Engelmann Family Adoption

Tim and I (Angelica) met during my freshman year of high school and were best friends for many years before we dated and married. I think that the solid friendship that we built in our early years has remained the firm foundation for our marriage, through twelve years of growth and change. We also share a deep and abiding love for God and live our life and raise our children based on Jesus’s teaching of love, joy, peace, forgiveness, and trust. We are blessed to be parents to three wonderful children, ranging in age from 7 to 1 year old. Our youngest, Elly, joined our family through adoption a little over a year ago and she is a ray of sunshine in our life! Family is very important to us and we have worked hard to make “home” a place of warmth and love- I stay home and care for the kids, including homeschooling our two oldest and Tim runs his financial advising business from home as well. So the house can get a bit busy sometimes with all of us bustling around, not to mention throwing two dogs, a cat, a fish and a turtle into the mix! It’s a crazy life sometimes, but it’s ours!

Unfortunately, our families live in other states and we don’t get to see them as often as we like, but we make sure to visit regularly and they come and visit us as well. We both have large extended families so there are plenty of doting relatives who love to spoil the kiddos- they are all so excited at the prospect of a new little baby to cuddle! In lieu of local family, we have been blessed with a great community of neighbors and friends.

We are excited and a bit anxious to be starting this adoption journey. We really enjoy and take seriously the responsibility of parenting. Our two oldest children are a mere 19 months apart and have a special closeness in their relationship; we are hoping that Elly and our newest family member will share a similar bond. We have no expectations in regards to gender or ethnicity and will embrace any child that God brings us with unconditional love and acceptance.
