dear expectant mother
We know we haven’t officially met, but we want to take some time to thank you for taking the time to consider us as a family for your precious baby. We learned through a series of life events that our call was to adopt, and when we followed that call, we were blessed with Roslynn. We knew right away our hearts would go through this again.
We believe that because we’ve already been blessed with children, we know we can provide the unconditional love, support, and opportunity that is needed for a lifetime of success. We promise to not only love, support, and provide for your child but also to tailor our roles to support who God created them to be. If you choose us, your child will be entering a family that is beyond supportive and loving. A family that treats others as their own and goes above and beyond for each other. A family that loves and follows Jesus and seeks to live for Him daily.
Our desire is that you are able to be a part of this child’s life in a manner that is fulfilling and meaningful to both of you. We would like to offer you an open relationship of support and love as well. You are very important to us and will possibly become one of the most important women in all of our lives. Thanks again for your consideration.

We are slightly different in personality, but we both love to laugh. We believe in hard work and doing right by others. It’s important to us that we provide our family with opportunities while giving back. We own several businesses. We oversee the overall operation of the ones located in MN, and our two partners oversee the one that runs out of IL. Kiana is a nurse but started staying home with the kids when we had our second child. Her primary role is taking care of the kids. We love God, good food, movies, boating, the lake, traveling, and being together. We own property in Florida and visit often. We are active members in a non-denominational church here, and Kiana serves as the nursery/preschool leader. We all try to serve at church and local food banks and participate in various donation collections.
We live in a beautiful, seven-bedroom home in the country on 14 acres. We have buildings outside for the equipment, horses, cows, and barn cats. We have four-wheelers, a pool, a hot tub, a sauna, and a kids room with a spring floor and Nerf guns and toys. Inside, we have a game room and toy room in our basement. Our home is our happy place. We like to have fun stuff for the kids to do at home so they bring others and enjoy themselves. We also like to have our friends over for good food and fun. We live only a couple of miles from the town activities, like shopping, a theater, food, and local entertainment. We live close to the schools and have relationships with several of the teachers and staff there.
Our Extended Family
Our extended family is large! Kiana’s family lives in Indiana, while Andrew’s family is here in Minnesota. We love to get together for vacations, and we have done summer vacations all over. We usually stay on a lake or near a beach with Kiana’s family and go places with lots of entertainment with Andrew’s family. We always have a great time! This year we were with Andrew’s family in Florida and went to the zoo and a sunset boat tour. We plan to go to Disney in February too. We will be in Indiana with Kiana’s family in May for our niece to get married. They will be here in MN with us in September for our oldest to get married. We are trying to organize a trip someplace warm with them as well. Our whole family loves kiddos, and we make great memories together!
Our Adoption Story
We felt called to adopt through a series of events. One was a situation in which we thought we would be adopting two teens we had taken in. We ultimately were able to come alongside their mom and provide the resources to get her help, and she ended up being able to take them home. We love being parents and knew we could offer that to more children. We adopted our daughter Roslynn in 2018, and she has been such a blessing to our family. The process was beautiful. Our whole family has been touched by adoption and/or foster care at some point, and we couldn’t be happier to care for these precious kiddos. The support from family and friends has been amazing!

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!
