Thank you for considering us. We don’t think it was by accident that our paths crossed today and we’re hopeful that you feel the same. We are fortunate and grateful to have a large support system and we hope that you are also getting all the care and support you need from your loved ones.
Our journey prior to adoption has not been easy. Early in our marriage, we planned to start a family. Even when we thought we could conceive, we always considered adoption as an option to expand our family. When we learned of our infertility we knew that adoption wasn’t just an option, we knew it was the path we were always meant to take to create our family. We believe that everything happens for a reason and we know in our hearts that it doesn’t matter if our child is biological or adopted.
Although this may have been a difficult decision for you, we hope that it also brings you peace knowing that your child will be well cared for, nurtured, and loved. We don’t know your journey thus far but we hope that you will allow us to take the remainder of it with you. We admire your courage and we are excited about the blessing that awaits.
We met in 2005 through mutual friends and married in 2008. We are both gainfully employed: Mick as a steelworker and Lupe in a behavioral health center for adolescents. We are loving parents to 3 rescue dogs and enjoy spending time with them and with family and friends. We enjoy entertaining at home and spending evenings by the fire pit when weather permits. Other times we’re content curling up on the couch while we catch up on our favorite television shows. Mutual interests include collecting comics, attending sporting events, concerts, theatre, dining out, community events, and vacationing. Mick likes to golf and fish and Lupe enjoys crafting and her monthly book club. We both share household responsibilities and cooking. Lupe’s specialty dinner is creamy chicken enchiladas and Mick loves firing up the grill to make his signature baby back ribs. We are both eager to start our family and look forward to sharing our culture and family traditions and we’re excited about beginning new traditions.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a diverse suburban community in a 4 bedroom bi-level home with a large fenced-in backyard. Besides the nursery, there is ample space for play and entertainment in our family room which has an adjoining game room. Our neighborhood has several parks within walking distance of our home, and our town frequently has community activities which include festivals, parades, and holiday events. Recreational and team sports available include little league baseball, soccer, swimming, dance, and gymnastics. Our town has great schools and there are 2 libraries nearby. Our 3 dogs are affectionate and child friendly and they love snuggling and giving kisses.
Our Extended Family
Mick had a loving and devoted dad who is unfortunately deceased but we are grateful to have a close and loving relationship with Mick’s mom and step-dad and we are especially close with Mick’s brother. We enjoy spending time with him, our sister-in-law, two nephews, and niece. We also have a close relationship with Lupe’s brother and are happy that he lives only minutes away. Lupe’s parents are divorced but both live only a short distance away and we talk with them regularly. Her sister attends college nearby and we spend time with her during breaks and occasionally on weekends. Having a large and tight knit extended family of aunts, uncles, cousins, and other relatives we often attend birthday parties, barbeques, family gatherings, and holiday celebrations.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have always wanted a child and planned to start a family shortly after marriage. We tried to conceive but were unable and fertility testing determined that we will not be able to in the future. We still believe that we are meant to be parents and have a family of our own. Our dream to become nurturing and loving parents will be possible 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!Return to Waiting Families
