About Us

We make each other laugh, and we both believe life should not be complicated. We absolutely enjoy life to the fullest. Angie is a work-from-home psychologist, and she is very ambitious, caring. She loves children. Because she works from home, she can easily take care of the family and household needs. Darrin works in the RV industry and is a hard worker, is a great family leader, and adores kids. Several months after dating, Darrin introduced Angie to his daughter, Daelyn, and they quickly created an unbreakable bond. Darrin jokingly calls them “peas and carrots.” Daelyn is one of the most caring, selfless, God-loving divas you could ever meet. Our dedication to each other, our marriage, Daelyn, and God keeps our family strong. We love to go to church, fish, ride our four-wheeler, swim, dance, watch movies, and play sports.

Our Home & Pets

We are beyond ecstatic for the baby to enjoy his or her own bedroom in our three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom home. We live on a gravel road with little traffic, which is perfect for the baby’s safety. Our dog, Yadi, is a one-year-old loving cavapoo who makes us giggle. We live in a highly sought-out private community with several lakes and a golf course overlooking a beautiful river valley. Our community is blessed with our own police department, which keeps the crime rate incredibly low. We also have our own fire department, homeowner’s association, animal control, several playgrounds, community pool, country club, restaurants, and shops. We live in a marvelous school district and have an abundance of children in the community.

Our Extended Family

Darrin’s parents have been married for 53 years. He has one sister, a sister-in law, two nieces, and three great-nephews. Angie’s parents have been married for 35 years. She has one brother, one sister, one sister-in-law, four nephews, and four nieces. Our families are thrilled to welcome another baby into their lives. Our families were both built on finding the value in hard work and not giving up when things get tough. We both look up to our families because they are strong, loving, and committed people.

We look forward to our family traditions every year. We can always expect a big Italian Christmas Eve party with Angie’s side of the family. The best part is that Santa stops by every year to pass out presents to the kids! On Christmas Day, we open presents at our house then we go visit Darrin’s parents and make candy. Darrin’s mother always makes the best carrot cake! Throughout the rest of the year, we spend weekends with our extended families for birthdays, holidays, and just because days. In the summer, everyone visits the family lake house for boating, fishing, BBQ, bonfires, and eating the best slushies ever.

What Led Us To Adoption

Adoption has always been something we knew would be a part of our lives. Those who know us are amazed at how easily we connect with children. In November 2019 Angie found out her chance of having children was not impossible but IVF treatments would be necessary. Instead of going through the physical and emotional pain that comes along with IVF, we took this news as a sign from God that now is the time to adopt. Adoption was not a second choice for us but instead just a matter of timing. Of course we included Darrin’s daughter Daeyln in this decision as her well-being and opinion are so important to our family. Daelyn loves acting like a big sister to her cousins, and she cannot wait to have a little brother or sister of her own!
