First, we would like to say thank you for considering us as a potential family for your child. We can only imagine how difficult this decision is for you and understand it’s not an easy one to make. We know you are considering all of your options and we are sincerely thankful just to be one of those options. It takes a strong woman to make this kind of sacrifice and we are honored that you would even consider giving us the greatest gift anyone can give, a child.
If you chose us, we promise that your baby will come to learn just how much you loved, cared and sacrificed to insure he/she could have the best life possible. Again, thank you for this wonderful gift and we wish you all the best.
Vera and I recently celebrated our 5th Anniversary. Our relationship initially started out as a great friendship that was built on honesty and respect. Eventually, that friendship grew into something more and after 3 years of dating, we were finally married. We are both retired Military Veterans and currently living in Florida.
Vera is a Program Manager for a Logistics company in charge of Department of Defense contracts, and I am a Chef working at a beautiful hotel. I, of course, like to cook. I like to shoot skeet (clay pigeons) when I get the chance, play volleyball, tennis, golf, hiking, and go to UFC events when I get the opportunity to do so. Vera likes to go to the movies, enjoy my cooking, travel, learning about different cultures, and attending UFC events as well.
Our Home & Pets
In 2015 we had our house built and moved in at the end of the year. We live in an up and coming neighborhood where homes are being built all the time. It’s a family friendly neighborhood, with a dog park, walking trails, community pool, fitness center and an outdoor amphitheater. The community holds events about every week and on holidays doing things such as Easter egg hunts, movie in the park, Meet Santa, etc.… We are enjoying our neighborhood along with our three dogs. They like to go on walks around the neighborhood, lay outside in the courtyard, and make new friends at the dog park. Sam is a Maltese and Toby and Abby are both Shi-Tzu’s.
Our Extended Family
Vera has 2 brothers and 1 sister. She is the second oldest and the oldest girl. Her mother lives in California and father lives on Guam. She has 7 nieces and 7 nephews and some of her family still living on Guam. Vera’s older brother and 6 of his children live 3 miles away and we often like to get together for family fun days. My entire family lives in various cities Pennsylvania, where I am from. I have one brother who is married and they have one son. We visit as often as we can and talk on a regular basis.

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
