dear expectant mother
We cannot tell you enough how grateful we are to you for considering us to be parents to your baby. We admire your courage in considering adoption and the strength it takes to trust someone with creating a loving and safe home for your baby. We want to assure you that your child will be loved and cared for by our whole family.
We have a lot of love surrounding us as a couple and as a family, so the decision to welcome another baby and offer that love came very naturally to us. We feel that being surrounded by experts in the field of adoption as well as Gabriel having experienced adoption himself and being the stepdad to Justyna’s son makes us ready to take on this journey. We are open to as much communication as you feel comfortable with and will welcome you to our family as we welcome your baby.
We would like to offer a loving home where the whole family is active, health-conscious, and engaged. We value education and would actively work to create educational opportunities for your baby. With Gabriel being a personal trainer and Justyna becoming a family nurse practitioner, we hope to set good examples for our kids. We love to laugh and enjoy every moment together and would like to share that with your baby as well. We feel blessed by the opportunity you are considering giving us and will be forever thankful for the new addition to our family.
We met while working on an ambulance and instantly clicked. Gabriel is now a personal trainer, and Justyna is an emergency room nurse (soon to be a nurse practitioner) and also teaches at a college. Gabriel works out every day and follows nutritional guidelines while keeping our family active and engaged in health-conscious practices. Justyna is more of a bookworm and promotes education in our family. She also loves going to the opera with her aunt. She volunteers at the Search and Rescue division and is a family photo keeper who creates photo books of our adventures. Family comes first for us. We love traveling and most recently went to the Grand Canyon. In the winter, we like watching movies, cooking with our kids, and playing board games. In the summer, we enjoy walks, bicycling to local parks, and kayaking on the nearby lake.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a small town in Illinois, situated among hills and lakes. The community is family-oriented, with safe neighborhoods and good schools. We are surrounded by nature and all kinds of shops and restaurants. The elementary school is just a short walk away. Our kids attend Polish school every Friday night, and they are engaged in all kinds of different activities, including soccer, gymnastics, and rollerblading. We live in a two-story, three-bedroom house with a big, kid-friendly backyard and a vegetable garden. We converted half of our basement into a kids’ play area. We have one dog: a Shih Tzu-Maltese named Lilly that we love to take for walks around our neighborhood.
Our Extended Family
Our two sons are Nicholas (Nico) and Oliver (Ollie). Our family traditions include dressing up for the renaissance fair, going to the state fair, and season tickets to Great America. We are very close to both sides of our family. We visit Poland often, and Justyna’s mom comes to visit us as well.
Justyna has one sister and many close cousins. Gabriel has two sisters that we visit regularly. Our kids love to spend time with grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. Gabriel is a huge Vikings and Twins fan, so we often go to games with his dad. Some of the family traditions include visiting Justyna’s aunt and cousins on Easter and grandparents for Christmas. During those visits, we cook with the family, exchange gifts for Christmas, and organize egg hunts for Easter. Our fun family tradition for Christmas is setting a special plate with cookies and some milk for Santa. When the family from Minnesota visits, we usually eat out and play board games with all the kids. We love taking vacations together and recently went to Mexico.
What Led Us To Adoption
Gabriel was adopted as a newborn from India, and he is a great stepdad to Justyna’s son. His dad is a physician who is also an international speaker educating the public about the realities of adoption, so the topic has been familiar to us since the beginning of our relationship. As a couple, we have been talking about adoption ever since we got married but decided to finally move forward after having two boys and wanting to add a little girl to our family. We are very excited to take this journey and feel blessed that we were able to start it at this moment in our lives.

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
