dear expectant mother

We are not perfect, but we strive to be the best we can be and to treat each other with respect and love. We are nervous, excited, and most definitely ready to be parents.

We cannot imagine the struggle you may be going through as you make this important decision for you and your baby. We hope that as you read through our profile, you will consider us to be the perfect family to take care of your child. We are forever grateful that you are even taking the time to review us.

Please know that we will love, care for, encourage, and spoil your baby. From exciting vacations across the pond to adventurous camping trips across the state, we will make sure your baby has the opportunity to explore the world. But also know that we will be structured and have an understanding of the difference between play time and homework time. Overall, we will teach your child to love and be loved so that one day they will be able to make a difference in the world.

About Us

Brian is a systems analyst for a construction company in charge of developing and maintaining systems and applications for his company. Manuel is a litigation attorney for a law firm, helping his clients with complex legal disputes. Brian is a strategist. He likes to evaluate situations and rationalize how to act. At the same time, Brian is adventurous and likes to explore life. Manuel is a decision maker. He is goal driven and likes the challenge of change. On the same token, Manuel is a deep thinker who likes to observe the beauty of life and people. We enjoy getting together with friends and family for meals, game nights, and conversation. We also enjoy camping and the outdoor activities associated with it. In addition, we love to travel. Individually, Brian has a passion for theater, and Manuel has a passion for volleyball.

Our Home & Pets

We live in a high rise in the middle of downtown in a two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo with a huge balcony, pet park, and rooftop patio near restaurants, city parks, the zoo, and the science center. We live with our dogs, Bianca and Winston. Bianca is a six-year-old cock-a-poo. She is a princess and the boss of the pack. She was once a certified therapy dog who visited elderly homes and the childrens’ hospital and is very loving, especially toward kids. Winston is a one-year-old mini bernedoodle. He is a lover and cuddler. Winston loves to please us and is always attentive to our commands. Like Bianca, Winston loves kids.

Our Extended Family

Brian has one sister, who is married with three children (one about to go to college, one in high school, and the youngest in junior high school), and they all live in town. We get together every Monday night for dinner at Brian’s mom’s house. Brian’s mom cooks something delicious, and we and Brian’s sister and her family all come. Apart from having a meal together, we usually have great conversation, play games, go to the movies, and get together for holidays.

Since Manuel’s mom does not live in town, we try to visit her as much as possible, in addition to his grandparents, especially around special holidays like Mother's Day, Christmas, and summer vacations. We are super excited to start sharing these traditions with our child and start creating new ones as well.

What Led Us To Adoption

We are nervous, excited, and most definitely ready to be parents. We are excited to be able to offer the best education possible so they can grow to be the best person they can be. Of course, making the decision to adopt was not a decision we took lightly. After much soul searching, we had no doubt in our hearts that we wanted nothing more than to become parents. Our family and friends always tell us how wonderful we are with kids. We can’t wait to be able to give our love and care to a child.

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!
