dear expectant mother
Thank you for considering us. We know this is a big life decision, and we deeply admire your selflessness and considering an adoption plan for your baby. We hope that by describing what your child’s life will be like as part of our family, you will get to know us as a couple.
Your baby would grow up with endless hugs, kisses, and laughter. Having fun and playing is important in our lives. With hiking trails right outside our front door, we’ll take her or him hiking and camping along the California coast and in the mountains. We’ll teach our little one how to cook everything from pancakes to a traditional Indian dinner. We’ll make school fun and help them thrive in their academics as well as enjoy after school activities. We’ll nurture their life passions and encourage their curiosity about the world.
We travel often and are excited to explore the world as a family, seeing sights both new and familiar through their eyes. We have always wanted to explore the nation’s national parks, and what child doesn’t love a good road trip!
We both come from big, loving families and are eager to start our own. Your child will be surrounded by young cousins who would be thrilled to have another playmate. Our mothers are especially excited to be grandmas and are eagerly awaiting the arrival of a newborn. Please know that your baby would grow up surrounded by love, not just from us, but from an extended family ready to embrace another little one.
Juan is a director at a technology focused non profit. Prakash is an emergency medicine physician who has been practicing for just over 10 years. We met over 6 years ago through friends on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Juan knew early on that Prakash was “husband material” and Prakash knew that he was falling for Juan and started the pursuit! Soon into our relationship, Juan had the opportunity to work for an organization working to legalize marriage equality, which was an incredible opportunity but took him across the country. 2 years of long distance solidified our love and desire to be with each other. Soon after moving back to the same city, Juan proposed and Prakash said yes through many tears of joy. We've been so fortunate to find one another and fall for each other even more as the years go by. We even commute together every day to have as much time together as possible. We are best friends.
Our Home & Pets
We recently moved to a home in Northern California in a family oriented community. It’s a beautiful 4 bedroom house that has plenty of space for a growing family and for our extended families to visit and stay with us. Our home is bright and warm with plenty of playspace for our future little one with their many cousins. Across the street we have access to numerous hiking trails that lead you to national forests and the Pacific Ocean. We’re close to many road and mountain biking trails. There are parks nearby and top notch schools are a walk or short drive away. We’re excited to take our child on hikes in a carrier when they’re young, and as they get older, take them camping, biking on local trails, and explore the great outdoors that Northern California is famous for.
Our Extended Family
Prakash has two older siblings who together have 5 children that we love to play with and see often. He is very close with his mom, whom we also see frequently. Though we thought his mom was satisfied with so many grandchildren, we are often asked about where we are in the adoption process and how soon we will have a child - she is clearly eager to have a 6th grandchild!
Juan has a very close knit family, who have become closer since the recent passing of his grandfather. He is an only child with numerous cousins, one of whom is like a nephew to him. Though that nephew is stationed in Hawaii with the Army, we stay in touch and are able to see him a few times a year. Juan’s parents are very doting, loving and incredibly excited to be grandparents! His mom even has a rocking chair picked out.
The holidays are a very important time for both of our families with lots of food, games, and movies. We plan to continue our annual celebrations with our very large extended family and host future holidays!
What Led Us To Adoption
We got married just over 2 years ago, and long before that, we talked about our desire to have kids and grow our family beyond the two of us. We've met many couples in the past 2 years who have recently adopted newborns, and they've helped affirm the decision we made in growing our family through adoption. It's heartwarming to see couples who are unable to have children on their own meet women giving such an amazing gift, knowing that their child will be in a loving, happy home.

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
