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 can understand the road ahead of you might not be an easy one. 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, and we hope you can see in us the family to share the 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 honored you would consider us for the humbling task of becoming parents to your child and understand you may be encountering some profound and life-changing choices. Our hope is that no matter what the outcome may be, you come away with a sense of peace knowing you made the right decision for you and your child.

We first met nine years ago in physician assistant school, and four years later, we got married. We relocated from the Midwest to North Carolina almost three years ago, so you’ll often find us out exploring. We love finding new trails for walks and hikes, listening to live music, traveling, and spending time with our family and friends. That’s not to say we don’t enjoy a quiet night at home watching a good movie or playing board games. Kris is an outgoing, energetic, and dependable guy who loves playing baseball and swimming at the beach. He can’t wait to be a dad. Antonia is a considerate, loyal, and adventurous spirit who loves spending time in nature and practicing archery. We could not be more thankful for the wonderful people we have in our lives, and we both look forward to guiding and loving a child and sharing all we have to offer with them.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a three-bedroom home in North Carolina about two hours from the coast and two hours from the mountains. Kris prefers the beach but Antonia is a mountain girl, so we’re forced to enjoy ourselves at both! Our neighborhood is full of young families and potential future playmates. It’s hard to go outside after school and not see a group of kids running, scootering, throwing a ball, or drawing with chalk. We are fortunate to be surrounded by parks, green spaces, athletic fields, playgrounds, lakes, and trails almost everywhere you look. In fact, just beyond our backyard are several trail entrances where we take daily walks with our four-legged child, Lexi. She would like it noted that she is very excited to have a baby brother or sister to play with!
Our Extended Family
Although we live in different states than our immediate families, we’re fortunate to still be able to spend a lot of time with them. And we are blessed to have an amazing group of supportive friends in North Carolina too. Everyone is so excited to welcome a new baby!
Kris’s mom and brother, sister-in-law, and their new baby girl live in the Chicagoland area. It has been an amazing experience for Kris to become an uncle for the first time, and his niece is excited to have a new cousin to play with too! Antonia’s mom and her sisters and their families are split between Oregon and Texas, which makes for fun family trips!
We enjoy traditions with our families, such as scrumptious Thanksgivings cooked by Kris’s mom, Christmas tree lightings in the town square while singing carols, and spending time at the family lake house in Michigan.
Our Adoption Story
Adoption has always been in our hearts, both individually before we met and together as a couple. We’ve never considered it a backup plan but rather an alternative option for starting a family. Because of this, when we encountered difficulty having children together naturally, it was exciting to think of the possibilities opened up to us by adoption. We feel we have so much love to give, and raising a child is something we absolutely cannot wait to do together. We strongly believe that people who are meant to be in each other’s lives find each other. Regardless of genetics, family is something that is grown in the heart.

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
