dear expectant mother
We thank you for giving us the greatest gift, a human life. We look forward to meeting your beautiful child and making he or she part of our lives. We will promise to be open and honest with your child. The miracle that is growing inside of you is the miracle that we have been praying for.
Please know as soon as your baby is old enough to understand, we will always celebrate you and talk about you and share with your child his/her birth story. We cannot wait to tell your child it was you, as birth mom, who held them in your tummy safely, until it was our turn.
We wait with huge hearts and open arms for our turn to partner with you as parents, sharing dreams and love for the life you hold for us.
Our names are Nick and Darcie. We feel so lucky every day to have found each other. We started as friends in high school and eventually began dating in 1997. We married in 2004 and have been blessed with a fun-filled, happy marriage ever since. Our friends and family always comment on the continuous laughter and jokes we share. We work in very different fields. Nick works as an IT Security Analyst for a large company and has worked there since 2003. He enjoys working on computers and troubleshooting various virus threats. Darcie works as an Emergency Room Nurse in Minneapolis treating a very diverse group of patients. Darcie loves taking care of sick or injured people and love the satisfaction of knowing what she does makes a difference.
Our Home & Pets
We own a 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom home in a neighborhood with fun neighbors from all different backgrounds. There are many walking trails, parks, an ice skating rink, and many grassy areas for the dogs and children to run and play. You will know which house is ours by our loud laughter and the smell of barbeque. Nick is an excellent griller and makes amazing meals for our family and friends whenever we entertain, which is often. We are always hosting the holidays with our big, noisy loving family. We love gardening so our backyard almost always has something blooming or growing, except during the cold Minnesota winters! We have the best neighborhood at Halloween with our next-door neighbors turning their garage into a haunted house. I love decorating for all of the holidays, especially Christmas.
We have two “fur babies” that we rescued, Cooper a black lab and Miley a yellow lab mix. Cooper loves to fetch, swim and play outside in our large, fenced-in yard. We love and spoil him every chance we get. He is a big, gentle giant who is great with all ages and has plenty of slobbery kisses to share! Miley is a sweet puppy and loves children.
Our Extended Family
We will not be alone in our efforts to love and spoil your child! We are surrounded by a close-knit family and many dear friends. Our family and friends are ready to help, hold, advise, change and love a baby we have been dreaming of for so many years. Nick is an only child with his mother living close by. She is already sharing parenting tips with us and is always here to lend a helping hand! Sadly, his dad recently passed away in 2016. Darcie’s parents also live close by, but our family time together is most enjoyed up at their cabin only two hours north of us. We spend weekends and holidays fishing, boating, and swimming there. The cabin is the heart and soul of our family and love to spend as much time as possible throughout the spring, summer, and fall.
Darcie has a younger sister with whom she is very close and will undoubtedly play a big role in the life of our child. She is 11 years younger than Darcie. While growing up, Darcie was like a second mother to her and played a very active role in her upbringing. She just married in June 2017 to a wonderful guy who we are so lucky to have as part of our family. Darcie also has a middle brother who lives in North Dakota with his wife and kids. We enjoy seeing them on holidays and special events but talk to them all the time.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have always wanted to be parents. Despite countless attempts at fertility we have not been blessed with a child in the traditional way and decided our dream of parenthood was through adoption. We promise that we will be great parents and we hope to have a relationship with you as well, if you choose to. We are excited to start this journey with you.

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
