This is our very first piece of communication with you. Our first thoughts are pure joy. You have found us and are reading our letter and profile. We hope and pray that something in your heart might tell you that we are meant to be your baby’s parents. All of our dreams and prayers of becoming parents might be answered by you. If you feel comfortable we would like to get to know you and build a relationship with you. We wish we had the perfect words to calm some of your fears.
We have such a deep knowing that God has chosen a little life for us to love through his or her lifetime. We will happily nurture them to become the person they are meant to be, we do not wish to place our little one on a pedestal that is too high to achieve. We understand that he or she may have struggles in life, but we know that anything he or she walks through we will support in the best way possible for him or her. We promise to give our child everything he or she needs, to work for what he or she wants, and to be thankful for what is given freely by those who love him or her.
As we think of you, we truly want to give you a huge hug. We are sure we will be fighting back tears because even now in the midst of writing this letter it has been hard not to cry. We want to say, “thank you for being our hope.” We see your decision for adoption as an act to choose a life of opportunity and adventure for your little one. We can’t wait to get to know you and walk beside you as much as you request.
Natasha is a Kindergarten teacher. She loves spending time with her beautiful family. She loves photography, creating DIY projects, coffee dates, baking, camping, fishing, and boating. Michael has always loved airplanes. As a young boy, he would work with his grandpa in the hangar building airplanes and wood canoes. This passion became his career as an aircraft mechanic, specializing in helicopters. Michael loves problem solving, wood-crafting in his shop, fishing with his dad, and exploring. He also enjoys his time with our two beautiful god-daughters.
Michael’s goofiness brings laughter into our home, and Natasha strives to make our home peaceful and welcoming. We are thankful that we found each other and get to enjoy this adventure we call life. Together, we most enjoy summers living at the lake. Summers are filled with jumping off the docks into the lake, eating sunflower seeds around a picnic table with our cousins, skiing, tubing, catching fireflies, bonfires, and grandma’s homemade blueberry pancakes.
Our Home & Pets
Our home is a large brick home with an open floor plan that provides space for lots of family get-togethers’. It is a quiet neighborhood in a very small family oriented town. It has a fireplace room usually decorated with each season! Our home has a large family room and large farmhouse style kitchen with a huge dining table to hold large family dinners. We have a large backyard with a pool and a workshop for Michael with a built in playhouse on the second level. We are on a dead end road with young couples starting to raise families. We live a block away from a large lake that we take our boat out on the weekends for picnics, watersports, and fishing. We also have two Chihuahua mixed with Terrier dogs that are a year old. They are known as “happy” puppies that love children and babies.
Our Extended Family
Our extended family is very large, fun, and close to each other on both sides. We were raised very similar with involving watersports and visiting Ohio/Michigan area during the summertime. Our families enjoy a lot of traditions inherited by our grandparents. We enjoy birthday dinners on Sundays after church, summer BBQ cookouts and swimming, boating, boogie boarding in the ocean, gardening, bike riding and going to the park, and holidays spent together as a family with stories of a made up a bear called “Goomenhighmer” under the Christmas Tree. We enjoy the leaves changing colors during the fall and going to lots of fall festivals. We also grew up in church and being a part of fun church picnics and celebrations. Natasha’s parents were foster parents to children that still continue to call her parents’ dad and mom. Often her family parties are just like when she was growing up with all of her brother and sisters around (blood, adopted, and fostered)!
What Led Us To Adoption
Adoption has always been a part of our future plans. When we were dating we realized adoption has played a vital role in both of our lives. Michael’s grandfather was adopted at a young age. Natasha has two siblings that are adopted. Natasha’s parents have always shared how her two adopted siblings were chosen by God to be their children, just as much as the children placed in my mother’s womb. We also know there is a reason why we have always felt that adopting a child is a part of our journey. We have had the heartache of infertility and the loss of a miscarriage. This struggle has given us a deeper understanding that adoption was always a part of our plan.

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
