dear expectant mother
First, let us say we truly thank you for taking the time to consider us as the parents of your child. We understand this decision is not an easy one, and we are grateful for people like you who give us a chance to love a child as our own. Our situation is unique in that Tana’s disease is hereditary and having a biological child comes with risks we are not willing to take. We have so much love and compassion to give, and your openness to adoption means a chance for growth and happiness for us as a family with your baby.
We are financially, physically, and emotionally ready to live our lives with a child and teach a boy or girl about the world. You can know that love, compassion, and understanding are the most important values we hold, and passing those values on will be our priority. You can envision us doing this by traveling the world and learning about other people, cultures, foods, and traditions. You can envision your child wrestling around on the ground with our little dog, Duke, and us watching over them to make sure nobody gets too rough. You can envision us sitting at the table working on puzzles while listening to music after all the homework is done. We will encourage, inspire, and support them to be the person they want to be. An athlete, a bookworm, a musician, an animal lover, or all of the above, we will nurture their joys and passions so they can achieve all of their goals.
During the COVID pandemic, we got married in our home on a video call as our friends and families watched. Not even a worldwide pandemic was going to make us miss our big day. That is the type of spirit we bring to most things. We are both college graduates and sports fans, and we do our best to watch our beloved Buckeyes when they are on television. We enjoy playing word games and doing puzzles while relaxing at home. We also like to go out to professional soccer games and gallery hops in the arts district. Tana works as an IT project manager for a national consulting firm. Dave is a mortgage underwriter at a large bank. We both work very hard and are driven to continue succeeding in our careers, but we enjoy taking time to ourselves and doing the things we love.
Our Home & Pets
We have a brand new four-story condo in a growing urban neighborhood. Our home has three bedrooms, with one used as an office and exercise room. Our third floor living room has indoor and outdoor spaces for entertaining friends and family, and we have a finished fourth-story rooftop that overlooks the downtown skyline. We love to sit outside and listen to music and watch movies under the stars. We definitely embrace a more urban lifestyle. We are close to lots of city parks where we love to take our dog, Duke. Duke is our extremely loving Yorkie-poodle with an endless amount of energy. We can’t wait to take the baby around with us to the local events like pop-up shops, concerts, and shows.
Our Extended Family
Our parents are also in Ohio, so we are only a one- to two-hour car ride from both families, who are excited for this adventure. We like to vary our holiday traveling so we get to see everyone as much as possible, but we always make the Christmas party at Tana’s family’s house, where everyone brings the kids and catches up on life over the past year. Dave’s brother is on the East Coast, while Tana’s siblings are on the West Coast, so traveling to see them is another way for us to experience the country together.
Dave’s family enjoys playing and watching tennis, and we envision continuing to enjoy it together by going to the major professional tournament in the area. Another tradition we have is coming together with our friends and neighbors for big Ohio State football games in the fall. Everyone is over the moon with excitement and ready to spoil the next member of the family.
What Led Us To Adoption
We knew when we met that adoption was going to be the way we grew our family. Tana has a rare hereditary disease she does not want to pass on. Both of us can’t wait to become parents and feel blessed that we can provide all the necessities for nurturing and development. We have spoken to numerous adoptive parents and children and found out what types of situations have flourished and which situations were difficult. We have learned the most important thing is to love and listen to our child. This means not only supporting them financially but listening to them as they begin to experience life and ask questions. We know this is the right path for us to grow our family, and we are so excited for this journey.

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
