Trish & Zac
Last Activity: 6 hours ago

Our home is peaceful. Our hearts are full of love. Our days are marked with joy. All this we long to share with a child.

Hello - we’re Zac and Trish! We’re excited to begin the adoption process again and are grateful that you’re taking a few minutes to look at our profile. We want to begin by celebrating the life within you. This little one will be a unique gift to the world, filling it with more love and light!

We commend you for all of the love and care you are already showing this child. And we commend you for your bravery and selflessness. The fact that you are considering all of your options and keeping your child’s best interest at heart is something to be affirmed. May you find strength, wisdom, support and peace as you determine what is best for you and your child.

If you click around our profile (we've uploaded a bunch of pics and videos) and check out our Adoption Diary (which we update once or twice/week), we hope you’ll enjoy learning a little about us. Our goal is to give you a glimpse into our lives and provide a sense of what we value, what we can offer a child and what kind of hopes and dreams we have for our family.

Among other information, hopefully you’ll discover what a gift open adoption has been in our lives (and be wowed by the cuteness of big-brother-to-be), you’ll become acquainted with our supportive network of family and friends and you’ll even get an idea of what a typical Saturday is like in our family (it includes pancakes!).

We'll also try our best to keep it real. We are who we are and don't want to pretend to be anything we're not - especially perfect, because we are far from it! However, we do tend to believe that in the adoption world, perfect matches can be made, and that's our prayer for us and for your child.

If you would like to get to know us further, we can promise you an open, honest and compassionate relationship from the start. We'll journey with you through the ups and downs, we'll support you however we can and we'll join you in wanting the very best for your child - whatever the end result may be.

And, if you ultimately choose us to parent your child, we promise you that we will pour everything we have into your sweet one - our love, our time and our resources. Our life’s goal would be to care for this child and do everything in our power to help them become the amazing person God created them to be. There’s no greater privilege we could possibly have in this lifetime!

We hope to connect soon, and in the mean time, God bless and keep you and your precious babe!

Warmly,
Trish & Zac

Who We Are

Let's do this bullet-point style ...

2007: We met in Phoenix, AZ. At the time, we had both moved there as young, single professionals, looking for adventure (and apparently love too).

2008: We got married (Whoa - that was fast!)

2010: We received an infertility diagnosis. That was a pretty big bummer. But it led us down the adoption path, for which we will be forever grateful.

2012: While trying to adopt internationally, some friends connected us with an expectant mother here in the States who was making an adoption plan. We started communicating with her, and six weeks later she delivered our son. (Whoa - that was fast too!) We were at the hospital when he was born, and it was by far the most sacred day of our lives.

2013-2014: We chased our son around and slept very little. Zac worked hard, advancing his skills as a dentist, while Trish rocked the stay-at-home mom life (while attending grad school).

2015: We relocated to Indianapolis (Trish's hometown) to be close to her family and friends. Zac continued working as a dentist. Trish graduated from seminary and started working part-time at a church.

2017: We purchased a dental practice in a charming small town in Indiana and moved there.

Today:
- Zac runs a successful dental practice. Trish helps out and is working on some other career-related projects.
- Our son charms his teachers and all the girls in his Pre-K class.
- We play a lot of Hot Wheels, Legos and Uno.
- On the weekends, we cheer our son on at soccer games, visit with friends and family (Trish's family is about 90 minutes away now; Trish's best friend and her family are down the street), hike, visit museums and attend church.
- We continue to be grateful for our open adoption and the special relationship we have with our son's birth family.
- We also continue to hope and pray that our dream of growing our family will one day become a reality. There's room for one more little human in all that we do, and life will be even sweeter when we welcome another child into it!

February Fun

In an effort to combat the winter blues, right after the new year, we planned a February family getaway to Great Wolf Lodge that we could look forward to. After much anticipation, we traveled there this week, and it did not disappoint!

It was our second time at Great Wolf Lodge, and we just love the place. There’s an excellent indoor water park, along with other family-friendly activities. What made this trip extra-special is that it turns out some new friends that we met recently at the YMCA were going to be there at the same time, so our son had a play mate. And this trip was great because the Lodge wasn’t very crowded. In fact, Zac is pretty sure we rode the big water slides at least 20 times. (I lost count.)

One thing I have come to believe in recent years is that it’s fun experiences such as these that add richness to our lives and stick out in our memories. I want our children to value experiences over things, and I look forward to making many memories with them.

Father and Son

This weekend I had a little mini-reunion with some of my best friends, so I was gone from Saturday afternoon through Sunday afternoon. That meant the boys were on their own and got to enjoy some male bonding. That’s never a problem for them. They’re both active and athletic, so they can always find something that they enjoy doing together. In fact, they went to the aquarium, played basketball and swam at the YMCA, and ate at our son’s favorite restaurants - Chick-Fil-A and Five Guys.

I’m grateful that our son has such a loving, engaged and fun dad. And it warms my heart knowing what a special bond they share. I certainly wouldn’t mind bringing another female into the house at some point, but at the same time, it also wouldn’t be the worst thing to be outnumbered by three handsome guys and see them all having so much fun together.

On another note, the sun is shining in our town this morning. (Doesn’t the sunshine make winter so much more bearable?!) Whoever is reading this today, thank you for stopping by, and I hope the sun is shining on you as well. Peace and love from me to you!
