dear expectant mother
This is a difficult letter to write to someone you haven't yet met, and we understand it's difficult for you to gain insight into our lives as well. We can only hope that you see how much love we have to give and that our only wish is for the opportunity to give it.
We promise your child will be happy and will know they are loved. Your child will know that they are adopted and they will know what a difficult decision their mother made and how much she loves them. We will teach them to enjoy life, and we will also teach them about love, respect, and hard work. Should you choose us to raise your child, you can be assured that they will have a happy and fulfilling life.
We appreciate you taking the time to learn about us, and we hope that you have enjoyed getting to see how we live our lives. We look forward to developing an honest relationship in the way that is most comfortable for you. We would be honored to meet you and continue with you on this journey. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, whatever decisions you make.
We met in 2013 and fell in love almost instantly. From our first date, we were inseparable and knew we never wanted to be apart, so we’ve spent our time together since then visiting family in different states, watching movies, hiking, and getting to know each other. We got married in 2018 and have been enjoying life together ever since. We take our marriage and our commitment to each other very seriously, as our desire is to maintain a love that lasts a lifetime. We believe that a stable family environment is important for a child and that showing love to each other is the best way to teach a child how to love. Even through the hard times of infertility, our love has remained strong. We knew we just had to stay patient and await God’s plan for our family to unfold.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a beautiful city in Wisconsin. Our quiet, safe, and family-friendly neighborhood is located just around the corner from our high school and just a couple blocks from the elementary and middle school. We have a three-bedroom, ranch-style home with a backyard that leads to the neighborhood park, and we have an above-ground pool that we love to share with family and friends! We also have three wonderful dogs who are very loving; we love to take them to our local parks, pumpkin patches, and festivities, and we wish one day that we can share the same activities with your baby.
Our Extended Family
We’re a family that loves to have fun! We spend a lot of quality time together, whether it’s just the two of us or if we’re with our extended family.
We both come from very large families. Josh has a three sisters, and Linnea has five brothers and two sisters. Having such a big family means there’s never a dull moment that goes by. We love being aunts and uncles to our nieces and nephews and love being with them on their birthdays, during sporting events, or for holidays. During the holidays, we love to spend a day baking and then sharing those baked good with our neighbors, having Easter egg hunts with the whole family, and going camping at the family land up north once a year!
Our families are so excited for us to be choosing adoption and are ready to welcome your baby into our family with their arms wide open! Out of our twenty nieces and nephews, our oldest nephew is twelve and our youngest ones are due on the exact same due date in 2019. They are all so excited to add yet another cousin into their lives.
What Led Us To Adoption
We’ve discussed adoption throughout the course of our relationship, even before we got married. As we struggled with infertility, it was something we mentioned time and time again; and even before infertility, adoption had a special place in our heart: Linnea’s parents adopted five of her cousins at a very young age so they would not be separated into different foster homes. After all of the failed attempts trying to conceive a child, we decided it was time to grow our family and start our journey into adoption.

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
