dear expectant mother
We wish you love as you are guided in your difficult decision. We are in awe of your courage and selflessness as you are doing a hard thing. In our home, should you choose us, your child will be showered with love, laughter, and lots of snuggles from our puppies. He or she will grow up with many cousins, play in the yard, share meals with us every night, and feel loved by us during all of life’s journeys. We encourage curiosity and exploration and hope to share our sense of wonder with a child by exploring local outdoor activities and also going on big vacations to faraway places.
We understand growing our family through adoption comes with great responsibility as we are creating a unique family dynamic built upon profound love. We want our future child to feel proud of their identity and where they came from. We are open to whatever contact feels comfortable to you. We hope that includes getting to know you and celebrating events and life experiences together.
We can’t wait to share our lives with our future child and introduce them to the many family members who have been anxiously awaiting their arrival. Please know that in addition to your profound love for your child, he or she is already so loved by us and our family! Thank you for taking the time to get to know us and for considering our family for your child.
We are Peter and Nina. Four years ago we got married in Palm Springs (our favorite place). Peter loves that Nina is a great cook and enthusiastic about life. She has been a teacher for ten years and loves to watch her students learn and grow. Nina loves that Peter is responsible, goal oriented, and also silly. His dad jokes are on point. He is an attorney who loves playing guitar and watching football. Together we enjoy going on walks and hikes with our adorable dogs Enzo and Winnie, hosting dinners with loved ones, and having quiet movie nights on the couch. We love to travel to destinations near and far. Together we have explored Mayan ruins, hiked up a volcano, and tossed coins into the Trevi Fountain. We believe the world is meant to be discovered and hope to share our sense of wonder with a child.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a three-story home on a quiet lake. Our puppies, Enzo and Winnie, love to run around the big yard. We take every opportunity we can to swim and kayak. In the summer, we can sit on our dock and fish in the stocked lake. Our community hosts fun events, including fishing derbies and a Fourth of July celebration with fireworks. We also have a community pool where kids can take swimming lessons. Our home is in a quiet suburb, minutes from nearly every outdoor adventure possible in the Pacific Northwest but with quick and easy access to the surrounding city life. We are a close drive to shopping, restaurants, and kid-friendly parks. Our schools are in an award-winning district.
Our Extended Family
Any child who enters our home should be prepared to be showered with love and adoration from many family members. We both come from families that have been hoping and wishing for another little one to love on. Our support system is strong and eager to take part in raising another family member.
Peter has a very close family. His parents, sister and brother-in-law, and nephews live within thirty minutes of us. One of our traditions around the holidays is dressing up in matching pajamas and having pancakes for brunch. We love playing guitar and singing together. Our niece and nephews are excited to have a new cousin to share their toys with.
Nina comes from a big, loud, loving Filipino family, all of whom live within sixty minutes of us. Above all, we value quality time together, good food, and our community. We enjoy getting together to cook our favorite traditional foods and catch up with one another while the kids play together. Traditions are important to us, and we take every holiday seriously. We start listening to Christmas music in November and go all out decorating our homes for Christmas and all of the other holidays too!
What Led Us To Adoption
Nina felt called to adoption before we were married. She has a heart for children that has taken many forms over the years: big sister, teacher, babysitter, and special needs advocate. Peter has many friends who are adoptees and has witnessed firsthand the love they have for their families. As a married couple, we have been foster parents. We loved sharing our home and our hearts with littles who needed a safe place to land. Being foster parents solidified our desire to grow our family. We are eager and ready to love, parent, and provide for a child of our own. Being forever parents is our greatest dream. We are so grateful adoption will give us the opportunity to realize that dream.

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
