dear expectant mother
Your consideration of adoption is truly an act of selflessness. Choosing a family to raise your child is one of the most important decisions you will make, and we are incredibly humbled. Thank you for taking the time to look at our profile and for considering us to raise your child.
We want you to know that although life provides a lot of unknowns, there are also a few things we can promise to give your child. We promise to love and cherish your child. We promise to rock them to sleep and read them bedtime stories for years to come. We promise to kiss the bumps and bruises when needed. We promise to let them eat way too much cake on their birthdays. We promise to always play with them. We promise to let them sit on our laps going down the slide until they are ready to do so on their own. We promise to bend down and push the tricycle up and down the sidewalk until they are able to pedal on their own. We promise to teach them how to be kind and respectful. We promise to let them have a voice of their own. We promise to learn about and take part in their interests. We promise to truly love your child unconditionally. Most of all, we promise to tell them where they came from and how grateful we are to the mother who gave us the gift of becoming a family.
Thank you for your selfless courage to embark on this journey. We are extremely thankful for your time to consider us with the greatest gift of loving and raising your child.
We met at church nine years ago, and we got married in 2016. Our faith is a big part of who we are, and we always aim to stay involved in our church. Nyla is outgoing, creative, and kind, with a huge heart for people and animals. She is now a full-time stay-at-home mom, but before that, she was a dental hygienist. Her hobbies include playing volleyball, working out, and traveling. Moses is outgoing, honest, and resilient. He works for a company that is involved in pharmaceuticals. It takes him all over the world, and he loves it. His hobbies include working out, reading, and traveling. In our downtime, we like to have laidback days around our home, playing in the yard with our son, cheering on our favorite sports teams, or just spending time as a family watching movies.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a quiet and established neighborhood. The houses in our neighborhood were built in the ’60s, and this brings a lot of individual character to them. We live on a corner lot, which is perfect for our son to ride his tricycle on the sidewalk. The yard is perfect for kicking a soccer ball around, having a spontaneous picnic, or Easter egg hunts. We have some of the best neighbors, who are always willing to help at any time. We have three cats: Strider, Moggie, and Robin. Robin is extremely playful. He and Ellis play together all the time. Moggie is a very nervous cat and will only come out once she gets to know you, and Strider likes to relax all the time.
Our Extended Family
Nyla has two brothers and a niece. Her mom and dad are no longer married, but they get along really well and we are still able to have holidays and family get-togethers as one family. This is something she really appreciates, especially as we have started to have a family. Her grandmother is 96 and still living on her own and hosting the holidays. Fun fact: Nyla has only ever missed one holiday with her grandma.
Moses grew up in Kenya, Africa. His mother, his father, his sister, one brother, two nieces, and two nephews live there.He has a brother, niece, and nephew here in Iowa. We travel to Kenya at least once a year. We usually try to take a vacation with his family while we are there. We also spend time with them in their homes as well. Ellis absolutely loves getting to play with his nieces and nephews! Family get-togethers have really been a highlight for all of us.
What Led Us To Adoption
God put adoption on both of our hearts a long time ago, even years before we had met each other. God is truly the reason we are adopting. He led us to our son, Ellis, and his birthmother, and we are so incredibly grateful for what He has given us in our lives. It is why we want to continue to expand our family through adoption. Adopting Ellis has truly changed our lives. He is the biggest joy in our lives. Seeing him grow over the last three years has been life changing. He will be the absolute best big brother! We can’t wait for him to be best friends with his sibling!

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
