dear expectant mother
Thank you for considering us for this incredible gift of parenthood. If you choose us, we will honor this gift with a promise to be fully present both physically and emotionally to see everything as brand new through the eyes of a child, from the feeling of grass on their toes to the light as it dances on the wall. We will be there for every new skill, from learning to eat with a fork to riding a bike. We will be there for all the risks that come with learning, from the skinned knee to their first heartbreak.
This life can be full of scary challenges that are very much out of our control, but we hope to instill a peace in our child that involves building a strong heart and mind to give them the foundation in life to overcome all of its many challenges. It is the most natural thing to see Tiffany play and interact with children of all ages. She will ensure our child will be creative and teach them foundational skills in how to cook and care for themselves. Steve will be a great dad because he is supportive and will instill the skills and work ethic required to be successful.
We will be there for support and advice and will ensure they know we will always have their back no matter what. Together we will help guide their discussions through life. Please know you would be helping build a wonderful family, and we would be eternally grateful to you.
Steve is a U.S. Navy sailor who is passionate and driven. He is an educator and mentor to many of his friends and loves to work as part of a team. In his spare time, he works to fix and build things and considers himself a lifelong student. Tiffany works for an online education company with experience in early childhood development. She enjoys the benefits of working from home and has access to a family-friendly work environment. She loves to be creative with art and cooking and is an aunt to seven kiddos. 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 volunteer at the church, helping with the food bank. We hope to impart the importance of volunteerism and supporting the community.
Our Home & Pets
We have a four-bedroom, two-story home with a spacious floor plan and vaulted ceilings, on a half acre lot. The screened-in back porch and fenced yard give us privacy and plenty of room to play outdoors. 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 two dogs, who are part athlete and part couch potato. They are nanny dogs who love to snuggle and protect any child they meet.
Our Extended Family
Steve’s parents are so excited to be first-time grandparents. They currently live on the opposite coast but have plans to move nearby to be a support and to enjoy their grand-babies milestones. They love to celebrate all the holidays. On Easter they hide eggs for the dog to find treats, and on Halloween they light up the neighborhood with spooky delights. Every holiday they send us cards and a box of treats for the dogs.
Tiffany’s parents also live on the opposite coast, but her mom, with decades of child development knowledge, plans to visit often. Tiffany’s family honors her Portuguese heritage by participating in San Diego’s oldest heritage event every May, which is over a hundred years old and has spanned four generations of her family. Thanksgiving is very important to her family as well, and this is where Tiffany gained her passion for cooking.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have been happily married for over seven years, and in that time, we have tried to have children and build our family. It turns out Steve has a somewhat rare genetic disorder, making fathering children not possible. It is because of our infertility we have chosen adoption as our way of growing our family. We are both otherwise very active and healthy individuals who love to explore, travel, learn, and grow as a couple. We want nothing more than to be parents.

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
