Welcoming your baby into our home would be an enormous privilege and something we don’t take lightly. Whatever your decision is, we want the best for you and your baby.
Ben & Mona
We have very different interests. Ben is technical and likes finding out how stuff works, and Mona is creative and artistic. As a couple, we are strong and united. What binds us is how we try to move through life with honesty, thoughtfulness, and love. We treasure spending quality time together and connecting with family and friends. We make a point of having a morning coffee and dinner together every day. We enjoy simple things: old movies, outdoors, cooking and hosting dinner parties, going to local markets, concerts, and nearby beaches. We also love traveling, and since our families live mostly abroad, we visit often.
Mona About Ben: “I very much admire his generosity and appreciate his protective nature and trust.”
Ben About Mona: “I appreciate her openness, honesty, and positivity and the fact that I can always rely on her.”
Our Home & Pets
We are a part of a wonderful community. Our home is located near Lake Michigan and is close to many parks with playgrounds as well as excellent schools. There is plenty of space to grow our family and for friends and family to gather. It is a three-bedroom, three-bath mid-century modern home with a lot of character and a big backyard where we spend our summers. We have completed some renovations and are still planning on updating more, including converting a guest room into a nursery. Of all the places we lived in, this neighborhood is one of our favorites—kind people and beautiful outdoors. Our street is quiet and perfect for bike rides and walks.
Our Extended Family
Family is EVERYTHING. We are not close geographically as our families are spread across the world, but we make sure we stay in touch. That means we travel quite a bit. Our extended families are a crucial part of our lives, and spending time with people dear to us is something we look forward to every year. We choose a country, and we travel to meet each other, which is perfect. These trips are a lot of fun, and they allow us to connect with siblings, nieces, nephews, parents, aunts, and uncles and explore different cultures at the same time. We also video call whenever possible and do things together despite the distance.
Friends are a BLESSING and a part of our EXTENDED FAMILY. We are first-generation Americans who came to the U.S. in our twenties. Being bicultural and bilingual, we feel like we can fit in anywhere. Being immersed in two cultures gave us the gift of having an eclectic mix of friends, who have provided support and taught us to be open-minded and to appreciate cultural differences even more.
What Led Us To Adoption
They say a baby changes everything, but for us, that change never came. The years of treatments and trying brought frustration and disappointments, but we never gave up hope for that change and the opportunity to experience the joy of watching a person grow, develop, discover, and learn. We’ve always had a strong desire to have a large family and become parents. We have been quite fortunate in many other areas of our lives, but nothing would compare to the delight of raising a child. We are thrilled at the idea of being parents and having the family we always wanted.

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
