dear expectant mother
Thank you for considering adoption. While we do not know you, we are genuinely humbled by your courage and bravery to choose the best life possible for your baby.
We will provide financial security and a lifetime of positive and educational experiences. We will create a warm and nurturing environment with lots of toys, music, and stimulating activities. Jen loves to jog and would love to take the baby out with her in a running stroller. Jen’s grandfather built a cradle when she was born, and the cradle has been handed down to all the grandchildren and great-grandchildren over the years. We’d love to include that cradle in our nursery once we welcome a child.
We plan to introduce your child to all sorts of experiences, such as playing sports, learning to play an instrument, arts and crafts, and other educational hobbies. We look forward to making holiday cookies and opening gifts from Santa on Christmas morning.
The gift of adoption is the ultimate act of profound love and selflessness. We promise your baby would be loved, protected, and celebrated. We would also make sure he or she grows up knowing you are an amazing woman who placed the needs of her child above her own.
We are Jen and Paul, and we met at a dueling piano bar in Seattle. We were smitten at first sight and have been together ever since! Jen is a marketing director at a technology company headquartered in Germany. Paul is a stevedore at the waterfront. We love to travel, and we are fortunate to have had time to travel the world together. Whether it’s an international trip, a road trip close to home, or visiting family in other states, we love seeking new experiences and learning about other cultures. We’re very active and like to go golfing, biking, hiking, jogging, and boating. Getting outside and enjoying nature is always a priority for weekends. We enjoy listening to all kinds of music, whether it’s a concert or just a Saturday at home while making breakfast together. Jen grew up playing piano and hopes to teach our child to play someday.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a five-bedroom home in Washington. We have plenty of room for laughter, love, and play. We're planning to set up a nursery and a playroom when we welcome a child to our home. We have a nice big yard just waiting for some kiddos to head out and play! Our side yard has plenty of space for badminton, soccer, and a future swing set. (Oh, and there's a fire pit in the backyard for s’mores!) Our community has many accolades as a thriving community, but we like that it's been awarded as a safe place to live and raise a family. The local school district provides high-quality educational opportunities and has received several awards as well.
Our Extended Family
Jen’s parents met when they were 15 and are still happily married today. They live in Washington for six months out of the year, and we have them over for Sunday BBQs and to watch football games. The other six months of the year, they live in Hawaii, and we try to visit them once or twice in the winter months.Jen’s sister lives in New York with her husband and their three children, ages 8, 6, and 3. She is a pediatrician, and her husband trades commodities. Jen and her sister are very close, so we travel out to the East Coast a few times a year for holidays and family time.
Paul grew up in a wonderful home in Washington where he spent the first 20 years of his life with his loving parents and older brother. His parents have since passed away, but he continues to see his brother and niece and nephews.
We are also lucky to have extended family in places throughout the country, such as Colorado, North Carolina, California, and Tennessee. There is never a lack of invitations to join family for holidays!
What Led Us To Adoption
We’ve both always wanted children but just never found the right partner until we met each other. We tried for a child biologically for about a year, but due to infertility issues, a biological child is not an option. We are so excited to be on this journey and to finally fulfill our dream of growing our family. The gift of adoption is the ultimate act of profound love and selflessness. We promise your baby will be loved, protected, and celebrated. We will also make sure he or she grows up knowing you are an amazing woman who placed the needs of her child above her 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
