We have been talking about adopting from when we started dating. Zephyr has struggled with fertility, Nick loves being a father, and both of us have wanted to have more children. We know what a commitment it is, and we are more than ready to raise a child in a loving home.
We believe it is really important for a child to be able to know their birth mother.
We have both had lots of experience with children! Nick was a single father to his daughter, Sage, since she was two, and was awarded full custody when she was eight. He loves being a father, and has always wanted more children. Zephyr comes from a large family with lots of nieces and nephews and has always wanted a family of her own. She loves being a mother to Sage.
We have a cozy home in the country.
Across the street there is a small creek and just down the road there is a wonderful park with a playground, swimming pond, baseball diamond, as well as volleyball & basketball courts.
Our living room is full of games to play and a warm fire. In the summer, we like to spend our time outdoors on the patio.
The woods are full of wildlife and we are frequently visited by families of deer, and many different species of bird including a pair of majestic owls.
We love having our family and friends over, and having children in the house.
We live in a rural area only two hours from New York City by train and 20 minutes away from two smaller cities.
In the fall there is an apple festival, a pumpkin festival, a trout parade, a honey bee festival and corn mazes.
Nick is the best guy ever. He has a heart as big as Montana and a brain as big as all outdoors. He is immensely creative and open minded. He is always cracking jokes, and loves learning new things and trying new things.
Nick can be relied upon to do the work that isn't fun. He does the dishes when I cook, and takes care of the house and the yard. But he also likes to create special projects. This year he built an cat house from scratch (no plans!) and put together a chicken coop in a few hours.
He is a wonderful father to our daughter, Sage, and I can see how much he is ready to give to another child.
Zephyr is a breath of fresh air into my life - and the lives of everyone who gets to know her. Never in my life had I met someone as smart, honest, loving, understanding, creative, interesting, funny, (the list goes on).
Zephyr is an amazing mother to my daughter Sage. She brings a new dimension to Sage's life that I couldn't. It has been truly wonderful to watch their relationship grow and flourish.
She loves children, and is warm, open, and so excited to raise a child.
