dear expectant mother
As a mother, you can do something neither of us can do without your aid. If you choose us, your selfless gift will be something that will always be remembered in our home forever. We have dreamed of starting a family together since our first date, and we would be incredibly thankful for your help. We plan to express and share your love with your baby every day.
We will ensure that your baby will be raised in a home full of love and acceptance. Your baby will grow up in an environment where love and respect are our family rules. We will share many ideologies; encourage sports, music, and arts; and make sure your baby grows to be confident and respected. We will go on many adventures to beaches and mountains, and being Disney dads ourselves, we will go on many trips to Disney. Having two fathers will ensure your baby has plenty of dad jokes, and they will learn to enjoy life while we’re instilling the maternal instincts we were both born with.
We’ve wanted to be dads for so long that we want you to know your baby’s happiness and well-being will be our top priority. We thank you for considering our family. We can’t wait to meet you soon.

Hi! We’re Kraig and Ben! We lived in the same dorm in college but never formally met. Ben remembers noticing Kraig on campus, and one year later we attended the same party where we were finally connected and started dating. We moved to California after graduating to start our lives together. While in California, we traveled together to Disneyland, Universal, Sequoia National Forest, many beaches, wine country, and Vegas and had many other adventures. Kraig works as a pharmacist, while Ben is a life coach for individuals with mental and physical disabilities. Some of our favorite things to do are travel and cook together. We are down to try anything new and exciting together! Living in California means we are a short drive from Disney to beaches and mountains, and we look forward to the next adventure.
Our Home & Pets
In 2022 we achieved our dream of building our three-bedroom home together. We live in a brand-new development across the street from the newest middle school. We ensured our new house had a spacious backyard so our two dogs have plenty of room to run and play. We have Hayley, a six-year-old boxer mastiff, and Steve, a one-year-old black Lab terrier. Both dogs are incredibly playful and outstanding snuggle bugs at the night’s end if you have a blanket and snacks! We cannot wait to fill our new home with as much love and care as possible for a new family.
Our Extended Family
Family is essential for both of us. Since we live across the States from our extended family, much of our time is spent FaceTiming, calling our parents and siblings daily, and making trips to see them throughout the year. Ben is exceptionally close with his cousin and best friend, who visits every year for extravagant vacations, and we want to continue the tradition that bonds our family. We have many close friends in town who have newborns, along with Ben’s sister, who just had a baby in 2023, and Kraig’s sister, who is expecting a boy in October 2023. Our child will grow up with cousins their age from all our brothers and sisters.
Our friends are also considered family and cannot wait to share the experiences and wackiness of our future child. Many of our holidays are shared with our friends. Kraig’s favorite holiday is Thanksgiving, and he loves cooking an extravagant dinner to share with our friends. Halloween is also a tradition within the family of friends, where we dress up yearly to hang out and pass out candy to the kiddos.
What Led Us To Adoption
We want to provide a safe and loving home for a newborn. We want nothing more than to become parents! We both come from diverse families and want to share our love for a baby in a positive and loving environment. Kraig is confident in his medical background. Ben has been a veteran nanny for many years, teaching and caring for infants, and using sign language and knowledge as a preschool teacher. We cannot wait to share our background and experience with your baby. We both have dreamed of being fathers and want to make sure our new family will be loved no matter what and grow to always feel accepted and confident.

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
