dear expectant mother
We understand adoption can be a challenging time and want to respect the emotions you may be feeling. We are grateful you love your child so much you are considering an adoption plan for their future. As you face this decision, we want you to know you are wrapped in love by two strangers who would be honored to meet you and welcome your child into their home.
Please know we can offer this little one a stable and unconditionally loving home; a supportive family with many aunts, uncles, and cousins; and a thriving community of friends and opportunities. We are fortunate to be in a place in our life that allows one of us to work in the home while the other one can be flexible. It takes a village to raise a child, and we are so thankful to have our chosen family alongside us. We would gladly encourage and support this child in learning about and carrying on any traditions that may be important to you as well.
We hope that throughout our profile, you see the love we have for each other and our family and that our community of friends has for us. It is our desire to walk alongside you in this journey. It would be our honor to care for your child as our own and fulfill all the dreams you want for them.

Our names are Daniel and Jordan. We currently live in Illinois with our dog, Jasper. The highlight of our life was being married in 2020 in front of the people we love the most! Daniel is a Client Benefits Manager helping large companies handle health and retirement benefits throughout the United States. Jordan is Director of Fundraising for a non-profit that serves youth and families in Illinois. Outside of our jobs, we both have hobbies we enjoy together as well as individually. We both love the outdoors! We camp, kayak, hike, and bike. This year we also participated in the community garden. Daniel is very knowledgeable about grilling and smoking food. He loves to research new recipes involving meat and veggies. Jordan often does community theater and enjoys partnering with friends on various productions. He also likes to volunteer in the community at festivals and events.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a spacious, two-bedroom townhome in a small neighborhood at the end of a winding street with a cul-de-sac. Daniel is on the Homeowners Association Board and focuses on keeping our little neighborhood quiet and tidy. Our neighborhood has a lot of young families with children of different ages. Our town has multiple parks, beaches, and forest preserves, which are all connected with bike paths. Our community prides itself with being known for its beautiful and historic downtown which offers many family-friendly festivals throughout the year! Jordan is very involved with our town’s Chamber of Commerce and local school district. Jasper is our fur baby. He is a nine-year-old mixed Rhodesian Ridgeback. He is very loyal and loves kids and other dogs.
Our Extended Family
Daniel’s mother and father just celebrated their 45th wedding anniversary! He is the oldest of three siblings with a younger sister and brother who are all close in age. His family is very close and celebrates holidays, camps, and enjoys just hanging out on the random weekend! Daniel has a large extended family he is also close to.
Jordan grew up in a family of eight and is the youngest of six children. He is especially close to his oldest sister, her husband, and their two boys. Jordan also has a large extended family.
Between our two families, we have thirteen nieces and nephews whom we selfishly spoil during birthdays and holidays. Speaking of holidays, one of our favorite family traditions is to make homemade perogies at Christmas. We all have specific tasks, from making and rolling to stuffing the dough. Dan’s dad is always in charge of boiling the perogies! We look forward to introducing our child to this family tradition.
What Led Us To Adoption
In the five years we have been together, we have had wonderful experiences with family and friends who have adopted children. From those experiences, we are very excited to welcome a child into our home. Jordan was adopted from Romania as a newborn and understands the uniqueness of growing up as an adopted child. Our friends recently adopted a child, and we have loved being around her. They have shared with us many exciting stories about being parents! We value this friendship, and after understanding all the ways we could build our family, we both agreed that adopting a child was right 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!
