Be assured that your decision to give life to your child is the greatest gift your child will ever receive; only you can give that to them. We imagine all the emotions you might be feeling一fear, uncertainty, love, confusion一and our feelings are similar as we search and wait to find the children we have prayed for. We completely empathize with you wanting the best for your child.
We are grateful that you have made this decision to give life to your child, and we pray you will find the best match of adoptive parents in us. We hope we are the couple to give your child a home, and we pray for you on your journey to find peace with your decision.
As parents, we will love your child as if they were of our own flesh. Your child will be surrounded by a loving, compassionate family who will help them to feel secure and happy while they are empowered to be the best person God has created them to be. They will learn about the world around them in play and exploration, and they will get to experience being a part of a family that seeks to serve others and better the world around them. They will grow strong physically, mentally, and emotionally knowing they are loved for the very person they are, and they will know that their birth mom loves them very much.
We are John and Denise. We met in 2012, and our paths led us to marriage two years later. The result was a newly blended family of three boys and three girls; three of them have since moved out on their own, so we cherish our time with those who are still at home. Denise, a teacher for 13 years, recently became a stay-at-home mom to be able to focus on the family. She enjoys cooking, gardening, and has an artistic streak that shows up in home projects. John is a successful patent attorney who loves to help others. We both volunteer in scouting, sports coaching, and teaching and mentoring youth in our parish and community. We love the outdoors and participate in kayaking, camping, backpacking, and running together as a family and couple. Family get-togethers for holidays, birthdays, and other celebrations and activities fill our monthly calendar.
Our Home & Pets
Our home is a two-story, four-bedroom home with extended open living space on the main floor that allows for large family gatherings for holidays. We are located in an area that is considered the suburbs, but surrounded by a few small farms. We love the atmosphere. Our neighborhood, fairly new, is filled with many young families and children. It is a very close-knit community that celebrates and socializes together throughout the year and keeps in contact with each other through Facebook. The local school district is high caliber, and there are numerous private schools within the vicinity of our home. There are many local metro parks and community activities available in our area. Annabelle, our 12-year-old puggle, loves to go for walks and sniff around the neighborhood.
Our Extended Family
We each come from large families. Denise is the oldest of six, and John is the second oldest of five children. There are over 34 nieces and nephews on both sides, including a few that are under the age of three. Three of our children are college graduates living on their own; one is married and living in Wisconsin with our first grandson, born May 2018. Our remaining children at home are finishing college. Our family is very supportive of our effort to adopt and is eager to welcome more children into the fold. We look forward to the house being filled with laughter and little feet running around, summer vacations, visiting the zoo, playing in the park, getting back into child-centered activities, and going out and about with small children again. Our families gather for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, Fourth of July, and for other family fun all year long. It is a joyful and noisy gathering of children and adults whenever we get together.
What Led Us To Adoption
We tried to conceive naturally but were unable to achieve a pregnancy. Due to our religious beliefs, IVF and other reproductive technologies were not options for us. As a newly married couple, we were deeply saddened over not being able to have more children, and we continued to pray about this over the last three years. We talked about adoption while dating, and after three years of trying to conceive, our faith led us to pursue adoption. Having come from large families, our desire to have the same loving home environment, filled with laughter and many children, made adoption a natural choice for us.

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
