We met in high school marching band and both went to the same university. We got married while in college, and less than two years later, we welcomed our daughter into this world. We have settled down in the same town we grew up in. Bob works for a utility company doing GIS, and Lindsey works for a regional bank processing mortgages. Our weekends are spent camping, spending time outdoors, and doing various things with our extended family, who all live close to us. During the week, we cook together, play games, and go to the parks around town. Bob likes to bowl, fish, golf, and barbeque. Lindsey spends her free time reading, playing piano, baking, and going to the gym. Our daughter enjoys gymnastics, swimming, doing crafts, and playing with her baby dolls and stuffed animals.
Our Home & Pets
Our home is in a beautiful neighborhood with large trees near excellent schools and multiple parks within walking distance. Our house is cozy and anyone who enters our home is considered family, whether they like it or not. We have a reservoir nearby where we often take our two goldendoodles on walks along the water. Waffles and Zoey are very sweet dogs who are great around kids and love to pick up food scraps that are dropped on the floor by tiny hands. Our town feels small despite its size. Every month there are activities downtown where we often see friends and neighbors listening to live music, enjoying some local food, or stopping by the farmers market.
Our Extended Family
Lindsey has a brother and sister who both live less than a half hour away. Lindsey’s sister-in-law went to the same high school, so all of us are extremely close. We spend time with her parents at least once or twice a week for our daughter’s sporting events, going out to dinner, or sometimes even grocery shopping together. We like to go to her parents’ lake house for Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and many other weekends throughout the year.
Bob has one brother with a daughter the same age as ours. They spend as much time together as possible. Bob’s entire extended family lives nearby, and we spend almost every weekend with them having cookouts or football parties or swimming in his aunt and uncle’s pool. We also go on beach vacations every few years with as many of them as possible. Our favorite tradition is our annual Christmas morning breakfast, where we spend hours eating, playing games, and relaxing.
What Led Us To Adoption
We knew early on in our relationship that we wanted a house full of children and full of conversation and laughter. After our daughter was born, we struggled with infertility and it was clear in our hearts that adoption is how our family would grow. Bob’s dad was adopted by his stepfather, and three of Lindsey’s childhood friends were adopted. We have seen how adoption can be an amazing and humbling experience and are very blessed to have the opportunity to add to our family in this way.

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!
