We cannot wait to share life’s joys and the goofiest little moments with you as this child grows up, just as we would with our family members. We are overjoyed at the idea of becoming parents, and if you do choose us, we would be honored to go along this journey to support you.
Zoe and Steven
We met when Zoe was a junior in college through a dating app. Shortly after starting to talk online, Zoe took a summer job out of state, so we had to take it slow and weren’t able to meet in person for four months. After two years of dating, we got married and have been happily married since July of 2019! Zoe went to school to be a teacher and now is a housewife with the goal of being a stay-at-home mom. Steven works as a civil engineer, designing site infrastructure around the country. Our favorite hobbies include board games, going to movies, and working on puzzles. We really enjoy being able to work together to solve puzzles and play cooperative games.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a small, quiet neighborhood within walking distance of our local elementary school and across the street from a beautiful park. We live in a three-bedroom ranch-style house. Our house also contains a small collection of furry friends. We have two orange cats, Goose and Coulson. We also have a large cage in our living room that contains our three pet rats: Eddie, Cooper, and Archie. They were supposed to be class pets when Zoe was teaching, but we got too attached to having them at home while hand training them to take them to school! We also have a small fish tank with various brightly colored freshwater fish we love to watch swim around
Our Extended Family
Steven's side of the family contains his mom and his stepdad. Zoe’s side has her mom, her dad, and her sister and her family. Zoe’s sister got married the October before us, and when she did, she brought four wonderful children into our lives. Their children have brought immeasurable joy to every family gathering since.
We both love to spend time with our families, rarely going more than a couple weeks without seeing them. It gets a bit hectic around the holidays as it is important to us that we spend ample time with both sides of the family. We were even fortunate enough to be able to host both sides of our family for Thanksgiving this year, after which we went to the Christmas light display at our local zoo.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have been hoping to start a family since before we got married but have not been able to have a biological child. Zoe has several close friends who either were adopted or have a sibling who was adopted, and they have all had wonderful, loving experiences. Adoption is something we increasingly considered as time went on. Being able to make the decision to move forward with choosing adoption as a way to expand our family feels like the right choice for us, and we are excited to move forward.

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
