always be present and involved and to do the best we can every day. We have our ducks in a row and are ready to go: We have chosen a pediatrician, we took a pediatric CPR class this past November, and there is a marvelous daycare facility less than two miles from our home where we can send our child two days/week when one of us doesn’t work from home.
We wish you the best on your journey, and we know it’s not an easy one. We would love to be part of it and look forward to possibly hearing from you.
We met online, and it really was love at first sight. In Dasha’s words, Zach is simply amazing and the love of my life. He is kind, caring and generous and the funniest guy I know. He works hard in the mortgage industry so we can live our best life. When he sets a goal, he accomplishes it! Zach is always there for you when you need him, and he will be an incredible dad leading by example. In Zach’s words, Dasha is my rock. She is the most wonderful, caring and giving person. She has a huge heart, and I know she is going to be an amazing mother! She loves to laugh and dances like no one’s watching. We love golfing, cooking/baking/grilling, gardening and going to the gym together.
Our Home & Pets
We live in Minnesota in a wonderful family neighborhood we chose because the school districts are always top rated. Our community is full of families with kids of all ages! We have many parks and trails just down the road and a lake across the way from us. The neighbors tie their pontoons together in the summer for the Fourth of July fireworks, and we ice skate on the lake in the winter. Our home is warm and welcoming, with a great yard to run around in. Our favorite rooms are the kitchen and living room, which are connected and open and the hub where friends and family always gather. Our puggle, Mr. Bo Jangles, just turned 13 and can’t wait to be a big brother!
Our Extended Family
In our family, we are thankful, we give second chances, we give hugs, we laugh a lot, we are real, we never give up on each other, and we love unconditionally. Our family and friends are so supportive of our journey—and have been every step of the way.
We love celebrating holidays with our families—both Christmas and Hanukkah—and are so excited to teach our little one about the traditions we grew up with. Thanksgiving is huge, whether we’re hosting in Minnesota or with our family in Texas.
We try to cook dinner every night together—grabbing new recipes from our mothers’ cookbooks, trying things from friends, and repeating the oldies but goodies. We love our lives together, goofing around and laughing till we cry, setting up friendly competitions (best pumpkin carver, farthest golf drive, game nights), and, of course, having someone to make Sunday breakfast for.
What Led Us To Adoption
After we got married in 2017, we immediately tried to expand our family. We tried naturally and then moved on to IVF. After two unsuccessful attempts, we knew adoption was our true path. We know family isn’t always blood. Family is those who would do anything to see you smile and who love you no matter what. We have always made sure we are there to support each other. With the strong foundation we have built, we know we can accomplish anything together. We are committed to this journey and consider it a privilege to be part of yours.

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
