We know you are making a brave and important decision. We believe that all children should be nurtured and raised in a loving home, which we know we can provide. Our journey has been bittersweet, beginning with infertility issues and failed IVF attempts. Although this time was difficult, it also deepened our relationship to God and to each other.
We have always been open to adoption to grow our family. We have two adopted daughters, Madeleine and Evangeline. Maddie was adopted from China in 2011 and Evie domestically in 2013. Both girls are well cared and provided for. We believe that learning and play are important in a child’s development, so we encourage both girls to try new things and have fun.
Angel and I met in college. While I was attracted to her physically, what was more important was her care and loyalty for her friends. Angel is a wonderful wife and mother. She does not hesitate to get on the ground to play with children and her decisions are always for what’s best for our children. She sees more potential in people than they see in themselves. Angel enjoys reading, gardening, and trying new recipes. She also loves to take our daughters on playdates, and to bike on our neighborhood trail. We bought a two seat bike trailer so that Maddie and Evie can take part in our family activities. One of our shared passions is to travel. We have been blessed to visit almost all of the continents (Antartica doesn’t count!). We hope to share this joy with our children when they are old enough!
Chang is easy going and has a great sense of humor. He is an amazing husband who loves me unconditionally and encourages me to be a better person. Chang is patient, kind, generous and works tirelessly to help his family and friends. He is an excellent provider. As a physician, he is respected and is often sought for his expertise. I admire Chang for having healthy boundaries between work and home. Even after a long day, he comes home ready to help and is a wonderful dad to our girls, playing with them and teaching them new things. Chang loves disc golf and mountain biking, and would love the opportunity to share his hobbies with a future son. He appreciates good music, and although he doesn’t use it as often as he should, Chang has a great singing voice (especially when he is singing Elvis songs!).
As of October 2015, we are excited to be updating an old house with character and charm to modern spacious amenities. This house has a front porch in a quiet neighborhood and friends the age of our kids. Our neighborhood has easy access to a paved city trail with nearby parks. We look forward to being able to ride with our children on the paved trails. Our home is typically a meeting place for our friends and family, where we entertain and serve good food and conversation. Our friends and family are loving and supportive, providing meals and moral support throughout our adoption process.
Thank you for looking at our profile. I hope we have shown how much your child will be loved and cared for in our home. He will be given every opportunity to do well in life. It may not be easy, but we sincerely hope and pray that you will have peace knowing that your child will be cared for by the right family, no matter who you choose.
Chang and Angel
