dear expectant mother
We want to express our gratitude for the love and caring you have shown while considering an adoption plan. We want you to know, if you choose us, your child will have a loving, nurturing, and supportive household to grow into an amazing person. We understand and appreciate that this is a difficult decision, and we want to reassure you that we will always keep you and your family as an integral part of the child’s life if we are blessed with this gift. You and your decision will always hold a special place in our hearts, and we are eternally grateful that you have decided to consider our family for your child.
Your child will be surrounded by an enormous group of family and friends that will be there to provide neverending, unconditional love. Our home will be the center of celebrating important life events, holidays, and lifelong traditions. These will be the building blocks to raise your child to be their best and most authentic self. Whatever is the best for the child will be at the center of everything we do.
Given where we live and our environment, your child will be provided every opportunity for a good education, exposure to diverse cultural experiences, and love from two very supportive parents who will give your child anything and everything they need to be their best self. We know this is an incredibly difficult decision, and if this provides you with any comfort, just know that we will love your child always and forever. Thank you for considering us!
With love & respect,
Ryan & Diana
We are an active and creative couple with lots of love to give and share. We enjoy engaging in new experiences through travel, concerts, museums, hiking, and being outdoors. Ryan is a civil attorney dealing with personal injury cases, and Diana is the district manager for an international spirits company. In the summer, we are outside tending to our vegetable garden or getting together with friends for dinners, concerts, or the occasional boat ride. When the weather does not allow us to be outside, we use our free time on our other creative interests, like music (both of us play instruments), theater, wellness, and cooking. We are able to work from home most days, providing us extra time to cook delicious and healthy meals (another of our favorite things), using veggies from our garden. We are a home full of love, laughter, music, gardening, wellness, friends, and family, and we are ready to expand our family further.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a vibrant, diverse, family-friendly, and inclusive community that is regularly rated as one of the best places to live and raise a family in Illinois. Our home is located in a close-knit community with neighbors stopping by to say hello, and our street has block parties twice a year with all-day events for adults and children. There are two large parks and community centers within a five-minute walk from our house and several more throughout the community. Our home has three bedrooms, a finished basement, and a backyard, giving our future child places to play and learn. We have one small dog named Morty, who loves children and can’t wait to be a big brother!
Our Extended Family
We both come from fairly small families. We are so blessed to have so many close friends who, combined with our families, have created an amazing chosen family. Most of our friends have small children and are still growing their own families that will be like cousins/siblings to our child. Several of our friends’ children call us Aunt Diana and Uncle Ryan. Diana has a sister who lives close by and is so excited to become an aunt. Ryan’s parents both live nearby as well and cannot wait to welcome a baby into the family. We have several aunts, uncles, and cousins we are close with. Everyone is over the moon for us to expand our family.
We are very big on celebrating holidays and special events, and those celebrations have been transitioning to being held at our home. We recently celebrated our first Christmas at our house, with many more to come! Family is incredibly important to us, and we prioritize it and try to hold any gathering at a place special to us. We recently traveled to Diana’s family ranch in Texas to get the family together.
What Led Us To Adoption
Diana felt for most of her adult life that she had a desire to be an adoptive parent, and when we became a couple, we learned we both shared a desire to be adoptive parents. We are caring and nurturing people who want to raise a family and share our love with as many people as we can. We have the utmost respect for each other, and we came to our individual decisions prior to becoming a couple, which made the decision to choose adoption as our family’s plan the best one for us.

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
