dear expectant mother
Thank you for considering us to be the parents of your sweet baby. We have been praying for you and your baby for a long time. We know this is a difficult choice for you, and we are beyond grateful for your selfless sacrifice. We hope to honor the special place you hold in the heart of your baby and are open to whatever ongoing relationship you are comfortable with. We want them to know their story: about where they came from, where they are, and you.
Fourteen years of marriage has allowed us to build a solid foundation. Our extended family and friends have been great examples, and their ongoing support will be welcomed as we guide your baby through life. God has blessed us, and we know this baby will be deeply loved and welcomed with open arms. We promise to give your baby a life of love, joy, and faith. We will provide a home full of warmth, family meals, creativity, laughter, games, encouragement, honesty, and adventure. We promise to do everything we can to help your baby achieve their dreams and show them all the beauty we have found in life. Above all, we will love them unconditionally.
We know life can be uncertain, but we hope we can be a source of comfort to you during this time. We feel overjoyed at the chance to be a part of your journey and you ours. Please know this miracle of yours is just that to us as well—a miracle.
Humbled and grateful,
Aaron & Kristin

We met 19 years ago during the fall of Kristin’s freshman year of college. We were both active in the campus ministry program at our local Catholic church. After graduation, we got married and moved within 20 minutes from each of our families. Aaron is a graphic designer. Outside of work, you can find him working on a home improvement project, swimming, eating Kristin’s home-cooked meals, or spending time with friends and family. After college, Kristin went into full-time youth ministry work for our parish. After 11 years, it was time to have more standard work hours and focus on a family. For the past few years, she has loved her job as a team manager for a group of real estate agents. She enjoys cooking, singing, hosting gatherings, reading, and spending time with those she loves. We enjoy family lake weekends, Saturdays, and walks with our dog Sadie.
Our Home & Pets
Our four-bedroom home sits on a corner in the suburbs, just a short from the local schools. We love our neighbors! Our dog, Sadie, loves to say hello and run the fence with Jingles, the neighbor dog. Around the back side of our home is the neighborhood tennis courts, pool, and park. It is neat how our backyard lights up when someone is playing a night game. We have big plans for a raised vegetable garden. We spend a lot of time working on projects in the garage and outside. Our community is friendly and loving, and there is always a wave and smile as walkers, bike riders, and runners go by.
Our Extended Family
Aaron is one of four children. Originally from Michigan, his family moved when he was in eighth grade. Aaron’s parents live about five minutes from us. We see them regularly for dinners and a swim in their pool. His siblings and their families all live within a short drive. A few years ago, Aaron’s parents purchased a lakehouse a short drive from where we live. During the spring and summer, we all go up there as much as possible for swimming, boat rides, and fishing. It has been such a blessing.
Kristin is from our area, and her parents still live in the house she grew up in. Her younger brother lives in the area too. It is a joy to host Kristin’s family, including her aunts, uncles, and cousins, at our home for the holidays. We fry turkeys, laugh, open presents, and eat well.
We really believe our friends are family. We have a close-knit group of about 12 couples and their children whom we get together with regularly for meals, prayer, celebrations, vacations, you name it. We may not be family by blood, but we are family by choice. We are blessed to have them.
What Led Us To Adoption
Before we were married, we discussed our desire to adopt at some point. This has always been something we have hoped for and wanted. For Kristin, as a full-time youth minister, and Aaron, a volunteer, loving children and young people has been a constant. One of our godchildren is adopted, and in walking with him into his adulthood, we have come to feel our call to be adoptive parents more strongly. We are beyond thrilled for these steps that are drawing us closer to our dream of adoption and a child of our own. We pray daily for this sweet child and cannot wait to love and welcome them into our hearts and family.

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
