dear expectant mother

Thank you for considering us to raise your precious child! If you choose us, we’ll spend the rest of our lives loving your child beyond measure. We’ll be by their side every day to teach and encourage them and be their number one fan.

We promise to raise your child in a home filled with peace, laughter, and faith in God. They will be raised on home-cooked meals, nursery rhymes, and bedtime stories. They will be loved to the moon and back!

We promise to give your child a sense of belonging by returning with them to the same places and experiences again and again. This includes trips to our favorite park with the ninja warrior course, to the apple orchard with the apple-cider donuts, and to our local library where the librarians know us by name. This includes epic games of Candyland and Monopoly. It includes pillow fights and knock-knock jokes, long bike rides and awesome vacations. We’ll cherish every memory we make together!

As a stay-at-home mom, Laura promises to always be present for every first your child experiences. Together, we offer you not just a loving mother and father, but a family, a team, complete with three big brothers eager to love your child in ways that only siblings can.

Finally, it’s our promise that you’ll be honored in our home. We’ll talk lovingly about how adoption brought us together and hold you as a special part of our family – always! We’d love to learn more about you and your hopes for your child’s future!

About Us

We are Carlos and Laura from Illinois! We’ve been married for over a decade, and our love story just keeps getting better! We’re a team, and we lean on each other’s strengths. Originally from Puerto Rico, Carlos is hard-working, easygoing, and loyal. He loves telling jokes, and he’s made it his life’s mission to make Laura laugh every single day. Laura is kind, creative, and nurturing. She finds joy in loving Carlos in small ways like packing him delicious lunches for work and cooking his favorite meals like chicken, rice, and beans (Puerto Rican style, of course!). Carlos works as a local semi-truck driver, while Laura absolutely loves being a stay-at-home mom to our three amazing boys. We are fun-loving and adventurous, and we enjoy the simple things in life like good pizza and stargazing on a clear night. We can’t wait to discover what sparkle of life another child will bring to our family!

Our Home

We love our home! It sits in a safe, family-friendly neighborhood, and we’ve transformed it into a place where we absolutely love to be.

As a family, we bake homemade cookies, cakes, and pizza in our home, and we enjoy reading, painting, and building with Legos. We love having game and movie nights! Our piano and guitars get played daily by Laura and the boys, and we grow a garden with fruits and vegetables every year.

Our favorite outdoor activities include basketball in the front yard and riding our electric scooters around the neighborhood. Outside of our home, we love being in nature - at parks, nature centers, farms, and the zoo.

Opening our hearts and home to a new child would mean the world to us! We absolutely can’t wait to create new memories!

Our Extended Family

We are blessed to have almost every member of our extended family living in Illinois. Our children get to grow up alongside their many cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents.

Carlos’ family includes his mom and dad, his brother and sister, and their children. When we get together, we barbeque, light a bonfire, and listen to Carlos tell stories until our sides hurt from laughing so hard. Our children have many cousins on Carlos’ side of the family, and when we get together, they immediately start a game of hide-and-seek, tag, or red light green light.

Laura’s family includes her sisters, their children, and her mom and dad, who are amazing grandparents in every way. Laura’s dad is known for having epic wiffle ball games with the grandkids, while Laura’s mom is the queen of buying the biggest and best birthday and Christmas presents ever!

We would not be who we are without our extended family. They are kind and generous and support us in every way. They also love to have fun, and we get together often and have an absolute blast. Both of our families cannot wait to shower the newest member of our family with love! We are all so excited!

What Led Us To Adoption

Adoption is a beautiful story woven throughout the Bible when God adopted us into His big family. We are beyond excited to grow our family and open our hearts to love another child through adoption! We have so much love to give and are hopeful that we might be the perfect fit for someone looking for a family to unconditionally love and provide for their child.

Our boys will be the best big brothers ever! They are kind and thoughtful like Laura and goofy and adventurous like Carlos. They are inseparable, and this bond will no doubt be extended to a new sibling. Our family will work together as a team to always love, teach, and protect the child who will one day join 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!
