dear expectant mother

We first want to thank you for your courage and love you are expressing by considering us to become adoptive parents. While we cannot imagine how difficult this decision must be, we want you to know we will be there to support you all of the way. Mothers who choose adoption are showing their baby a wonderful form of love when choosing a loving couple for her child. It is not something to be judged but rather something to respect. We want you to know we see that, and it will be an integral part of how we raise our future child.

There are many unknowns involved in pregnancy that can cause anxiety. We want you to know that by choosing us, you have not only our support but the support of the hundreds of people supporting us. We have prayed for you, we have prepared for you, and we want to earn your trust as we go through this process together. We will ensure you are respected, heard, and supported through this entire process. We hope this will ease your heart.

If you choose us, we promise to always love and support your child. We promise to teach them about right and wrong and unconditional love. We promise to be there in the good and bad, and we promise we will do everything to make them happy. We look forward to getting to know you and welcoming you into our lives.

We have prayed for you, we have prepared for you, and we want to earn your trust as we go through this process together.

About Us

We have been together for nine years. Zac is a fun, loving, intelligent person with a goofy sense of humor. He is known for having the “dad joke” to tell at a moment’s notice. Zac enjoys finding humor in life, especially with having a career in science, which can be serious. Zac is a molecular biologist and loves discussing anything science related. Travis is an outgoing, loving, compassionate person who puts other’s needs before his own. Travis used to be an elementary music teacher, but his true calling is nursing. Travis is a Registered Nurse who works in critical care, and being level headed is one of his best traits. We enjoy spending time with our friends. We travel often to see family as well. We are grateful for each other and what we have accomplished together.

Our Home & Pets

We live in a suburb community in Arizona. We live near the base of a mountain just 20 minutes from the city. We have a beautiful three-bedroom home with a large, fenced-in backyard with a pool, located in a quiet neighborhood. Nearby is the community park. We have wonderful neighborhood friends, whom we spend most of our time with. We have so many fun things to do, including hiking, zoos, aquariums, and more! We live close to several great schools. We have three dogs: Charlie, Louie, and Margie. They love to play outside. Charlie loves to sunbathe in the warm sun, while Louie and Margie are always watching the pool when kids and adults are swimming to make sure everyone is safe. They definitely can’t wait to have a brother or sister to look after!

Our Extended Family

Family is the most important part of our lives. We come from two wonderful families. We used to live near Travis’s family and spent many family gatherings together. Recently, we moved to Arizona, where we have a wonderful group of friends whom we consider to be family.
For many years, Zac’s mom has lived with us. She is a wonderful grandma. Zac has one older sister along with a niece and nephew we visit when we are back home.

Travis is the youngest of three siblings. He has one brother and one sister, who are both married with children. He has three nephews and three nieces he loves to spend time with. Travis’s family is very close-knit, spending many family events together. Travis grew up in a home with his grandma, mom, sister, and brother. It was a perfect situation that taught him family values. He spent most dinners around the dinner table talking about their days. Holidays are always
big celebrations we love to spend with friends and family.

What Led Us To Adoption

From the day we met, we knew we wanted to start a family. We’ve always talked about what that would look like for us. We have always said we wanted to establish a home that is welcoming to all and full of love. To accomplish this, we knew we would start a family of our own to share our love and compassion with. We decided to adopt to give a special child the opportunity to be raised in a home full of love, support, and care. We feel our success means nothing if we have no one to share it with.
