Thank you, from the top, bottom, and sides of my heart, for considering adoption. I would be forever indebted for the chance to give your baby the warmth of my home, love of a big family, and the possibility to support their dreams. I am humbled by you and your decision to give your miracle of life a chance for love. Your baby will always know that this decision was born out of love from both of us.
My life is currently a blend of excitement and adventure mixed with stability and comfort. When we summer together at our family lake home in Wisconsin, do cannonballs in our Florida pool, or take family trips to explore new places, there is, every time, a part of me that notices the absence of a child to share it all with. It would bring me no greater joy than to be able to share with your child the same love that I receive from my family.
Our family lives our values. Honesty, education, integrity, diversity, loyalty, and a strong work ethic are the crux of our family dynamic. I share and believe in living these values and am excited to bring your child into the same positive environment that defined my own childhood.
Your baby will be surrounded by love and warmth, be shown a high moral standard for life, and given wings to pursue their own visions as they grow. You and your beautiful decision to pursue adoption touch my very core. It would be an honor to be chosen by you.
I am an elementary school teacher of thirteen years and currently teaching 4th grade! I love my work because it is centered around my favorite part of life… kids! When I am not teaching and learning with my students, you can find me traveling and exploring the outdoors with my pup, Cobalt. We spend summers and long weekends together at our family lake home in Wisconsin. I also love to explore the indoors through home design, repurposing furniture, and attempting a variety of healthy recipes!
I spend quite a bit of time with my local family and friends. There are a lot of us! We enjoy holidays, celebrations, and just chilled out weekends together with all of the kids and dogs. Life is good.
My Home & Pets
My house became a home when I bought and settled into my townhouse three years ago, after teaching internationally for the previous four years. My goal was simple; to be close to family and friends. I live in a friendly association that enjoys each other’s company at the pool, tennis court, dog park or on a nearby deck. Once settled, I began fostering dogs through a local animal rescue, which led me to adopt Cobalt, the big, loving, gentle Saint Bernard mix, who looks (and acts!) like a baked potato. He enjoys long naps and also the everyday visits from those we love. Our home is where we belong. We love it here.
My Extended Family
Oh my, we are a big family… and still growing! My paternal grandmother was adopted as a baby. Together, with my grandfather, they raised seven children of their own. My cousins on this side make for a great road-trip out of state, as they live in varying places all over the country. My maternal grandparents had four children, all of whom are still married, and had children of their own. Growing up, it was important to them that their children were close and spent a lot of time together, so that meant we acted more like siblings! I am most thankful for this, as we are now spending our adult years together since we all live so close. My brother and cousins now have spouses and children of their own. Watching my nephews and nieces grow up is so much fun! Our family is growing rapidly and already includes two adoptions! We are a handful of personalities, careers, and beliefs tied together by love and core family values. Life with us is certainly never boring!
What Led Me To Adoption
Adoption has always been how I envisioned becoming a mother. It’s my first choice. Every day as a teacher, and previously as a child advocate (CASA), I strive to meet children’s needs. I enjoy nurturing children through a warm and supportive environment. I have not yet found the right man to marry, and when that happens, he will know exactly what to do and how to love us. I have always known in my heart that one day, my life and home would be ready to open up to my own children. Because of you, today is that day. My excitement for this chapter overwhelms me in all of the best ways.

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
