dear expectant mother
It’s hard to imagine the thoughts and feelings you must be having while you consider your options. There are probably so many great profiles to choose from, and you likely have questions that can’t be answered here. All we can say is, your child will have the BEST childhood and the MOST love in the world if you choose us. With your help, our dream of having a family can come true.
We will shower your child with love and provide every opportunity possible so he or she grows up with a solid, happy, vibrant, fun, healthy foundation. The upside to having put our careers first for so many years is we now have the luxury of putting a child first, something many other working parents can’t do.
There are so many things we want to do with your child, from arts and crafts to cooking, travel, horseback riding. They will learn people make mistakes and that forgiveness and kindness are things that matter. They will have the best of everything life has to offer while staying humble and learning the value of a dollar. They will be spoiled but not spoiled rotten! They will be able to choose any path in life because we will support them in their journey.
We wish you peace and happiness as you consider your options. We’d be honored, thankful, and happy beyond our wildest dreams to raise your child.
We met five years ago after working in the same industry for most of our careers. We have a lot in common: We’ve both lived abroad, have lived in some of the same cities in the U.S., and enjoy the same wacky sense of humor. We love to cook, play cards and board games, ride bikes, ski, play tennis, and travel. We work hard during the year and then reward ourselves with a great trip at the end of the year: Spain, Mexico, Cuba, and Hawaii, to name a few. We also have three love bugs that are constantly at our side: a Lab, a Great dane, and an English mastiff.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a neighborhood with wide, tree-lined streets and several parks. There are small children on each block and an elementary school within walking distance. Our home has an open floor plan with big picture windows and a large fenced-in backyard. Your child will experience a loving home and a magical childhood complete with Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, summer camps, sports, theater, travel, slumber parties, birthday celebrations, art, music, and anything that sparks their interest. They will be given the best opportunities in life and will be taught the tools needed to be a happy, healthy, successful adult.
Our Extended Family
We both come from very small families (Mary has one brother, and Joel is an only child), so having strong relationships with our family and friends is important to us. Our parents like to laugh and travel, are pretty easygoing, and can’t wait to be grandparents! Our friends are like family to us as well.
Christmas is by far our favorite holiday because it has always been a happy and magical time for us and our immediate families. This is usually the time of year when we go on a warm, beachy vacation! Since our extended family members (cousins, aunts, uncles, etc.) all live in different states and far away from each other, the only opportunities for us to get together are at weddings and the occasional family reunion. The reunions are a riot because there are about 40 of us, and we are boisterous Italians! One of our uncles will play songs on the piano, and one of our aunts will dress up in silly costumes to entertain the grandkids. Someone is always playing a practical joke, and the adults will usually tell funny stories about their lives growing up on the farm.
What Led Us To Adoption
Now that we have created a successful work–life balance, we are thrilled to start building our family. Although we tried fertility treatments for years, none were successful, but this only made us more excited about starting our adoption journey. Our best friend of 30 years is adopted, as are her brothers. We also have four cousins and a next-door neighbor who are adopted. We decided adoption was right for us as well.

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
