dear expectant mother
We think this choice you are considering is a selfless, gracious, courageous act. Because of you, our dream of having a family may come true. Growing up, we had the usual dreams of being a doctor or a professional athlete, but the biggest dream was to become parents.
Right after we married, we agreed to wait to have children so we could enjoy our marriage and each other. A couple of years later, after we established our careers, we decided we wanted to start a family. Little did we know being able to conceive wouldn’t be as easy as we had thought. After 12 years of trying, it just was not a part of God’s plan. While feeling defeated, it was then we realized God wasn’t making this impossible; He just had a bigger plan for this family.
Having a child as a part of our family will fill our house with more love. We are looking forward to building memories, working through challenges, and creating a wonderful life with a child. Adoption would make us forever grateful and would change our lives in all the best ways imaginable. We have the best support around us during the adoption process, and we promise this baby already has so much love surrounding them. We love this child we haven’t even met yet.
We have always maintained a strong work ethic in our careers and find what we do to be both challenging and intriguing. Stephan is an electrical technician for a government aviation factory, and Lisa is in document management for a mining company. Married for 15 years, we continue to build our life with a strong family foundation in Arizona. Our love story began in an Internet chat room and continues to this day. Stephan is Lisa’s biggest supporter; there’s not a day that goes by where Lisa doesn’t feel loved or safe as long as Stephan is by her side. Lisa is Stephan’s foundation as she forever encourages him to be the best person he can be; she is a constant in Stephan’s life for love, loyalty, and compassion. We truly believe we were a part of God’s plan to find each other and live a blessed life through eternity.
Our Home & Pets
We bought our home in Arizona a few years ago and absolutely love it—wood floors, granite countertops, a kitchen island, a large backyard, and the best neighbors anyone could ask for. We love hanging out in our spacious backyard with our dogs Zeek and Lucy. We spend most of our time in the pool during the summer. In the cooler months, we enjoy using our zoo membership and driving to national parks and museums that are close by. We also enjoy getting to know our neighborhood by taking evening walks with our dogs; this gives us an opportunity to meet new people. Some days we enjoy just relaxing on the couch with a good movie and popcorn with our cats, Alex and Jynx.
Our Extended Family
We are godparents to four children and an uncle and aunt to our niece (11) and nephew (3 months). We have so much fun starting new traditions and practicing our old traditions with them. One year we got all the kids together after Thanksgiving and collected toiletries for the homeless. We had the opportunity to teach the kids the importance of giving back and showing compassion. The kids successfully put together 88 care packages, and the kids were invited to tour the shelter. What they learned at the shelter was so incredible, and we were so proud of them!
We try to be as involved as possible with our godchildren and our niece and nephew by building fun memories with outings such as going to the zoo, camping, going to the movie theater, and simply having a family dinner. Building all these beautiful memories with these kids just made us ache more for our own. When we finally announced to our friends and family that we decided to start the adoption process, we immediately felt a flood of strong support, love, and prayers of hope. Family is incredible, and we have been beyond blessed.
What Led Us To Adoption
It was an emotional 12-year journey when we were trying to conceive. It was discovered Lisa had polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), but there was still a chance! But every month passed with us in disappointment that we weren’t yet going to be parents. After years of infertility, we realized God had bigger plans for us. We had discussed our options and both agreed doing in vitro and having a surrogate was not something we wanted. We only wanted adoption. We have extended family and friends with beautiful and amazing adoption stories, so we knew for sure adoption was the path we were going to choose.

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
