We couldn’t begin to explain how excited we are to start a family. We have been dreaming of bringing home a precious baby girl or boy for years now and we can barely contain our joy at the thought of it. We can’t stop thinking of that day. We love each other so much and now we are ready to love someone even more, someone who will be the center of our lives. We can’t imagine what joy this cherished child will bring.
We also can’t imagine what a hard decision this must be for you and we want you to know how much we admire your selflessness and courage for considering an adoption plan, and for looking at us as potential parents. We are forever grateful.
We want you to know that we would be honored to completely invest our lives in your child. We would be privileged to care for and nurture your child every step of the way, guiding him or her through good days and hard days. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us.
We love to be silly and have fun! We’re a little quirky, but we’re okay with that. Our friends and family love us for that. Maybe that’s why we’re both so great with kids. Laura works with babies, preschoolers, and teenagers at church, and Paul is a great volunteer. We love spending time with kids, and Laura especially has enjoyed learning hands-on about how to teach kids about God at all different stages of life. We’re also very passionate about volunteering in our community and we can’t wait to teach our own children about how meaningful helping others can be. We also have big hearts for animals, and we try to make friends with the many neighborhood dogs. But mostly we just love spending time together. Whether it’s rock climbing, going on vacation, or just walking to the grocery store, we always find a way to make our time together fun.
Our Home & Pets
We live in an up and coming neighborhood in a small city, and we love it here! There are so many fun places to see: museums, parks, and trails by the river and lake. We also love that we live right next door to our rock climbing gym. Our five-year-old niece loves to visit because there are so many family-friendly activities for us. When we’re not out and about we also enjoy relaxing at home with our two sweet dogs, Sydney and Roary.
Our Extended Family
We love our extended family. We each have an older brother, and they both are married with kids. And we love to spend time with our niece and nephews. We’re thrilled that, if you choose us, your child will have loving aunts, uncles, cousins and four very excited grandparents! We’re both close with our parents and know that they are going to be strong influences, just like our grandparents were for us. Paul’s parents love to find silly adventures and try new things, while Laura’s parents enjoy the simple things at home like baking cookies or telling stories on the back porch. Both sets of grandparents are genuine and loving people who love their children and grandchildren fiercely.
What Led Us To Adoption
Laura always knew she wanted to adopt. Her mom was adopted and it was a really normal thing for our family. Her maternal grandparents were no different from her paternal grandparents. It didn’t matter that we weren’t biologically related. All that mattered was that we were a loving family. Paul was always very open to the possibility of adopting too. Once we were ready to start a family, the decision to adopt was easy. Now that Paul is finished with pharmacy school and has an amazing job, we couldn’t be more ready to add to our loving family.

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
