dear expectant mother

Nobody knows what the future will bring, and that must be terrifying for you. We can’t take away your worries, but we can tell you that we are scared, too. We’re scared because we can only hope, but can’t know for certain, that we’ll get to welcome a child into our lives. We worry about you and this little baby we hope to raise. We find ourselves wondering if you are safe and feeling well, if you had to work too hard today, or if you’re feeling all alone. We talk about what you’re facing, how hard this is for you, hoping all the while that you have someone who is there for you, helping you through it all.

We think about your baby often. We see him or her coming home with us, meeting big brother Evan, and settling into peaceful mornings with Mom and happy evenings with Dad. We imagine years rolling by, with your child and Evan being best friends and creating a lifetime of happy memories.

Despite any worries, above all we are grateful and hopeful. We know we are so lucky to have a happy, healthy family, and we are hopeful you will choose to make your baby a special member of our family. In return, we will honor your decision every day by giving your baby a life filled with loving parents, a wonderful brother, a great education, and all the understanding, encouragement, and love possible.

About Us

We met in 2003, at a concert in our hometown. Meghan was attending the show with one of Peter's older sisters, and we were introduced to each other there. It wasn’t long after that we went on our first date, and we have been in love and together ever since. In April 2008, we got married, and it’s one of the happiest days of our lives, overshadowed only by the birth of our son, Evan, who is now three years old. Peter has been a public service officer for over twenty years, and Meghan left her position with an insurance company to stay with Evan, and she uses her artistic side to make scrapbooks and greeting cards. We share a mutual love of music, movies, books, and are dedicated parents excited to grow our family.

Our Home & Pets

We bought our four-bedroom, three-bath dream home in 2013. Since moving in, we’ve added a big playroom and have fenced in the large backyard, both of which are places Evan loves to bring his cousins or his little friends to dig into toys or play pretend. It's in a quiet suburban neighborhood, with a little park at the end of our street. The whole area has proven to be great for kids, with fantastic schools, lots of other parks, and a massive library with wonderful children’s programs. We couldn’t be happier to raise our family here.

Our Extended Family

Peter is the youngest of three children, with two older sisters and three nephews. His father, an engineer, was born and raised in Greece, and his mother, a nurse, grew up on a farm in the Midwest. Tragically, we lost them both when they were in a car accident in 2011. We keep their stories alive by talking to Evan about his grandparents and showing him lots of photos.

Meghan has six sisters, three brothers, thirteen nieces and nephews, one great-nephew, and two great-nieces! Her dad, now retired from house painting, grew up in Ireland and moved to America in the 60s, where he met her mom. We live just minutes from them, and all of Meghan’s siblings and their families live nearby. With a family this big, there’s always something going on: birthdays, graduations, or just stopping in to say hello. We see each other at least weekly!

What Led Us To Adoption

From the early days of our relationship, we talked about having kids, and two or three children was always our dream. In 2012, we were blessed with the birth of our dear son, Evan, but it took a lot of time, effort, and medical bills to make that happen. Once we had our little guy, we knew we had more love to give to more babies and that Evan would be a wonderful older brother. We’ve spent the past three years cycling through unsuccessful fertility treatments, all the while thinking about adoption, and finally coming to the conclusion that this is the path forward for our family. We are beyond ready to welcome a new baby into our hearts and into our home.

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!
