Meghan + Zac

Hello! We are Zac, Meghan, and Adelyn from Texas, and are excited to introduce ourselves to you. We deeply honor and respect your interest in considering adoption and understand that it is not an easy decision to make. We are committed to providing a loving, warm family in which your child can grow and thrive.

Our Story

“Our Story” Image

In January 2017 we met online - both ready for a fresh start in a new year. We made the crazy decision to have our first date on Valentine's Day and Cupid was in our corner! We immediately connected and dated throughout the spring and summer with lots of fun dates; baseball games, concerts and weekend getaways.

That Fall, both of us were surprised and excited to discover we were pregnant. We quickly settled into the idea of starting a family together. We did not stay settled too long because the months ahead had bumps in the road.... Our daughter, Adelyn, was born 10 weeks before her due date. Weathering this storm only strengthened our relationship. Soon after bringing Adelyn home from the NICU, both Meghan and Adelyn faced serious medical complications. Once we made it through these challenges, we knew we could get through anything in life together.

Zac proposed, and we had a fairy tale beach wedding in the islands with our close friends and family. We celebrated our lives and our marriage locally with a Caribbean themed reception. Life for our family is stable, secure, loving, and adventurous!

Our Why

“Our Why” Image

We both dreamed of having a large family, but the pregnancy journey has not been easy. Prior to meeting Zac, Meghan had a stillborn son, Rhett, at 39 weeks due to unknown causes. The surprise and the medical challenges of our pregnancy with Adelyn proved her premature birth to be nothing short of a miracle. We went through the IVF journey, and always had adoption on our hearts along the way. As difficult as these experiences have been for our family, we are better spouses, stronger partners and blessed parents. We still have the strong desire to grow our family, and we are looking to add another miracle and blessing to our story. We have more love to give, and can provide a happy, committed, and financially stable home and family. More than anything, we want Adelyn to know what it is like to have a sibling - just like we do - a best friend to spend time with, go to school with and grow up with. We are excited to begin another chapter of parenthood and look forward to all the joys, challenges and adventures of growing our family.

Meet Meghan by Zac

“Meet Meghan by Zac” Image

The perfect way to describe Meghan in a word would be enthusiastic. As a self-proclaimed "morning person" Meghan jumps out of bed with the outlook that she can make today the best day ever for not only her family but anyone she encounters. Meghan can go into a room of strangers and make friends with each person she meets as well as know their life story after one conversation. Meghan's outgoing personality can be traced back to her Texas Panhandle roots where she grew up in a large, close-knit family being the oldest of four siblings, with grandparents and cousins close-by. Adelyn and I are big fans of her delicious dinner creations along with well-loved weekend breakfast specials. She keeps us busy with walks around the neighborhood, trips to run errands and evenings spent swimming in the backyard. Meghan always dreamed of being a mother and it comes naturally to her. Even on the hardest days, you can count on Meghan's sense of humor to keep us laughing as a family. I could never have imagined a better wife, mother and role model for my children.

Meet Zac by Meghan

Zac was born and raised in Oklahoma but made his way to Texas as soon as he could! I love teasing him about being "an Okie". As a partner, Zac and I balance each other out which makes us a great team. Knowing you have someone who cares enough to help out in times of need is an important relationship benefit. I admire Zac for his many strengths. He is great with family finances and an amazing provider. Zac is easy-going and even- tempered, staying calm in the most difficult situations. As a husband and father, Zac spends his free time hanging out with family and friends, enjoying many sporting events, and stays fully involved in Adelyn's busy schedule.

Meet Adelyn, "Addy"

“Meet Adelyn, "Addy"” Image

Adelyn is a sweet, kind 5-year-old, who is happy and joyful and always has a smile on her face. She is a girly-girl that loves her baby dolls, playing dress-up, braids and bows in her hair, and the color purple. When the sun is shining, she likes to be outside playing with bubbles and sidewalk chalk, riding her bike, digging in her sandbox, and swimming. This year she played basketball, dance, and soccer for the first time. We encourage Addy to explore different extracurricular activities, as we would with any future children. Adelyn loves school and starts kindergarten in the fall. Her favorite thing at school is reading books and playing at recess. Adelyn will tell you she is SUPER excited to be a big sister. We have no doubt she will be the best, most helpful big sister ever, and will build a strong lifelong bond with her new sibling.

Our Family

We love our extended family! Addy has 8 cousins, and two sets of grandparents that she regularly spends time with. Growing up in a big family with 27 cousins, Meghan experienced the great joy of extended family. Zac's family is smaller and close knit, and he has loved being welcomed with open arms into the big family. Cousins are built-in best friends at family gatherings and we are excited to watch our family grow and create lasting memories with their cousins and grandparents.

Our Home

“Our Home” Image

We live in the DFW Metroplex in an urban neighborhood and are surroung by great public and private schools with diverse populations. Our house has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms with plenty of room to welcome a new baby. We love our big, beautiful oak trees and backyard oasis. Many weekends are spend outside working in the yard, planting flowers, and just relaxing. Throughout the year we are swimming, grilling, and having friends over. Our neighborhood has lots of kids and we love spending time with other families in the area. It is important to us to live in a community where our children can enjoy growing up with lots of neighborhood kids, creating lifelong memories. We live just minutes from downtown which makes it convenient to explore fun restaurants, the zoo, special events, and many great parks.

Travel & Adventures

We LOVE the beach - whether it's sitting in the sand listening to waves, swimming in the ocean or walking down the coast looking for seashells. We know life is precious and we want to live life to the fullest. Travel allows us to get away from the everyday grind, connect as a family and learn about different cultures and places in this amazing world. Our family has a place in Florida that we visit several times a year. Additionally, we try to get away two or three times a year to visit the Caribbean.

"Zac is a kind, funny, devoted father and husband. I am so proud of him for being the kind of dad who is actively involved in the routine day-to-day activities of Adelyn.
