We are deeply grateful for the opportunity to be a part of your baby’s life and promise to always provide them with unconditional love, support, and guidance. Thank you for considering us on this life-changing journey. We are ready to be a parent to your baby and provide them with a lifetime of happiness and love.
With heartfelt gratitude,
Pedro and Miriam
We met in 2005 at work and have been in love ever since! When Pedro met Miriam’s children, John and Jomary, they immediately hit it off. We were married in 2008 and relocated from New Jersey to beautiful South Carolina in 2011. Miriam worked as a second-grade teacher before returning to school and receiving her MBA in 2020. Pedro is currently in graduate school, and both Pedro and Miriam work in technology. We are incredibly proud of our children's accomplishments. John is an Air Force veteran, and Jomary received her MBA in 2020. Both work in tech. We have two loving dogs, Roxy and Lily. We enjoy traveling, cooking at home (Miriam is a fantastic cook, and Pedro loves to eat!), gardening, watching movies, and spending time with friends and family. We are fluent in Spanish and visit Miriam’s family in the Dominican Republic every summer.
Our Home & Pets
We live near the gorgeous Blue Ridge Mountains of South Carolina. Our house has four bedrooms, a family room where we watch movies and play games, and a large, fenced backyard with a newly built deck and screened-in porch. We live in a lovely subdivision with a clubhouse, tennis court, soccer field, and beautiful walking trails. On our street alone, there are three young families with children. At any given moment, you will see our neighbors walking their dogs around the neighborhood. Speaking of dogs, we have a ten-year-old boxer mix, Roxy, and a two-year-old peekapoo, Lily.
Our Extended Family
Pedro’s parents and his recently married sister live in the next town over. We visit them often and get together for Sunday dinners. Pedro has two brothers who reside in Florida, each with young children.
Miriam has a brother and sister who reside up north. We visit her mother in the Dominican Republic every summer. We make a big family trip out of it and spend lots of time with extended family.
Birthdays and holidays are big deals in our household. No matter how old our kids are, we always throw them a birthday party with balloons and decorations (“Ma, we aren't kids anymore!”). Pedro always prefers a pizza party for his birthday! We are all over-the-moon excited about celebrating another little one’s birthday together!
For Thanksgiving and Christmas, Miriam spends a few days prepping the big dinner. We celebrate “Noche Buena,” which is Christmas Eve in Spanish, with a large dinner. We get together as a family to prep several dishes. One special dish is called “Pasteles en Hoja.” It’s a laborious effort that takes almost the entire day to prepare, but it’s worth it!
What Led Us To Adoption
Pedro met Miriam's children when they were 10 and 12 and helped raise them into the wonderful people they are today. We want to expand our family and decided to go the adoption route. We’ve always wanted to adopt children, even before meeting each other. We explored foster-to-adoption and had the opportunity to foster children. We fostered siblings ages three and five. We were blessed to have them in our home for a short time and were happy to have helped them in their time of need. We want to make our home a forever home for your child and for them to be part of 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!
