We are Angela and Michael. Our hearts are full of love and excitement for the what the future holds. We hope this book conveys a bit of our personalities, our home, and our family. We are excited about the opportunity to become parents for the first time. Our lives are full, but we believe adding to our family will bring new joys and an ability to share our blessings. While this time will be emotional for all of us, we are confident the outcome will be wonderful. We admire your decision to consider an adoption plan and we are grateful that you might consider us to join you in the journey.
We have faith in our ability to provide a child an incredible life filled with love and opportunity. They will be surrounded by family and friends.

We want our child to understand their birth mother’s great love for them, and to admire her strength and selflessness.
Please read our story, we hope we are able to share a window into our love-filled lives, which we are ready to share with a child. While we cannot imagine your emotions today, we do know that what we share with you an overwhelming desire to give your child a home full of love and a life full of opportunities.
How did we meet?
We met nearly twenty years ago back and have been married for nearly ten. We were working closely as work colleagues when we first started dating and spent almost every day together during those early months. Later Michael relocated and we spent many months hundreds of miles apart, which was difficult for us, but would eventually prove our commitment to each other. We lived in the same city for six months, when Michael invited Angela on a work trip to Hawai’i - who says “no” to that offer! On the final night of the trip, taking a romantic walk along the beach, Michael dropped to one knee and proposed. We were beyond excited to start the next chapter of our adventure. We had a short six month engagement, and then plunged into marriage in our home state - Michigan.
Joy of exploration.
We love exploring. Whether we are exploring hiking trails in the National Parks or the new coffee shop near our home we are always looking for something new to try. We also love getting to sporting events - with baseball, college football and basketball being at the top of the list. Michael because he loves sports and Angela because she loves exploring stadium food (mainly hot dogs and snacks). We have been fortunate to take our explorations across the country and to some exciting spots around the globe including France, Germany, Italy, Costa Rica, Jordan and Israel. We love the idea of bringing our joy of exploration to our child.
