dear expectant mother
We want to thank you for taking the time to read our profile, and we hope you will consider us when making this difficult decision. Our names are Stephen and Becky, and although we don’t know you yet, we are already excited to meet you!
We would like you to know we admire your consideration of adoption and are forever grateful for your selflessness and courage. We can’t imagine the struggles you are going through, but we want you to know we have the utmost respect for you and what an amazing gift you are considering entrusting with us.
If you decide to choose us as the adoptive parents for your baby, please know your child will be raised in a home filled with love, happiness, and lots of laughter. We look forward to sharing the milestones of your child’s life with you, if you choose, such as crawling, first words, and starting school. We will give your baby our unconditional love, attention, support, and protection to the best of our abilities. We hope you will give us the opportunity to make our dreams come true and give your child the best life we possibly can. We are extremely hopeful and incredibly excited about welcoming a beautiful new baby into our lives.
We met online in 2006 and hit it off immediately. In 2007 we were engaged, and we were married in 2010. Stephen works in the IT department of a natural products company. He loves everything technology related and is a diehard baseball fan. Becky works part-time for a natural health non-profit organization in the same building as Stephen, and she enjoys doing crafts, home decorating, and cooking. On the weekends, we enjoy day trips to explore new places and spending time with family around bonfires, barbecuing, and swimming in Becky’s parents’ pool. We have a son, Andrew, from Becky’s previous marriage, who is now 20 years old and has moved away to attend college. Becky has always dreamed of having more children, and the time Stephen spent helping to raise Andrew only reinforced his lifelong desire to have another child.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a three-bedroom, two-bathroom home, which we have enjoyed renovating over the past seven years. We have a large, fenced-in backyard with a big vegetable garden and many flower beds. Louie is our eight-year-old pug, a lovable and silly dog who keeps us laughing. He is a favorite of all the kids in our neighborhood and loves to go on his nightly walks. The local elementary school is directly beyond our backyard, which has a playground and sports fields. We live in a diverse, family-filled city that has many bike paths along the river, a great public library, and quite a few city-wide events throughout the year. There is also a highly rated school district, and a very active park district that conducts many events throughout the year. In addition, we live in a neighborhood that enjoys hosting themed events, such as the annual chili cook-off and Fried Food Fest.
Our Extended Family
We live in Becky’s hometown, and her parents live just down the street from us. Her younger sister and her family, plus both of her grandmothers, also live within walking distance. We enjoy getting together almost weekly with Becky’s family for Sunday dinners, cook-outs, celebrating birthdays, and having game nights. We also enjoy spending time at her parents’ cabin in Wisconsin, where we go out on the boat, fish, hike, and camp.
Stephen’s parents live about four hours away, along with his older sister and her family. We make trips to visit Stephen’s family three to four times a year, including during the holidays. His family also enjoys coming to visit us. We have many nieces and nephews that we are very close to and enjoy spending time with. Our family has been very supportive and are excited to see our family grow through adoption.
What Led Us To Adoption
Family has always been very important to us, and we always knew we wanted to raise a child together. After years of trying and having infertility issues, we were told we would not be able to have a biological child. We always wanted to raise a large family, so at that point, we immediately knew adoption would be a wonderful opportunity for us. Becky worked for many years as a preschool teacher and witnessed the joy that adoption brought to many families. Adopting a child will answer our prayers and make our dreams of sharing our lives with a child 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
