dear expectant mother

We imagine you’re scared as you read this…scared about this big decision, and because no one knows what the future will bring, and because you are in a position that’s led you to consider placing your baby for adoption. 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 this much wanted 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, the unknown future it’s facing now, and we hope with all our hearts that you will see the future for your baby that we see. We see Baby coming home with us, meeting big brother Evan, and settling into peaceful mornings with Mom and happy evenings with Dad home from work. We can imagine years rolling by with the two of them now best friends – all of it just a bunch of regular old days, making up 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 that you will choose to make your baby a special member of our family. In return, we will honor your decision every day by giving this baby a life filled with loving parents, a wonderful brother, a great education, and all the understanding, encouragement, and love possible.

About Us

We share a mutual love of music, movies, books, and are dedicated parents to our three-year-old son, Evan.
We met in 2003 at a concert in our hometown. Meghan was attending the show with one of Peter's older sisters, and was introduced to Peter there. It wasn’t long after that we went on our first date and have been in love and together ever since. In April 2008 we got married. Peter has been a police officer for over twenty years. Meghan left her position with an insurance company to stay home with Evan, and she uses her artistic side to make scrapbooks and greeting cards.

Our Home & Pets

We bought our four-bedroom, three-bath dream home in 2013. Since moving in we’ve added a big playroom and fenced in the large backyard, both places where 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 3 children, with 2 older sisters and 3 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 6 sisters, 3 brothers, and 13 nieces and nephews! 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 my parent’s house, and all of my 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!
