dear expectant mother

We know that this is one of the most difficult decisions you will ever have to make. We are beyond grateful to be considered to love and cherish your precious child. We have both been touched personally by adoption and know that adoption is an unbelievably selfless act of love by a mother.

There has always been one thing that gives both of us purpose in life: being parents. We love our son more and more each day, and these last couple years have been the best of our lives. We are more than ready to expand our family and give our unconditional love to your child. We’ve dreamed since the day we were married of hearing our children giggling together and building relationships that will endure.

Your child will be welcomed into a home that is filled with love, laughter, and joy. We strive to provide a variety of new experiences for our son to learn and grow. Every day is filled with lots of reading, singing songs, and plenty of playtime. Our weekends are full of trips to the zoo, going to local festivals, and lots of visiting with grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins! We have both been blessed with wonderful, loving families that visit often. We can’t wait to shower another little one with our love and affection, watching them go wherever their dreams may take them.

About Us

We’re Marcus and Kristina. We met in junior high. We’ve been best friends for over 15 years and have been married for close to six! Kristina is outgoing, kind, and compassionate. She enjoys reading, being outdoors, and working out. As a nurse practitioner, Kristina has an incredible ability to connect with her patients on a personal level to be able to provide the best medical care. Marcus is hardworking, reliable, and a fan of all things sports! One of Marcus’s greatest talents is his leadership at work, where he’s able to connect with people and lead by example. Marcus enjoys cooking and trying new foods. We were blessed with an incredible son, Logan, in 2017. Whether enjoying a quiet weekend together, going for a hike at one of the nearby parks, or going on vacation, our worlds truly revolve around each other.

Our Home & Pets

Our home is situated in a quiet, rural neighborhood with walking trails and playgrounds that we take advantage of at every opportunity. We live in an inviting four-bedroom home. The kitchen flows right into the living room, which means playtime can carry on while dinner is being made. Outside, there’s plenty of grass to run and play in, and we love growing fresh vegetables in our garden. The highly rated elementary school is just a short walk away. We have absolutely wonderful neighbors with kids of all ages, whom we have developed close friendships with. We have a five-year-old Yorkie-Bichon mix. Ace loves playing fetch with his favorite orange ball. He adores running around with kids, snuggling, and sharing lots of kisses!

Our Extended Family

Family means everything to us. Because we both grew up in the same small hometown, we have the luxury of nearly all of our family being close together. Marcus comes from a large family with lots of aunts, uncles, and cousins. Kristina comes from a slightly smaller family and is fortunate to have three grandparents and two great-grandparents in addition to aunts, uncles, and cousins. Every holiday is filled with lots of laughter, storytelling, and home-cooked meals. On both sides, we’ve always made it a point to celebrate every birthday, graduation, and anniversary with our families. We’ve always wanted to provide that same upbringing for our children.

Marcus’s older brother and wife have two wonderful children. Our son is very close to his cousins, and every gathering is full of lots of running, playing, and giggling. The three of them make family vacations a blast!

Both sets of grandparents are so excited to welcome another precious grandchild into their lives. Between our siblings and our parents, we feel fortunate that our children can spend lots of quality time with their loving grandparents, aunts, and uncles making memories that will last a lifetime.

Our Adoption Story

Both of our lives have been touched by adoption. Kristina was adopted by her father at a very young age. Two of Marcus’s close relatives were adopted, and his parents provided foster care to children for several years. Through these experiences, we have both seen first hand that love is what makes a family. We are both very close to our siblings and want that same special bond for our son—the playing, the laughing, the bickering, but most of all having a friend they can always depend on. While we’ve always hoped to grow our family, our circumstances will not allow us to have another biological child. Our hearts and our home are open and ready to welcome a child into our lives through adoption.

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!
