Find a Family - Waiting to Adopt

Christin John and Justin

Christin John and Justin

We are Christin and John, a fun-loving couple, who cherish our family and faith above all things. We grew up in Southern California, where we now live, and have a special place in our hearts for Chicago where we travel to often. We admire you for your courage and sacrifice, and we cannot express how much we respect you for considering adoption. We are excited to introduce ourselves!

Imelda and Jared

Imelda and Jared

We are a biracial couple in our mid 30’s. Imelda is Mexican American and fluent in Spanish and English. She has a Masters degree in counseling and works with community college students. Jared has a Master’s degree in Business and works as a business analyst. With us, your child will grow up in a bi-cultural, bilingual home, but will always know where they came from. He or she will learn about the world as they travel with us.

Stephan

Stephan

I have wanted to be a mother for as long as I can remember. After much thought I decided to start my family as a single parent. This journey has taught me that you do not have to give birth to a child to be a parent. I may be single, but I will not be raising your child alone. The entire family is extremely excited about the opportunity to have a new child to love and spoil.

James and Marty

We want to raise children that make this world a better place. We'll teach our children to be compassionate, kind and empathetic.

You will always have a place in our family and in your child’s heart.

Annie and Joe

Annie and Joe

We are a very open-minded couple that tries not to take life too seriously. Principles and ethics are very important to us. Loyalty, empathy, and equality are the foundation to how we live and conduct ourselves. Joking and laughing are our favorite hobbies. We really want to have a family, and it would be such a gift to have a child to love and cherish as our own. We could never truly put ourselves in your shoes but one thing we can understand is how strong you are and how much you must love your child by choosing adoption. So, thank you for being you.

Skye and RJ

Thank you for reading about us! We are RJ, Jeff and Thea (age 4). Even before we got married in 2015, we both knew we wanted to become dads and start a family and adoption was always our plan. RJ’s mom, Dorothy, was very influential in our decision to pursue an open adoption. She placed a child for adoption. This personal adoption experience has made us strong believers in open adoption. We have so much to offer as parents and would be honored to have the opportunity to show you. Thank you again for considering us. We look forward to meeting you!

My dream is to build my family through adoption.

Robert works for a tech company and Kolby is a Science teacher. We were both born in Louisiana, and are now living in Chicago and enjoying all the city has to offer. The decision to make an adoption plan is not one that anyone would take lightly so we want to thank you for your bravery and vulnerability. Without you, our family would remain a dream, so we honor you for possibly making our dream of fatherhood come true.

As an expectant mother, we are sure you are reading this and thinking about making one of the most important decisions of your life. You are probably reading this because you are looking for open, loving and trustworthy adoptive parents to raise your baby. We are writing this to you because we want to give your baby a home to grow up in surrounded by people that love him or her. In 2018, we adopted a beautiful baby boy named Dominic. He is the inspiration that keeps us going and adoption is something we openly embrace and wish to pursue again.

A very warm hello to you. It is both delightful and unbelievable that I am writing this letter. I am honored that you have taken the time to view my profile. My name is Ekpedeme (pronounced ek-ped-uh-may). My nickname is Pamay (pronounced Pam – Ay). It means “who but God could have given me such a beautiful child.” My parents thought a lot about what to name me; I have thought a lot about how much I would like to be a mother. I would like to know your dreams and your fears, and to answer your questions about me. I am patiently waiting to hear from you– and knowing that whatever is meant to be, will be.

Gia and Joe

Adoption has always been in our plan; we knew that having a child ourselves was going to be challenging, and our treatment options were limited. We're a young couple (33 and 35) who have known each other for 11 years. We share similar values and our personalities fit together perfectly. We promise to give your child a safe and stable life and our unconditional love. We can't wait to meet you.

We have 3 biological children, and now that they are adults, we welcome foster children into our home! We are committed to providing a safe, secure environment for your child to be welcomed into. We promise to love, nurture, and give your child everything that he/she could possibly ever need or want in life.

Words cannot describe how grateful we are that you are taking the time to read our story. As you read through our profile, we want to let you know that we intend to raise your child so that they always know their family was chosen out of love by their birth mom.
