dear expectant mother
Our hearts are moved by the challenges you may be facing. Your selfless consideration of adoption, a gift we would be so blessed to receive, would leave us eternally grateful. We would be honored to open our home to your little one to continue what you started.
Should you choose us, your little one would have a father who, while very successful at work, puts time with his family first. He takes time off in the middle of his work day to come home and have family time. This season, he also rearranged work so he could coach Riley’s first t-ball team. Your little one would have a father whose top priority is being present in their life. And Esther…watch out. She is one fierce mama. Should you choose us, your little one will have a mom who will put the dishes aside to play chase, who comes up with fun adventures, and has one-on-one time with all her fellas to make sure they don’t just hear they are loved but they know it and feel it. Your little one is going to have a force of a mother on their side fighting for their heart. Our little boys have a saying: “Brothers, best friends for life!” They look forward to loving, playing, and protecting their future little brother or sister who will someday join in their chant.
Ten years ago Greg walked into the ballroom dance studio where Esther instructed and was hired. Greg was soon head over heels for her, but she was in love with work and never wanted to get married. Greg’s friendship, consistency, and character over the next three years won her heart. We have been happily married now for five years. Our family motto is “We fight for each other’s passions.” Greg hikes and rides bikes with Esther. Esther disc golfs and does sports activities with Greg. We both love good food, being goofy, traveling, and adventuring with our two boys (ages three and one). We can’t wait to welcome your little one to our team to learn about love and fight for their passions.
We live in a cute four-bedroom house with the best backyard ever! There’s a huge playset from the grandparents, a kiddy pool in the summers, and a firepit for the cooler part of the year. Inside, we play with the boys, Riley and Luca, all over the house. In the playroom, we play with puzzles, and blocks. The dining room is a hub for Play-Doh and finger painting. The nursery is full of giggles as we play chase and when it’s time to calm down, we read lots of books in Spanish and English as we are a bilingual family. We can’t wait to hear another little voice join the giggles and joy our house is full of.
Our Extended Family
Our whole family is excited we are welcoming a new little one into the family. On Greg’s side, we have his parents, sister, and adopted brother, who is married to a super cool girl. On Esther’s side, we have her parents and three brothers, two who are also married to cool girls. Every week we visit Esther’s brother and family of four. We play games, share funny stories, and eat together. The family members who live in other states come to visit once or twice throughout the year. They stay at our house, where we cook together (we love food) and play games.
For the holidays, we take turns traveling to one of our parents’ homes. Greg’s are in Minnesota, where we have a big family dinner and each of us are assigned a part to sing of “The 12 Days of Christmas.” It’s hilarious because most of us can’t sing. We laugh so hard. Esther’s parents are in the mountains of North Carolina. We watch Christmas movies, play a LOT of games, and make pozole and tamales together. Both families have different cultures and traditions for holidays. It’s so fun getting to experience a different set of traditions each year.
What Led Us To Adoption
When Esther was a little girl, she was adopted into a Hispanic household. She learned the culture and language like it was hers. She is so grateful to her father for making her not only feel like she is a part of the family but making her know she is family. Greg’s family has an adopted brother who in part inspired Greg to want to adopt. We both can’t wait to welcome our next little one to the family. We are excited to grow our family and know adoption is the path meant for us. Esther and the boys speak Spanish and English in the home, and they look forward to teaching a new little one how to experience the beauty in knowing multiple languages.

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
