dear expectant mother
First and foremost, we would like you to know how much we respect and admire you. The difficult decision you are making is one we cannot fathom. We trust that whatever decision you make will be the right one for you and your baby. Mothers like you provide families like ours the greatest gift, and we are and will be forever grateful. Your consideration to entrust us with the growth and nurturance of your child is a blessing. This selfless act would give us a lifetime of joy, happiness, and love. If given that gift, we will dedicate our lives to reflecting this love and joy to your baby. We know the road ahead of you is difficult, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your loving act; you will forever be in our hearts and a part of our family.
We will embrace your child with love that knows no limits, compassion that never faults, and laughter that grows louder with each laugh. We will do everything in our power to ensure your child is loved, protected, and encouraged. We will support and encourage your child's passions and dreams to ensure they reach their goals. Finally, we have always found ways to forge community wherever we go. Through our careers, church, friends, and neighborhood, we have experienced all the love a family can offer and are excited to welcome your child into our family.
We are Tim and Nick, and we could not be more excited to continue our journey together by starting our next and greatest chapter: becoming parents. We met just over five years ago and became fast friends. After a year of friendship, we knew this was something bigger. We married in July 2020 in an intimate backyard wedding. It was the perfect day. Tim works as an interior designer for a high-end furniture retailer and owns his own design company. Nick is currently the office manager of the same retailer while he completes graduate school for special education. We enjoy the arts—especially Broadway productions—and spending time with our family in either the Michigan lake house or Florida condo. Early on, we bonded over our love of food and still cook together nightly. Gathering with loved ones around the table is one of our favorite pastimes.
Our Home & Pets
We fell in love with our community on our first visit when we saw children and families out and about enjoying the sunshine. We live in a newly renovated two-bedroom, one-and-a-half bath townhome in an area of Illinois known for the school districts. We prioritized living near loved ones, with both sets of parents and other family members less than fifteen minutes away. This home was perfect for us. Our community even offers a lifeguarded pool for summertime splash contests. Sophie, our 13-year-old Boston terrier, will tell you this is her home and her humans keep it up. She is a very mellow pup who loves a good belly rub, nap, walk, and visits from her human cousins.
Our Extended Family
Our families are the root of everything that is important to us. Tim comes from a very close family with one younger brother and parents who just celebrated 42 years of marriage. Living next door to Tim’s aunt and uncle, his parents have continued to instill family traditions as they host large family dinners every Sunday. Tim’s mother is one of three siblings. In the last two years, five new babies have been added to our family. Tim’s father, a highly respected educator, is a leader among his family. As one of five, he continues to bring the family together through lots of love and laughter.
Nick also comes from a very close-knit family. His sister, who is only 20 months older, is his best friend, and they are in constant communication. His parents, who recently celebrated 29 years of marriage, host annual holiday gatherings, bringing the family together. Additionally, his grandparents still have a home in Michigan, and his parents recently purchased a Florida beach house. Nick has fond memories of picking blueberries and peaches alongside his grandparents in Michigan and looks forward to passing that tradition along to his own children.
What Led Us To Adoption
For us, becoming parents has always been the plan. From the start, we connected over our shared hope for a family. Adoption creates a path for us to realize our goal of nurturing a child. As adoptive parents, we are eager to welcome a child into the community that has grown and shaped us. We have both experienced the blessing of having a tight-knit, extended family nearby. We know our support system is ready to care for our growing family. Our family has already welcomed children, which has given us the opportunity to love and care for nieces and nephews. Surrounded by this much love and joy, we knew it was time to begin a family of our own.

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
