dear expectant mother
First of all, how are you? How are you feeling? How has the pregnancy been? Secondly, thank you. Thank you for considering us in your process of choosing the best fit for you and your baby. We know it is not an easy decision to make. We are so appreciative to be considered as potential parents.
It is a new experience for us to be on this side of the adoption. Adoption is not a foreign word in our families, growing up or now. It was always seen as a wonderful gift that a birth mother can offer another family. We are so grateful to our birthmothers for choosing our adoptive parents. We would love to give back and offer the best, loving, supportive family to a child and mother in need.
We are so excited to get to know who you are and welcome your child into our family. We currently have two biological children and had issues with our last pregnancy. They’re two very happy boys who would love a sibling. Please know your child will be so loved. They will be welcomed into our family with open arms and full hearts. We can’t thank you enough for considering us in your journey to find parents to be the best fit for your baby.
Nick and Diana
We met in college through a mutual friend and started dating years later when Diana moved back home and reconnected with Nick. We immediately knew we wanted to spend our lives together. We have two little boys and are hoping to add one more bundle of joy to our family. Diana loves to cook and is a food stylist by profession (a “make-up” artist for food used in commercials). She is also head of operations at a home goods store and bakery. She loves to entertain and create delicious dishes. Nick is active and an outdoor enthusiast. He stays busy playing sports, camping, and hanging out at the lake. He is the lead project manager for a residential remodeling company. He is also generous with his time helping out family and friends with house projects. Although work is important to us, nothing is more important than family.
We have a lovely home that has four bedrooms. Each child will have their own room. The best part of where we live, honestly, isn’t the house; it is the neighborhood. We love our neighborhood because it is a handful of young families with kids who are all within the same age of our own. You can find us most weekends hanging out together, playing with the kids together, and having a really great time at the nearby park or someone's backyard or taking turns hosting playdates. We also have a pet-friendly neighborhood with lots of dogs. We have a small rescue dog who is really kind and gentle. He is a bit of a grandpa and sleeps most of the day.
Our Extended Family
Both our families live close by, except for Diana’s younger brother, who lives in another state with his wife and their child. Diana’s older brother lives just six minutes away with their three children. Both of our parents are also nearby. Nick has a very large extended family as well that is nearby. Diana’s extended family is all over the country.
We are very close to our family, especially those who are local. We love to spend holidays together and frequently see each other. Nick’s mother loves her time with her grandchildren. She has a day each week that she gets to get her quality time in with each grandchild and looks forward to blocking out another day for her next grandchild.
We also enjoy traveling together. We have a goal to go to a new destination every year, mostly domestic trips, but we love to visit other countries as well to get immersed in other cultures.
We have family dinners together every night. We love to have extended family get-togethers, from the random phone call get-togethers to the regular Sunday morning waffles with Papa Pat. We always make sure to carve out the time to eat together.
Our Adoption Story
We were both adopted. Diana was adopted from South Korea at around three months old, and Nick was adopted as a newborn. We have two biological children but had some health difficulties with our last pregnancy, which resulted in a premature baby. (Our little man is thriving, and you would never know he was a preemie!) We had issues with our first pregnancy as well. As a result, we are no longer able to safely have any more biological children. Before we had children we discussed how amazing it would be to adopt, to grow our family the same way our families grew. When we had health issues with our second pregnancy, it was an easy choice to start the adoption process.

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
