dear expectant mother
We are incredibly humbled that you have chosen to read our profile and hope you find everything you’re looking for in an adoptive family. There aren’t words enough to express our joy at the thought of being able to raise your precious child. We sincerely admire your strength and courage as you embark upon this journey.
Our home is full of love and laughter and we can’t wait to share our zest for life with your child. Sweet and savory smells often waft from the kitchen and your little one’s hands will most assuredly get messy, as they help create some tasty treat. They will experience the thrill of cheering on their favorite team from the stands. Their eyes will light up as we embrace the wonders of the world, from exploring our own backyard to connecting with cultures from around the globe. We look forward to sharing our love of learning, our sense of adventure, and our enchantment with the outdoors. Our hearts are full at the thought of raising your child in a warm and loving home where the values of compassion, understanding, and empathy are firmly rooted. Your child will be endlessly supported as they pursue their dreams. We dare to be silly, rush to encourage each other, and support one another in every aspect of our lives. We can’t wait to do the same with your baby.
Thank you so much for considering us. We genuinely respect you and want you to know that your child will always understand how exceptional you are. Our hearts and home will eternally be open as we welcome you to have the relationship that you are most comfortable with within our family. We appreciate you taking the time to learn more about us.
We met right out of college in a chance encounter at a wings and ribs joint in Tiffany’s hometown (she was a vegetarian at the time; go figure!). Just one look into each other’s eyes was all it took. We felt so comfortable and safe with one another, baring our souls and daring to dream. Now, twenty years later, we continue to love and respect each other as deeply as ever. Our careers, passion for travel, and love of life and laughter have connected us from the core of our souls and have guided our journey together in an incredibly magical way.
Tiffany works as a Development Director at a homeless shelter. Her selflessness is her most prominent feature, which has fueled her passion for supporting those most in need in our community. She is quick to find the humor in things and always sees the positive in any moment.
Glenn is a teacher and finds the energy of his middle schoolers invigorating. His investment in their growth, development, and success, both in classroom and real world contexts, has defined his craft. He is warm and compassionate and those around him are quickly drawn to his calm and engaging presence.
Our Home & Pets
We are incredibly fortunate to live in a vibrant and culturally rich neighborhood in Chicago. Lake Michigan is steps from our front door and the beautiful lakefront is chock full of parks, trails, playgrounds, and a fabulous zoo. There’s always something going on in the city, including concerts, street festivals, sporting events, museum exhibits, and theater performances. We’re also lucky enough to have a second home near Boulder, CO, nestled sweetly in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. It is here that we find true peace, escaping into the tranquility of nature to hike, bike, or run through rich pine forests, past pristine lakes and clear mountain streams, and under the shadows of looming craggy peaks.
Our Extended Family
We are incredibly blessed, and eternally grateful, to come from families who have supported us in every imaginable way. They have inspired our sense of wanderlust and adventure, cultivated our curiosity and zest for life, and impressed upon us the importance of seeing the world through varying perspectives while being kind, empathetic, and caring. They have also instilled in us the values of education and hard work. We’ve been so fortunate to have been able travel extensively throughout the US and abroad with siblings, parents, and grandparents, experiencing the richness and beauty of cultures different from ours.
Holidays are important to us and remain a time for reconnecting, as relatives come from all corners of the country to celebrate each other. Warm moments are filled with love and laughter and stories from our past are retold with delight. Our parents continue to engage in numerous activities, ranging from singing and performing to skiing and boating. The love, support, and encouragement we’ve received throughout our lives has been bountiful and has allowed us to pursue our dreams and passions with confidence and certainty. We knew our families would be excited by the news of our decision to adopt, but could never have expected how overcome with joy they were.
What Led Us To Adoption
As early as our first few dates, we spoke of wanting to have children and the joy we knew they’d bring. We even dared to delve into late night naming sessions and pondering who our kids would grow up to be. Our careers and our passions have always led us towards nurturing children and we’ve been very intentional about our pursuits. From teaching for decades to managing an emergency children’s home, we have found our greatest bliss in the company of kids. After years of attempting and failing to conceive, including two miscarriages, we’ve decided to pursue adoption in hopes of being able to provide unconditional love, support, and stability to a child of our own.

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
