There are no words to describe how grateful we are that you are considering us as adoptive parents for your precious child. We have a tremendous amount of respect for you and can’t imagine how difficult a decision this is. From the first time we talked about marriage, we knew we wanted to have several children. We both come from large families. We adopted our first child a little over three years ago. It was one of the most amazing experiences in our lives, and we can't wait to have that feeling again. If you choose us as adoptive parents, there are so many people waiting to love this little one so much, besides the three of us. Your child will never be lacking love.
We know this decision is not an easy one to make. We deeply want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
We were set up by a mutual friend in 2004. We have been inseparable from that day forward. We were married in September 2008. We are a very loving family and would love nothing more than to add another child to it. We adopted Olivia a little over three years ago and it has changed our lives for the better. We think the only thing that could compare is the day we got married. As a family, we love to spend time outdoors and swimming in our pool. Olivia would love nothing more than a sibling to play with. In fact, she cannot stop talking about it. David is a successful business owner and Stacy is a stay at home mom and a hairstylist. The fact that David built a salon in their home so she could always be with Olivia shows the type of family we are and why we want to expand.
Our Home & Pets
We own a three-bedroom raised ranch in a suburb of Chicago. Upstairs is an open floor plan with all bedrooms, and downstairs is a family/toy room and a laundry room. Connected to the laundry room is a hair salon for Stacy to continue cutting the hair of friends and family. While we love the inside of our house, our favorite part is the backyard. The yard is on the larger side, with a two-tier deck that extends from the house the pool. The entire yard is fenced in with a six-foot cedar privacy fence. Our neighborhood has many parks and splash pads within walking distance. Summer Fest is held two blocks from our home, allowing us to watch fireworks from the backyard and parades from our front porch.
Our Extended Family
We both come from large families, David is one of five and Stacy is one of seven. We have 19 nieces and nephews, and two more are on the way. We all enjoy getting together any chance we get, especially for the holidays. With all the exciting bustle, whether it’s the Easter egg hunt with over 1000 eggs, the dance party dance-off at Christmas, the multitude of games/activities with summer holidays, or just a birthday party (pretty much one every week), our animated life is surrounded by family and love.
Since the adoption of Olivia, we’ve started a holiday tradition special to our family. Every year we go to the arboretum for “Illumination,” the Christmas light spectacular. It’s a mile long trail with over one million lights. There are campfires, music, and hot chocolate.
We try to make every night board game night. We turn off all electronics and spend a little quality time on the floor playing games, from silly games like Pop the Pig and Hungry Hungry Hippos to Candy Land and Hi Ho Cherry-O.
What Led Us To Adoption
Adoption was always something close to our hearts. However, we really started exploring the possibility of adoption while seeing an infertility doctor. We had been pregnant six times, but the seventh went full term before losing our son. While pregnant, we discussed the possibility of adoption for our second child. Stacy’s father was adopted and she has always been drawn to adoption because of that. David’s father spent most of his childhood in foster care, which pushed us towards the amazing process of adoption. After our son passed away, we decided our heartache led us to the amazing journey of adopting our daughter Olivia. Almost nine months to the day we lost our son, we were holding our beautiful daughter. We couldn’t imagine our lives without her.

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
