dear expectant mother
Thank you for considering us to be the proud parents of your baby. We deeply admire your consideration of adoption and the love you have shown for your baby. Adoption is the way we’ve always wanted to build a family. We both wish we’d had more siblings growing up and are thrilled to welcome a new little brother or sister for our kids. Family is about an unconditional bond and commitment, and we can’t wait to show a new baby how much we love him or her.
The day our adopted daughter was born was the most powerful and memorable in our lives, both because we were becoming parents for the first time and also because of the incredible bond we felt toward her birthmom at that moment. With both our daughter and our son, we think of their birthmoms often and are grateful every single day. If you choose us, we believe it’s important that your baby knows what a wonderful person you are. We want your baby to know their story and how lucky they are to have so many people who love them.
A new baby adds so much happiness, personality, and love to a family. We teach our children to be strong, brave, and kind. We will continue to raise them with honesty, encouragement, and a strong support system. They will have an excellent education, lots of adventures, and unconditional and unwavering love. We are so excited and hopeful to welcome a new baby into our lives and home.
We met in our first year of teaching, and it was just about love at first sight. Rose is energetic, smart, and adventurous. Paul is kind, honest, and hard-working. We both love sports, traveling, and reading. As lifetime educators, we also love children. We were married in 2006 and now have three beautiful children, two who are adopted. All of our kids are AMAZING! We are very family oriented, and you can often find us on hikes, cooking together, watching our children play soccer, enjoying family game night, or going to a favorite restaurant. We love to travel and have been to France, England, Italy, Egypt, Ireland, all over the U.S., and more! One of our favorite things is to see our kids experience a new place. We always imagined our lives surrounded by a big, loving, happy family, and we are so excited for the adventures still to come!
We live in a wonderful, safe community filled with children. Our town is known as one of the best places in the country to live, and we see that in the kindness of our neighbors, the incredible activities and state parks, and the great weather! We are also very fortunate to have good friends nearby and family that visits often. Our home is around the corner from a highly rated school, beautiful parks, and a great shopping center. We even have little bunnies that run around the neighborhood. Our home has four bedrooms and bathrooms, a playroom, and a big backyard with big trees and a basketball hoop. We enjoy exploring the city, playing outside, and riding bikes around the neighborhood.
Our Extended Family
Family is very important to us, and we are lucky to have a supportive, loving, and close family. We celebrate birthdays and holidays, have regular calls, and find every opportunity to be together.
Rose was born and raised in California, where her parents still live. Her sister lives in Texas with her three children, and our families often find time to get together for holidays, birthdays, and spending time with one another. The six cousins look forward to our vacations together! Rose‘s parents visit every other month and FaceTime with the kids every night. They are very involved and loving grandparents. Rose is also close with her grandfather, four aunts and uncles, and nine cousins and their families. Together we have family dance parties, Olympic watch parties, and rowdy holidays.
Paul’s mom, dad, and brother live in Wisconsin, where he was born and raised. His brother has a daughter the same age as Ellie, and the two love to share stories when they call each other. Paul’s mom has a hobby farm, and our kids love seeing the animals and helping her to garden. We are very lucky to have so many people who love and support us and love our children as their own.
Our Adoption Story
Adoption has always been our first choice. Even in early conversations before we were married, adoption was the way in which we wanted to build our family. As educators, we deeply understand the magnitude of love you can feel for children, regardless of biology. We will never forget how nervous and excited we were to meet our children’s birthmoms and it is a joy to continue to share the growth and experiences of our families. Adoption has always felt like the best and right choice for us as a couple, and we are reminded every day about how happy we are that we made that choice. Our children are the greatest gifts in our lives.

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
