Although we haven’t met yet, we know you are extraordinary and amazing. Considering adoption for your baby says so much about your kind and beautiful heart. It takes a tremendous amount of courage to trust in someone else’s ability and commitment to nurture the life, dreams, and potential of your child. We are inspired and humbled by your selflessness, and would never take your trust, faith, and hope for granted.
We will do our best to honor your trust and faith in us as parents and caregivers. We promise to find adventure and miracles in everyday life and will raise your child to know the power of a hug and the importance of being kind. We will always encourage them to color outside the lines, dream big, never be afraid to fail, forgive or love and ALWAYS follow their heart.
We are so ready and so excited for this awesome privilege and responsibility and know it will be even more amazing than we ever imagined or planned for. Most of all, we want you to know if you choose us to parent your baby, we will love and care for them to the moon and back, forever and always, no matter what! Thank you for opening your heart to us and listening to our story.
Stacey and I met 12 years ago online and it’s been an amazing adventure. We are best friends, who have each other's back and are each other's rock. We are a "modern" family, who celebrates diversity and the things that make us unique. We are grounded by traditions and our values of family, faith, hope, and love. We believe every single moment is a gift and a miracle. We do our best each day to live by these simple rules: love big, have gratitude, play full-out, be fair, humble, kind and generous, give it your best shot, and never give up.
We both work in the medical field; it inspires us and we love helping others. Since we have been blessed with so much, we like to also give back by helping at a local soup kitchen whenever we are able. When not working or volunteering, you will find us with our friends, family, neighbors, or coworkers, all of whom provide an incredible support system. We also love to travel and enjoy new experiences, such as spending the night in a treehouse, renting a jeep to explore ancient civilizations, taking a Thai cooking class, or going to a drive-in movie. We are both very active and spend any additional free time going to the beach, boating, bike riding, kayaking, or just hanging out on the back patio by the fire.
Our Home & Pets
We just finished building and moving into our new home. We designed the house knowing we would be expanding our family through adoption. The development we live in is a culturally diverse neighborhood with kids and adults of all ages. Everyone is super friendly and enjoys hanging out and getting together for neighborhood BBQs. They will be putting in a community pool soon as well and we can’t wait! We really do watch out for one another, help each other when needed and always enjoy catching up when we are out walking the dogs or working in the yard.
Speaking of dogs, we have 2 totally awesome pups, Kobie and Cooper. They’re both very cool dogs. We are convinced that Kobie, the oldest, is part human. He is super chill, loves to hang out, and we secretly think he knows how to use the remote when we are not home. Cooper, the youngest, is a sweetheart. He is loyal, always on the lookout, and has a hilarious sense of humor. They both love to watch movies, eat popcorn, and lay their heads next to yours on the pillow. They adore people and can turn a bad day into the best day ever with their unconditional love.
Our Extended Family
Stacey and I come from very close families who love being together and are very involved in our lives. My parents, 2 brothers and their families live 10 minutes from us. My mom was from a family of 5, so there are lots of aunts, uncles, and cousins. Stacey also comes from a big and close family; her mom, dad, sister, nieces, nephew, aunts and uncles live 2 hours from us. As you can imagine, there is always a reason to get together, whether it's for a soccer game, dance recital, family chili cook-off, birthday party, holiday, or just hanging out in the backyard.
One of the things we are so proud of is how much both of our families love to spend time together. This summer, we are all going on vacation together; we rented a lake house and can't wait to swim, canoe, fish, BBQ and hang out! Our motto is "we may not have it all together, but together we have it all!” We also have very big “family”; friends who are just as important and special as our family, some whom we have known most of our lives.
What Led Us To Adoption
In a world of uncertainty, we know one thing for certain: we have both ALWAYS wanted children. Adoption is already very much a part of our lives; our family and friends have adopted children from the U.S., Nicaragua, and Guatemala and are amazing role models and advocates for adoption. For 3 years, we tried to expand our family with the help of fertility doctors. We were unsuccessful and initially disappointed we could not physically have children, but ultimately feel adoption is in our hearts. We’ve never lost sight of our hope and dream of one day being parents, and look forward to meeting the kind, generous and loving angel who helps us make our dream of growing our family come true.

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
