dear expectant mother

Dear Expectant Mother - We know you must be going through an extremely difficult time right now, and we are very sorry. We understand that you are considering adoption for your child and we feel blessed that you are considering us to parent your child. If you choose us, we promise to honor you by providing the warm and loving home you want for your child. We already have a very loving family and all three of us would be honored to welcome your child into our family and home.

We love spending quality time together doing things like creating and sharing meals, playing games, traveling, and being with friends and extended family.We have created a warm nurturing home environment that we cannot wait to share and George Jr. is extremely excited as well to have a new baby brother or sister! He has always wanted more siblings. The baby will have his/her own room full of books and stuffed animals and we cannot wait to read and learn and grow together. We feel that the best thing a child can receive is love. We are open to discussing how an open or semi-open relationship feels for you and how we can always let the child know how loved he/she is by everyone!

About Us

Shannon is Yoga & Meditation Teacher & Health & Wellness Coach. George is a Managing Director of Operations & Client Service for a large financial firm.

We were set up by some mutual friends three years ago in Chicago (April 2015) and we were engaged 6 months later! We had each been married/divorced, but we knew when we met one another that this was the person we wanted to spend the rest of our lives with. Having children together came up the first night we met. George has one child (George Jr.) from his first marriage but always wanted more. Shannon did not have any children but had always wanted them. We both agreed on that first date that we definitely would be blessed to have additional children together.

Our Home & Pets

We live in a 4 story/4 bedroom home with lots of indoor/outdoor space for the baby to play and we love having friends over and sharing our space!! Our home is centrally located in a very safe neighborhood and with close proximity to everything that our city has to offer including several parks and a beautiful lakeshore. Our block/neighborhood is full of families and young children who all know one another and get together frequently.. We love this aspect of our neighborhood. We are close to many great public and private schools.

Our Extended Family

Shannon has a pretty large family with two brothers, her sister-in-law, 6 nieces/nephews and many more aunts, uncles, cousins and all her cousins’ children! Many holidays are spent with Shannon’s extended family...Easter,Thanksgiving and Christmas traditions that the whole family loves! George Sr. is the youngest of 4 and his siblings are all a bit older as his mother had him at the age of 48. Unfortunately,both of his parents passed away from cancer so he is closest with his brother Stephen and niece Stephanie (who is very close in age to George). We both love our families very much and we love spending time with our families over the holidays and for vacations. Shannon’s family also has a beach home and many fun family vacations take place here. Everyone is SO excited to meet the newest family member!

What Led Us To Adoption

As mentioned above building a family came up the first night we met! Shannon had wanted children so much that she went through the IVF process with an anonymous sperm donor before she met George. While she did not get pregnant, George loved that she had been willing to go through this on her own. We went through IVF together once married but the process was again unsuccessful. While we have been unsuccessful in our attempts to have another child on our own, our infertility has brought us closer as a couple and has just reiterated the fact that we still want to grow our family. We are at a stage in our lives where we are ready and excited to give our love, support, energy and attention to another child.

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!
