We are loving potential parents who can’t wait to start building our future with a little bundle of joy. We look forward to a life of happiness, growing pains, adventure, learning, and love.
We cannot express enough our gratefulness to you. We wish we could understand a fraction of what you must be going through and what has led you to the decision to consider adoption. Our hearts are with you. We would love the opportunity to be the people you choose to raise your child.
When we say “our,” we mean all of us. We hope you would be a part of our lives too, if that is something you want. We know the difficult decisions ahead of you as you plan for your baby’s future, and we hope you allow us the honor of being part of your plan.
We promise to raise your baby in a safe home, filled with love and lots of cuddles and laughs. We promise a life of adventure and thoughtful educational experiences.
We hope you feel a connection with us and we look forward to getting to know you.
We met online and we knew we would have an amazing life together with more love than we have ever known. It has not always been an easy road and we are so grateful for this life together. We appreciate where we are now and want to share our life and our love with a child. Bonnie is a teacher and Heather is an Athletic Administrator at the university level. We both love our careers. We are both quick witted and sarcastic and find ourselves always laughing, enjoying life’s humor.
We love to live life to the fullest, whether that is traveling the world or exploring activities nearby. We enjoy walking and biking on trails, in our neighborhood, or at our cottage in the woods of Wisconsin. The cottage is a special place where Bonnie spent many summers as a child and we can’t wait to share it with your child. We love to enjoy life’s experiences, like seeing shows, visiting orchards, going mini golfing (we are both great mini golfers, so your child would be a pro!), going hiking, and having backyard barbeques. We also love to go to Blackhawks, Cubs, Brewers, and Bears games. When it comes to football, we have a friendly rivalry between us: Heather is a Packers fan but Bonnie is a Bears fan!
Our Home & Pets
We live in a beautiful neighborhood with an open land park across the street from our house. Our town is rural, but just ten minutes away from suburban amenities, and only a hour away from Chicago. Our community has a great small-town feel with fantastic schools. Our neighbors are friendly and there are tons of kids on our street and throughout the neighborhood. We love when we go for a walk, people say hi and wave.
Max and Gus are our fur babies. They are spoiled beyond belief, mostly because they are so cute and cuddly. They are two of the most affectionate cats we have ever had and they will love having a baby in the house.
Our Extended Family
Our families are complete opposites, which adds to our character. Heather has a big family, who live two hours north of us. Heather’s parents are incredibly dedicated grandparents. She has one sister, who is married with a son and daughter, and many aunts, uncles, and cousins. Family get-togethers are large events, but they all remain very close. Many of Heather’s cousins have younger children and we are excited about the possibility of having our own child grow with them. Heather’s niece and nephew are in elementary school and enjoy playing hockey!
Bonnie’s family is much smaller. Her parents have both passed away. Her brother and sister, who are much older, both have adult children of their own. Bonnie’s nieces include a teacher and a lawyer. Her younger nephew has special needs and just got his first job! Her older nephew, who is also her godson, is an incredible tap dancer in Boston. We have loved watching them all grow up.
Our family support is amazing. From Heather’s amazingly selfless and kind parents to our siblings, nieces, nephews, large extended family, and many loving friends, your child would be surrounded by so much love. They are all supportive of and super excited about our journey.
What Led Us To Adoption
Adoption has always been the way we wanted to grow our family, both individually and as a couple. One of Bonnie’s best friends was adopted and friends of ours adopted their two boys, all with very happy outcomes. Adoption was also a choice we knew we would make only after we found the right person to share the experience with. We met later in life, enough to have experienced enough life to know when it was the right time. We are ready for this journey and hope to share it with you.

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
