Hello! We are Zack, David and Sophia from Oakland, California. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. We understand that you want to make the right choice for you and your child and appreciate your considering us as an adoptive family. We would love to be there to support you during your journey and we hope to connect with you in a way that feels comfortable. We are very excited at the prospect of growing our family and we welcome the opportunity to learn more about you.
We met in college and have been together for over sixteen years. We were introduced to each other by mutual friends and have enjoyed many laughter-filled days together ever since. Zack proposed to David in 2008, the very day same-sex marriage became legal in California, and we were married a few months later at San Francisco’s beautiful city hall. Sophia came into our lives through an open adoption in February of 2015 and has brought us tremendous joy. Zack is a high school assistant principal who enjoys helping students achieve their potential and David is an investigative analyst for the federal government who enjoys solving mysteries. We pride ourselves on the work we do to help others and to make the world a better place. We are fortunate that David has a flexible schedule and can care for our children during the week while Zack has summers and several weeks off throughout the year to allow us to travel and spend quality time together as a family.
