dear expectant mother
Thank you so much for taking the time to consider us as part of your journey. We may not know your name, but we know how much you love your child.
If we could only tell you one thing, it would be that if chosen to be a family to your child, there is absolutely nothing we wouldn't do for them. They will be deeply loved, kept safe, and given every opportunity in life. We truly cherish being parents and can’t wait to experience the joy that comes with growing our family.
Our dream of growing our family wouldn’t be possible without you, and we promise that your child will always know how strong and incredibly brave you are. We would love for him or her to have a relationship with you so that they can come to know your story and how it fits into their own. Whatever you decide, our hearts and our family will always be open to you.
We know God has a plan for our family, and that we will look back someday and be in awe of the way it has unfolded. We are praying for you to experience that same peace. We can't pretend to know what you are going through, but by choosing to give your baby life, we do know one thing: you are part of a miracle. Your selfless choice will change a family's life! We would be humbled for it to be ours.

Hi, we’re David and Nicole! We met in Chicago in 2013 and immediately bonded over our mutual love of animals. We lived there until after our wedding five years ago and now live near the nation’s capital, where we’ve had so much fun exploring everything there is to do! Our favorite way to spend time together is hiking, and we love the fact that we can do that all year around here. We also love spending time with our friends and family, whether it’s trying a new restaurant, enjoying the national monuments, or just staying in. When we’re not out and about, David can be found tinkering on his computer, and Nicole loves to cook. During the week, we both work from home, which we love because we’re able to be together throughout the day. In the future, Nicole plans to leave work and dedicate her time to raising our family.
Our Home & Pets
We love our neighborhood! Everyone is so friendly, and you always see families walking around and kids playing outside. There are several parks we can walk to, plus a downtown area with activities going on all year long. We especially love all of the opportunities surrounding us; there’s no shortage of new experiences to try! We bought our house three years ago and have done a lot to make it feel like home. Our favorite space is our sunroom, which is the perfect place to spend time together. Now we really feel settled in, and our two cats, Grey and Squash, are pretty happy about that! They’re a special part of our family, and we know they’ll love having another human sibling to bond with!
Our Extended Family
We are blessed with an incredibly devoted family. We also consider our closest friends part of our family and are thankful to have many nearby. Everyone is as excited as we are for our family to grow!
Nicole is an only child, and her parents moved here about two years ago; they actually live in our neighborhood! Her mom takes care of James during the day and we have family dinner at least once a week. We spend a lot of time together on the weekends too.
David is the youngest of three brothers. He has five nieces and nephews, and we love spending time together! We know that as our family grows, we will enjoy fostering those cousin relationships. His parents live in Florida and have been an incredible source of faith and support for us. We make sure to visit them (and stop by Disney World) whenever we can!
We love traveling with friends and family, and have been everywhere from Maine to LA to Costa Rica just in the past year. We feel so fortunate to be able to create so many memories in places near and far with the ones we love!
What Led Us To Adoption
We always knew we would want to incorporate adoption into how we build our family. After learning of our son’s special needs, it felt clear that this was the right path for us, and we are so thankful to have that clarity! Nothing gives us greater joy than being parents, and we know that James will be a loving older brother who lets his younger sibling take center stage. We have so much love and support surrounding us and can’t wait to share all of this with our next child. We see adoption as an incredible blessing and are so excited for this to be part of our family story.

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
