dear expectant mother
Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. You are incredibly brave for considering an adoption plan and possibly blessing us with this incredible gift of parenthood. We promise to honor you and be fully present both physically and emotionally to your baby. Our home is full of warmth and love with a large extended family and community of friends. Tiffany will ensure your child will be creative and will teach them foundational skills in how to cook and care for themselves. Steve is such a supportive role model and will instill the skills and work ethic to be successful.
We promise to be there for every new skill, from learning to eat with a fork to riding a bike and all the risks that come with learning, from a skinned knee to their first heartbreak. This life is full of tough choices, not all you can be prepared for, but we hope to instill a peace in your child that involves building a strong heart and mind to give them the foundation in life to persevere through its many challenges.
We will always be there for support and advice and will ensure they know we will always have their back no matter what. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. This journey will help us learn and see everything as brand new through the eyes of a child, and we are so excited for it. We would be honored to connect with you.

She has worked many years as a nanny and currently works from home developing curriculum for an online education company. She loves to be creative with art and cooking and is an aunt to seven children. Together we seek adventure and to explore the world. We are an extremely optimistic pair who tries to find the good in all situations. In our free time, we like to hike, kayak, and volunteer at the local food bank.
Our Home & Pets
We have a four-bedroom, two-story home with a spacious floor plan and vaulted ceilings. The screened-in back porch and fenced yard give us privacy and plenty of room to play outdoors. Our kitchen island is perfect for getting little hands experimenting with cooking. Our friendly neighbors are fun to plan BBQs and go on dog walks with. A kayak launch and neighborhood pool are within walking distance of our home. We have three dogs, who are part athlete and part couch potato. They are nanny dogs who love children and give the best snuggles.
Our Extended Family
Steve’s parents are so excited to be first-time grandparents. They live close by and can’t wait to be a support and enjoy watching their grandbabies grow. They love to celebrate all the holidays. They bring so much joy with their creativity. On Easter they love to hide eggs, and on Halloween they light up the neighborhood with spooky decorations.
Tiffany’s family is so excited to welcome a new baby. Her mom and sisters have decades of child development knowledge and all plan to visit often. Tiffany’s family honors her Portuguese heritage by participating in San Diego’s oldest heritage event. Every May, the family travels to San Diego to participate in this event that has spanned four generations. Thanksgiving is also important to Tiffany, which is where she gained her passion for cooking. It is tradition that every child participates in making a special dish.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have been happily married for over eight years. In that time, we have always talked about how we long to be parents. Unfortunately, we have learned we are unable to conceive due to a rare genetic disorder. Adoption was a natural choice as we both come from families that have grown through adoption. We have such a wonderful and accepting support system that understands love is what bonds a family together. We are both highly active and healthy individuals who love to explore, travel, learn, and grow as a couple. We are ready to be parents and want nothing more than to share our love of travel and the love we have for each other with a newborn baby.

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
