dear expectant mother
We can’t begin to express our gratitude for you and your decision to travel this path. It’s also difficult to imagine the feelings, emotions, thoughts, and questions you’ve had about this process and the future. We feel honored that you would take the time to read about us and our family. Your strength, courage, and selflessness are all qualities of an angel itself. The unknown of the future is a scary thing, but we hope to dispel that worry and ease your emotional turmoil as best as we can.
We have taken it as a sign from the universe that adoption is meant for us. When we first met, we both agreed adoption was an amazing opportunity we were both open to. After Patrick’s accident, we learned having biological children wasn’t going to be an option and took comfort in the words of Patrick’s late mother when she would say, “Whatever is supposed to happen will happen.” We are so hopeful and excited to grow our family. We can’t wait to give a child a world full of experiences and opportunities, like making neighborhood friends, playing sports, swimming, and jumping on a trampoline. We’re not the only ones who are excited either. Our parents, friends, and family are eager to celebrate birthdays, holidays, and get-togethers with a brand-new member. Your decision would make our dreams come true. You truly are an angel for us and everything we have been waiting for. Thank you for considering us!
We were first introduced by Patrick’s sister-in-law, whom Xenia was going to college with. Shortly after, we began dating and later married. Our relationship has always been full of laughter and care for one another. We are both very structured and organized people who always take a calm and relaxed approach in any situation. In addition to our constant laughter, we also take pride in how we both make up for each other's weaknesses. While Xenia is clean and Patrick can be messy, Patrick can always make Xenia laugh with his bad jokes and “impressive” random facts when she is bored. We are a couple that is motivated and loves to learn. Xenia is a passionate first grade teacher, while Patrick is finishing his degree in accounting. We both love spending time with our families, friends, pets, and neighbors while enjoying potlucks, game nights, swimming, and get-togethers.
Our Home & Pets
We live with our dogs, Teddy and Elsa, along with our small parrot, Fern, in a newly built home in Arizona. Our community was developed in 2022, which gave us the wonderful opportunity to meet almost all of our neighbors. Our neighborhood is safe, quiet, and full of kids who love to use the community park and playground. Our neighbors have become a second family to us. We have regular meet-ups, barbeques, cook-offs, and holiday parties. Our home is clean and spacious with a dedicated room for a child and a spare guest room for family visits.
Our Extended Family
Together we have a large combined extended family, with most living in Arizona. We spend a lot of family time together having barbecues, pool parties, birthday parties, and holiday celebrations and will find any and every excuse to get together.
On Patrick’s side, we can always find his dad doing something outdoors, his two younger brothers laughing and watching sports, and his sister-in-law, who is Xenia’s closest friend, teaching or playing with her dogs. His two grandmothers will be giving advice to anyone who will listen while his grandfather spends time with the other pilots at the local airport. His two uncles will be building something and laughing at each other. His cousin will be riding her horse or hiking with her dogs, and his nephew will be outside playing sports or inside playing video games when he isn’t having a sleepover at our house.
On Xenia’s side, we’ll find her mom planning the next family vacation, her dad gardening or cooking up a new recipe that is always too spicy for Patrick, and her sister telling a story about her latest cruise adventure. Her uncle will be watching the newest movies while her grandparents and other extended family FaceTime us from England.
What Led Us To Adoption
When we first started dating, we found a shared interest in adoption and considered it for the future. After a motorcycle accident in 2020, we found having biological children was not a possibility, but this did not stop us from wanting to grow our family. Instead, it was a clear sign to us that adoption is a wonderful chance for us to have children and fill our home with even more love.

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
