dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
Thank you for taking the time to look at our profile. We are incredibly grateful that you are considering us as the family for your baby. We are on this journey to expand our family and to meet the children God has planned for us. Adoption is a special opportunity for that wish to come true. We are eternally grateful for our adopted son, Mark, and cannot wait for him to have a little brother or sister.
Your sacrifice will be the reason the family you choose will be able to become parents. Please know we have great respect for your bravery and we are praying for you and your baby. Our friends and family are also praying.
Our promise to you: Together we will unconditionally love your child to the fullest. We will educate him or her not only with a quality education but also in the teachings of our faith. We promise to always provide a safe and stable home with emotional and financial support. We promise your child will know about you. We will be open and honest about his or her adoption and about you. We promise your child will have fun, be safe, and never be alone! It is our intention to have a big family. And little Mark will be very excited to have a sibling, best friend, and playmate. We both have huge extended families, so there are lots of cousins eagerly awaiting the arrival of a new addition!
Mark & April
We met online and knew right away we shared a similar upbringing and family values. Mark is a civil engineer and works as a construction manager to build safe roads and bridges. He is a hard worker who cares very deeply for his family and will go out of his way to take care of anything they need. Mark always remains calm in any situation, which has a calming effect on everyone around him. April was always motivated to pursue her dreams and spent many years traveling and dancing in theme parks and on cruise ships. April is now a stay-at-home mom caring for our son, Mark. April is a very loyal friend and, as a result, has a huge support system. We enjoy many activities, such as going to Disney, the beach, fishing, sporting events, biking, traveling, and family events. Whatever we’re doing, we just enjoy being together!
We live in a four-bedroom, three-bath home in Central Florida. This is our first home, which we have built together. Our neighborhood has a pool and a splash pad! It is an active and friendly community where we enjoy bike riding and walking the mile loop around the lake. April loves to take early morning walks with Mark in his stroller. We live on a corner lot with a nice big backyard. We enjoy sitting on the back patio and reading and singing with our son. He loves the outdoors! There is a nearby park that has ball fields, swings, and bike trails. Also, living in Florida means being close to our favorite places: the beach and Disney.
Our Extended Family
We are both originally from Ohio, and we met in Florida. Mark comes from a huge Italian family. His immediate family all live nearby in Central Florida, with extended family in Ohio and Canada; he also stays in touch with family in Italy. April’s loud and loving family are of Croatian and Slovakian descent. Although April's family lives in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Mississippi, they see one another often. Mark has three brothers and one sister, and April has two brothers. Together we have 13 nieces and nephews and six godchildren!
April is very close with her brothers. They have a great time and a lot of laughs joking with each other about the good ol’ days whenever they get together. Mark is very close with his family as well, and they are always getting together for birthdays, for holidays, and whenever they can. Everyone is excitedly awaiting the news that our family will be growing! They are all very supportive and cannot wait to welcome the new little one!
Our Adoption Story
We have always felt God's calling to adopt and have been inspired by good friends who were adopted and have adopted. They are all very supportive. It has always been our intention to have a big family of both biological and adopted children. However, over the years, we have suffered the heartbreak of miscarriages. We are so grateful for the miracle of adoption that has brought us our beautiful little boy, Mark! We cannot wait to expand our family and share our home and all of our love!

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
