We have two dogs, Meatball and Harvey, whom we love to take on hikes and explore all the national parks and nature preserves in our area.
Our Home & Pets
Our home is very welcoming, with an open floor plan and lots of space for family gatherings. We have a great bedroom for a baby to grow up in. Our home sits on a corner lot, and we have a big yard with a lot of grass. Our neighborhood is full of young families with many children and dogs. It has walking paths, ponds, playgrounds, and a petting zoo. We are close to two hospitals, grocery stores, restaurants, and a children’s museum. There are many families out walking every day past our house. We have two dogs. Meatball is an English bulldog, and Harvey is a mini Labradoodle. They are already well known in the neighborhood, and all the kids love playing with them.
Our Extended Family
Matt grew up with a small family that has grown significantly as he has gotten older. Matt has one biological brother, two adopted brothers, and two stepsisters. Matt has a nephew who is fourteen and two nieces who are seven and nine whom we are very close with.
Joe grew up with a very large family. He is the oldest of three siblings, and each of his parents have four siblings. We jokingly say that most people you see in the small town he grew up in are his cousins. Joe has a niece and nephew who are four and one. Joe is the godfather to his nephew.
We love spending time with each other’s families as much as we can. We normally plan a family vacation each year with both sides of our families. We attend Joe’s family reunions each summer with hundreds of his family members and are planning to attend a large extended family reunion with Matt’s family in Italy in 2023.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have both always known we wanted a family of our own. When we started dating, our desire to have a family was one the things we bonded over. We quickly decided adopting was the right decision for us. We know we would be able to offer a loving, stable home to any child we are lucky enough to have join our loving family. We both already have experience with adoption. Matt has two younger brothers who were adopted by his parents through the foster care system. Joe is the godfather to his two cousins who were adopted as infants from Guatemala. He even went on four trips to Guatemala with his aunt and uncle during the adoption process.

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
