dear expectant mother
As potential parents to your child, our promise to you is to make our number one priority loving him or her irrevocably and unconditionally. We understand the road ahead of you might not be an easy one and there will be difficult decisions to make, but know that love for your child is the foundation of what brings us together. From their first steps to dancing at prom, through friendships and breakups, our love will be absolute and unwavering. We are excited beyond words about starting our family together through adoption, and we hope you can see in us the family to share your journey with in whatever capacity you feel most comfortable.
We have dreams of spending time at the family lake house swimming in the waves and stargazing on the dock, having mouth-watering backyard barbeques with family and friends, cheering (the loudest of course) at sporting events, surrounding them with loving family during holidays, going for sunny hikes and bike rides, and reading adventurous bedtime stories. Most of all, we want to give our child a sense of where they came from, knowing they were chosen and loved even before they were born.
We feel extremely honored you would consider us for the humbling task of becoming parents to your child. Understandably you may have some difficult choices ahead of you, but we hope you have a sense of peace no matter what decision you make.
Hi, we’re Antonia and Kris! We first met about seven years ago when starting physician assistant school. During school, we became study buddies and best friends, but it wasn’t until around graduation that we started dating. It was a fun two years of dating and entering the workforce together before getting married at a beautiful outdoor ceremony. Now we’ve been Mr. and Mrs. for almost three years. Time sure flies! Currently we both work in the medical field, which fortunately allows for significant flexibility. Because of this, we are able to do many of the activities we enjoy, such as hiking, riding bikes, listening to live music, watching movies, spending time with friends and family, and traveling—really anything where we get to spend time together. At this point, the only thing missing on our family adventures is a child to join us.
Our Home & Pets
Welcome to North Carolina! The warm weather and clear skies make for glorious time spent outside. In our town, we have access to over 200 acres of parks and green space with athletic fields, playgrounds, lakes, and trails. Not to mention the A+ public schools and ranking as the #1 place in the U.S. to raise a family. We currently live in a spacious apartment and can’t wait to dedicate one of those rooms to a child. Our complex is surrounded by multiple entrances to a lovely, forested trail. We take walks there almost daily at the request of our two furry children, Tucker and Lexi. Trying to resist those puppy dog eyes is futile.
Our Extended Family
Let’s introduce you to the fam! Antonia is the proud mama of two beautiful, grown daughters who were adopted as infants from China. She has two sisters who are both married and have kids of their own as well. Kris has a younger brother, and a new sister-in-law was recently added to the family too.. We are blessed that Antonia’s mom and both of Kris’s parents are alive and well and are so excited to meet their new grandchild!
We enjoy traditions with our family, such as scrumptious Thanksgivings cooked by Kris’s mom, Christmas tree lightings while singing carols, annual visits to beautiful Oregon to see Antonia’s family, and spending time at the family lake house in Michigan.
We are so fortunate to have family involved in our lives and look forward to having them involved in our child’s life as well. Their anticipation to have a new little one to love on has been overwhelming.
Our Adoption Story
Adoption has always been in our hearts, both before we met and together as a couple. It has never been considered a backup plan in starting our family but rather an alternative option. Antonia has a personal connection in that she previously adopted two beautiful daughters from China. Through this, we have seen firsthand how wonderfully adoption works in making a loving family and how children can grow to individually understand their own adoption stories. Antonia always says adoption was one of the best life decisions she has ever made as it brought her the two souls who were meant to be her daughters. And now, as a couple, it is something we can’t wait to do together to form our 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
