We are Michael and Elena from Maryland. We met in April 2005 through mutual friends and were married in the summer of 2007. We enjoy spending time outdoors, hiking, fishing, skiing, and biking. We have two wonderful boys and our golden retriever, George, and we always go everywhere together. Elena is a gymnastics coach and has been working with children for over twenty years, and Michael works from home in IT. We own a home in a kid-friendly suburban neighborhood, just 30 minutes outside of the city. Michael’s hobbies include fishing and spending time outdoors as well as rooting for his favorite hockey team. Elena also loves the outdoors and especially enjoys traveling and the beach. We are a great team and try to spend all our free time together.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom single family home in the suburbs of Washington D.C. Our neighborhood is very family friendly with a lot of kids of all ages. We have great schools in the area and our kids love their school, teachers and classmates. Michael’s parents live very close to us. Only 5 min drive. And our extended family is within a 30 min drive. We have super loving and friendly Golden Retriever George who was named after the first American President George Washington. We have a big backyard with a firepit, patio area, kids’ toys and a fenced garden where we plant vegetables, berries, fruits and herbs.
Our Extended Family
Family is important to both of us. We have a lot of different traditions within the family. Mike’s sister and her family host Thanksgiving dinner, and we gather to share super-delicious homemade food and play games. For Christmas, we usually go to Pennsylvania with Elena’s sister and her boyfriend and have fun in the snow doing winter sport activities. For birthday celebrations, we gather together in our house and cook something and either play outside games like soccer and hide and seek or play board games like Catan and Monopoly.
We speak Russian and English at home. Our immediate families were from the Soviet Union and remember the Russian language. We travel abroad to Mexico, where we love to spend time on the beach and snorkeling. Our families are big and different, but we always support and help each other. We are even different in religion. Michael’s family is Jewish, and Elena’s family is Christian. We respect and cherish our differences.
What Led Us To Adoption
Very early on in our relationship, we knew we wanted a large family. We were blessed with two wonderful kids and have so much more love to give. However, in 2020 Elena was diagnosed with vasculitis. Even after Elena’s autoimmune disease was brought under control, doctors advised not to get pregnant due to the high risk of health complications. At that moment, our dream of having another baby melted away. It was a hard time for our family until we started considering adoption. We believe in spiritual connections and that adoption is a miracle. We are ready to share our life with our future children and are very grateful for the opportunity to grow our family.

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!
