dear expectant mother

Dear Expectant Mother,

We don’t pretend to know you or your journey or think this may be easy, so we are honored and humbled by your consideration to allow us to be the best champions and teachers of this blessing from you. We truly would embrace the opportunity to become part of your life and you in ours, at whatever level you are comfortable with.

Our promise to you is to hear you and to value you as you matter to us. Our promise to your child is to provide a loving home and always be there to catch them when they fall. We promise to be the most outrageous cheerleaders, to support your child in any way possible, and for your child to reach his or her utmost potential and dreams.

Having grown up in large families and looking back, love and joy are always what comes to mind, along with a long list of traditions and time spent as a family. What seemed like chores leading up to Christmas, from baking all sorts of cookies and making candy to going out to pick the perfect Christmas tree, are all traditions we find ourselves doing each year now, and we can’t wait to pass down and share these with a child of our own.

We hope you find peace in the next steps of your journey. We understand your journey (like ours) is unknown, and we welcome the opportunity to get to meet you.

With love,
Jakob & Michael

About Us

We first met over five years ago during a Wilson Phillips concert. Jakob was visiting Phoenix from Denver. You may say the universe was pulling us together since Mike was in the process of moving to Denver. Not only that, Mike had been traveling to Denver to help manage a nursing home you could see from Jakob’s house. Mike would travel with his dog Wrigley and often walked by Jakob’s house without ever meeting. We felt it was meant to be. It was an instant connection, and we felt like we already knew each other. Life together has been full of love and laughter. Jakob is known as the “gentle giant” as he is 6’5” and has the patience and love of a saint. Michael has a heart of gold and a contagious personality; he is very caring and considerate.

Our Home & Pets

Our three-bedroom home is located in a family-friendly neighborhood in CA. We love our open floor plan with lots of space and an additional family room to lounge and play in. We have a beautiful backyard with a large deck and BBQ often! Our dogs, Wrigley (a 13-year-old dachshund) and Rudy (a six-year-old pointer/Great Dane mix), love the large yard. Both our dogs are nursing home trained and love being around people to emotionally support them. They have their own unique personalities and are great with children. Our neighborhood is full of parks and trails, so whether we are going for a quick walk around the block or wish to explore nature, the area has both at our doorsteps!

Our Extended Family

We both have large extended families consisting of several brothers, sisters, nieces, and nephews. Jakob is originally from Denmark and comes from a family of seven kids and now 23 nieces and nephews. Mike grew up in Wisconsin with his brother and sister and now has four nieces and nephews.

Growing up was full of traditions, from Easter egg scavenger hunts and Christmas traditions to family vacations and lots of celebrations that seemed like they were just a reason for everyone to get together.

All the amazing traditions we have seen our brothers and sisters pass down to their children we now hope to do as well while also creating new, unique ones for our family. Both our families share our excitement and are overjoyed for us to adopt. They can’t wait to meet the new addition to the family.

What Led Us To Adoption

It’s been a lifelong dream for both of us to be parents and raise a child. We have seen many close friends go through the adoption process, and it’s been a blessing to see the love and joy this has brought into their lives. We feel adoption is the right way to make our dream a reality. Family is a feeling of belonging and where unconditional love exists, so to us, it doesn’t matter if we share the same DNA. Both our wedding vows included starting a family. Having started the adoption process, we feel how close we are to this, and each day puts a big smile on our faces.

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!
