dear expectant mother
Thank you for being incredibly selfless. This is a trait we will forever instill in your child if you bless us with this gift. We know this is not easy, but you are strong, you are brave, you are resilient, and you will forever be cherished. You are more impactful than you know.
We’ve talked about our desire to become parents since we first started dating nearly a decade ago. We’ve had roadblocks with unsuccessful pregnancies, but that is not going to stop us. Adoption is a beautiful thing and is ultimately the reason why we’ve stopped pursuing any more fertility treatments. Our love for one another proves that blood is not always thicker than water and that the grass is always greener where you water it.
We are ready for what we can be ready for, and we look forward to taking on all of life's new challenges that are to come. We are excited to begin fulfilling our greatest dream, parenthood. Thank you for considering us for the opportunity to become parents. If you choose us, we will not let you down.

We are two halves of a whole. Where one may lack, the other thrives. Kristen is known to be a ray of sunshine. She holds those who are a part of her inner circle near and dear and is always the first to offer a helping hand. Kristen is a fantastic, creative cook. You can usually tell when Kristen is proud of whatever she whipped up in the kitchen when she breaks out the camera. Picture taking is another hobby of hers. Steven is known for having everyone’s safety in mind at all times and always makes time to help those in need. He is kind, selfless, and a bit of a goofball too! Steve is very passionate about exercising. He is always finding fun, interactive ways to have friends and family join him in physical activities, whether it’s hiking, swimming, biking, or hitting the gym.
Our Home & Pets
We live in the Sunshine State, Florida! We have a three-bedroom, three-bathroom home with a den and a pool, located in a kid-friendly, gated community. Our neighborhood has a community center with large pools fully equipped for family fun, including a splash pad/waterfall area along with a beautiful playground, basketball courts, and more! We have two dogs, Loki and Odin. Loki is a six-year-old Lhasa Apso who is a social butterfly with both humans and dogs. He’ll snuggle up to anyone that’ll give him the opportunity to. Odin is a five-year-old German Shepherd who is an absolute sweetheart. You can always find Odin with a ball in his mouth trying to lure people in to play fetch.
Our Extended Family
We have a large family to be thankful for. Kristen’s side consists of her mother, father, brother, sister-in-law, our niece, Nana and Pop-pop, 14 aunts and uncles, and 18 cousins. Steve’s side of the family consists of his mother, brother, sister-in-law and our nephew who is on the way, sister, five aunts and uncles, and four cousins. And our family continues to grow! We keep the family members who are no longer with us close to our hearts and in our thoughts.
We see our parents weekly, sometimes daily! Kristen’s parents live ten houses down, and Steve’s mom is one town over. We see our siblings often even though we are scattered across Florida, New Jersey, and Delaware. We love to host family gatherings and make each time relaxing and full of laughs and good food.
What Led Us To Adoption
Starting a family has always been a certainty of ours. Conversations about our future children have been frequent and exciting since we first started dating nearly a decade ago. We’ve encountered a few bumps in our mission to expand our family, but that has not held us back from our goal of parenthood. Instead of continuing rounds of fertility treatments, we began to educate ourselves on the beauty of adoption. As the conversations and education continue, the excitement keeps growing. We are ready, we are prepared, and our hearts are wide open.

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!
