dear expectant mother
Thank you for taking the time to read about our family. We know this is a very difficult decision for you, and we are here to support you every step of the way. We cannot wait to get to know you and introduce you into our lives. We admire the strength and courage you have to consider adoption.
Steve is the youngest of five, and Paula is the oldest of two. Since the beginning of our marriage 11 years ago, we knew we wanted to have children. A third child welcomed into our family will be surrounded by love, encouragement, creativity, and adventure. He or she will have two older siblings to look up to and to receive support and admiration from. Adoption has been in our life plan together, and we are hopeful.
We can promise you your child will be loved, cherished, and surrounded by parents, grandparents, cousins, and so many extended family members who will always be there for them. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking the time to learn about us and for considering us to be your baby’s adoptive parents. We hold you close to our hearts as you make this difficult decision. We pray you find comfort and peace as you navigate the coming months. You can reach out to us at any time with questions or if you just need to talk.
We are a fun, loving, energetic, and caring family of four. We love being the parents to Ryan, almost 11 years old, and Alexandra, 9 years old. Steve is a hard worker and loves his job. In his free time, he likes to go for bike rides with the kids or hiking in a local park. Paula is a stay-at-home mom and yoga teacher and loves helping people. She has been a professional modern dancer for the past 25 years, so there are plenty of impromptu dance parties! We are hoping to add another child to our family and give him or her lots of love. Our home is filled with music, laughter, homemade treats and meals, and so much love. We know this decision is very difficult. We are here for you and will be your support.
Our Home & Pets
Our neighborhood is multicultural and suburban with excellent schools. There are many national, state, and regional parks where we enjoy bicycling, hiking, and walking our dog, Bella, a very friendly hound-ridgeback mix.
Our Extended Family
Together we have nine siblings and 17 nieces and nephews spread throughout New York, Ohio, and Florida. We have six aunts and uncles, and one set of grandparents (Nonna and Papa), and we keep in regular contact with them and our cousins.
We travel to visit family as much as possible and share photos regularly. We’ve enjoyed many summer vacations and numerous holiday celebrations with family. Our family comes to see us often too. When we cannot be with family, we have many friends and neighbors to have festive gatherings with, and we often celebrate our kids’ birthdays and holidays (like the 4th of July, St. Patrick’s Day, etc.) together.

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
