dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
We can’t even begin to understand the incredibly brave decision you are making by considering adoption for your child. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking the time to get to know us and considering us.
We are a couple full of love and laughter, and we can’t wait to share this with a child. We would welcome this child into a safe and loving home with friends and family always nearby. We promise to raise your child with love and fun experiences. We can’t wait to help your child grow to the best of their abilities and to be there to help them in their journey. We want to help them grow through traveling, playtime in the outdoors, and family movie nights curled up on the couch together. The memories we want to create with your child are endless. From bedtime stories and walks along our lakeside town to playing in forts in our backyard with neighborhood friends and creating arts and crafts masterpieces, we want to give your child the best life experience we can.
As you continue on your adoption journey, please know our hearts are with you and we are so grateful for your courage. We promise to honor you and your story throughout our lifetime with all the grace you have shown. Should you choose us as adoptive parents, please know we are waiting with open arms and love.
Lauren works in human resources, and Adam works in banking. We love to walk around our lake town with our dog, Nora, and try new coffee shops, but we also enjoy traveling to new places to experience new things. We’ve only traveled to the same place twice—Lauren’s favorite island in Florida where she spent a lot of time growing up. We love to hike and enjoy the outdoors on vacations. Adam tries to make Lauren laugh every chance he gets with endless dad jokes. We love hosting friends and family in our home year round to enjoy the numerous home renovations we have worked on together. We love to DIY together; Lauren dreams up the ideas, and Adam gets to work with his carpentry skills. We are each other's best friend and truly enjoy spending as much time together as possible, no matter what we are doing.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a three-bedroom, two-bathroom home on a cul-du-sac in a quiet neighborhood in Wisconsin with our puppy, Nora. Our backyard has the perfect hill for winter sledding. We love spending time in our backyard with friends and family, barbecuing, playing games, and watching our dog play with our friends’ dogs. Adam can’t wait to build a treehouse, fort, and swing set for our children. There are children and dogs of all ages in almost every house in our neighborhood, so it is always buzzing with activity and kids out and about. We live near a major summer lake town where we spend most weekends taking walks with Nora, shopping, having picnics, or going to the library. In the winter, we love to snuggle at home and watch movies, build puzzles, do crafts, or read books and magazines. Nora is such a loving dog. She loves to snuggle with us but is always up for a game of fetch too!
Our Extended Family
Lauren has a small, close-knit family. Lauren’s parents just bought a lakehouse 20 minutes from their house, and we can’t wait to spend summers boating and enjoying lake life. She is especially close with her cousin, who is only a few months older than she, and has lived close to her all their lives. Every other year, Lauren’s immediate family goes on a warm-weather trip right around Christmas, and we can’t wait to add one more traveler. We have been to Florida, Costa Rica, Punta Cana, and Hawaii.
Adam has a much larger extended family than Lauren, but they are still very close. Two of his three siblings live within ten minutes of our house, and his parents live 20 minutes from us. We have enjoyed Easter game days with Adam’s extended family, where all 30 cousins and their families get together to play games, such as sack races, egg tosses, and scavenger hunts. We also enjoy murder mystery dinner nights with his cousins and family game nights.
What Led Us To Adoption
After not being able to conceive a biological child, we knew adoption was the way we wanted to grow our family. We have seen so much love in adoptive families as Lauren has six cousins who were adopted and Adam’s best friend was adopted. We knew we would be honored to raise a child in the same way. Lauren also has a very dear friend who is a birthmother and who has a wonderful relationship with the family raising her son. All of our experiences have shown us what a special and loving opportunity adoption can be.

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
