First off, we wish you could know how much we want to reach out right now to give you a big hug and tell you how loved you are. We have a deep respect for you and the decision you are making for your child. It is truly the most selfless act of love. It’s so hard to communicate everything we want to say to you in a short letter, but we want to give you an opportunity to get to know our family and have a glimpse of what life would be like for your child in our family.
We are high school sweethearts who have been married since 2008. We’ve had a heart for adoption since before we were married and are thankful for the opportunity to be pursuing it now. We have a preschooler son, Estes, and a young daughter, Olive, and live in a beautiful part of Tennessee.
With us, your child would have a stable, loving, encouraging home filled with fun and laughter. They would get a dad who is always there for them, a mom that loves them more than life itself, and a big brother and sister to be best friends with. With Amy as a full-time stay-at-home mom, there are endless hours of fort building, craft making, outdoor exploring, book reading, and cuddling.
Your child would also have a giant extended family to do life with: doting grandparents, cute cousins, and the most fun uncles and aunts around. We have a group of close friends from church with young kids that we spend lots of time with too. It’s not uncommon to have a house full of people sharing a meal, with children running everywhere. Our whole crew loves and supports us completely and are all thrilled to bring another child into the fold.
We love to travel and plan to take our children all over the world. We want them to learn about other cultures and see how people live in different parts of the world. We also want to celebrate your child’s heritage and help them understand where they came from.
If you choose us, your child will grow up in an atmosphere of love, acceptance, and family. We believe God created your child for a specific reason and has a big plan for their life. We will spend our lives helping them find their passion and fulfill that plan.
Zak, Amy, Estes, & Olive
