Contact Form



    Hi! We are Zachary and Sarah. Before we tell you about ourselves, we want to thank you for making the brave and loving decision to create an adoption plan for your child. We admire your courage and want you to know that our family is praying for both you and your baby. 

    Our dating life began on a hike to see the sunset, only to get lost in the woods. After we figured our way out of the woods (with a laugh at ourselves), it did not take long to discover that we both loved being outside, enjoyed music, and shared a similar faith in God. Zachary proposed on top of a mountain, and we got married in 2010. We have continued to love and support each other since then. We make time to have a date night once a week, and once a year, we make it a point to climb a mountain to celebrate our anniversary. 

    While we were dating, we began the conversation about adopting children. Zachary has three adopted siblings, and we always imagined our family's story to include adoption. Because Sarah was in her thirties when we married, we began our family with biological children. Since God has blessed us with three beautiful girls, we would feel so blessed to adopt a little boy to complete our family.

    Financial Support

    Expectant mothers who choose to make an adoption plan may qualify for some level of financial assistance during their pregnancy. However, each person's situation and specific needs are different. Your adoption social worker can help you determine what level of assistance you qualify for and deserve. Many expectant mothers qualify for financial assistance to cover basic pregnancy and living expenses, including but not limited to - transportation reimbursement, utility assistance for phone, water, and electricity/gas, maternity clothing and supplements, etc.

    Mother Daughter Camp

    July 1, 2021

    This past weekend Elsa and I (Sarah) went to Mother-Daughter camp. We had a great time kayaking, making art projects, and singing around a campfire. The outdoors are something our family really enjoys. Zachary's sisters came to this same Girls camp when they were children too. Getting away with just one parent and one child is something special. It gives that child a chance to talk about what they think about, to ask questions, and encourages the child to explore new activities or even find one that they love! Zachary...

    Zachary grew up going to an all boys camp in the Adirondack Mountains of New York and he loved it. I know he looks forward to having son to take to Father-Son Camp one day too.

    Great Grandma’s Sauce!

    June 19, 2021

    We are very fortunate in that some of my (Zachary) grandparents are still alive, and that we get to see them. My mom's family were all farmers and through them I have inherited a love of gardening, food production, and food eating! There is great enjoyment in the anticipation of the next crop to come in and the special dishes one can make with it. I keep honey bees at my grandparent's house so the kids get to see their Great Grandparents somewhat regularly. One thing (Great) Grandma always makes...

    We are very fortunate in that some of my (Zachary) grandparents are still alive, and that we get to see them. My mom's family were all farmers and through them I have inherited a love of gardening, food production, and food eating! There is great enjoyment in the anticipation of the next crop to come in and the special dishes one can make with it. I keep honey bees at my grandparent's house so the kids get to see their Great Grandparents somewhat regularly. One thing (Great) Grandma always makes for me in the early spring is Rhubarb sauce. It is delicious! Recently Aria and I attempted to mimic it with some Rhubarb Maya picked with my mom (Mimi). The result was delicous but nothing beats (Great) Grandma's. 

    Sarah didn't come from an agriculturally inclined family. Yet, she has jumped right in and is a master berry picker! In fact, going to pick wild black raspberries near our house is one of her favorite things to do to relax after a day at work. She is also an excellent baker with all the fruit she picks. Recenty for family night we went to pick strawberries. She has since made a delicous Strawberry-Rhubarb Crisp. The wild black raspberries will be ripe soon and I can't wait for her to make a few pies out of them!

    Childlike Wonderment

    June 3, 2021

    I love the way children see the world and find excitement and pleasure in seemingly simple small things. This is one of the many reasons I enjoy spending time with my children, because they reorient my perspective and help me to continue to find wonder and joy in little things. As an adult, I enjoy climbing mountains because it is rugged, challenging, and rewarding. Our children will climb mountains too, but I think they enjoy a walk around a pond even more. Of course, when you throw in a few...

    I love the way children see the world and find excitement and pleasure in seemingly simple small things. This is one of the many reasons I enjoy spending time with my children, because they reorient my perspective and help me to continue to find wonder and joy in little things. As an adult, I enjoy climbing mountains because it is rugged, challenging, and rewarding. Our children will climb mountains too, but I think they enjoy a walk around a pond even more. Of course, when you throw in a few treats and an interesting twist it's the best time ever. 

    Our school gave us an extra day off for the Memorial Day weekend, and I made plans with a friend to take our kids on a hike out to a hill top pond. However, when Friday came around it was 30 degrees colder than when we made our plans... and raining. We contemplated doing something inside - but what kind of a lesson would that teach? And, they're already quite familiar with the insides of each other's houses. So we packed up thermoses of hot chocolate, rain coats, cookies, fresh honey comb, and some Slim Jim's and headed out. I brought along a tarp and equipment to teach them how to make a temporary lean-to for our lunch.

    You know what? They loved it! There were tones of puddles to splash in, ferns to play with, turtles to pick up, tad poles to catch, innumerable things to climb on, and old turtle nests to discover. I love teaching them new things and spending time with my kids. I especially love how their eyes and interests can take a simple walk and make it into an adventure of discovery. I hope to always have their wonderment to inspire mine.

    A Different Persective

    May 27, 2021

    This past Friday we went to a nearby park to wade in the water and grill a picnic dinner for Family Night. To our great delight, we also got to witness a hot air balloon launch. As we watched the men and women begin to fill the balloon with air, Zachary and I began to talk about whether or not we would ever want to ride in a hot air balloon.

    This past Friday we went to a nearby park to wade in the water and grill a picnic dinner for Family Night. To our great delight, we also got to witness a hot air balloon launch. As we watched the men and women begin to fill the balloon with air, Zachary and I began to talk about whether or not we would ever want to ride in a hot air balloon. I commented that the balloon we were watching had a well timed launch as the sun was beginning to sink lower in the sky, painting the clouds red and orange and pink. All those colors would make a gorgeous view from up in that balloon. 

    When they started blowing up that enormous balloon, it seemed so big but in less than 15 minutes, it had become a small round object floating in the sky. I thought about what a different view it would be looking at the rolling hills and lakes and trees from way up high. It would be a completely new perspecive. Life is like that. Things happen to us that we don't understand, life twists and turns, and we can get lost in all the things spinning around us that seem so big right now. In those moments it is hepful for me to remember something I was taught a long time ago about everything happening for a reason and God wasting nothing. That means that things that seem like failures or mistakes, might actually be the best thing that could have ever happened - to free me from a bad relationship, or put me in a place to meet my husband, or just give me the ability to relate to someone going through the same thing I went through. 

    I can't imagine what it must be like to be in your shoes right now, but I assure you God has a plan for you and your baby. If adoption is part of that plan, we would be honored to raise your child as our own, to love him and teach him and provide for him. We would be happy to send you updates to let you know how he is doing - what sports or instruments he plays, what he likes to eat, what he wants to be when he grows up, and how he is thriving in the life you gave him. We want more than anything for you to have peace about your decision. We are praying for you and your baby.

    Imagination

    May 19, 2021

    Recently the girls and I went to one of our favorite walking spots. The girls go there often with Daddy during the week while I am at work so they were excited to show me some of their latest discoveries. The first one we came across was "Roco." Maya and Aria ran ahead on the trail and began gathering gravel and carrying it over to a few large rocks and dumping their handfuls into the cracks between two of the biggest ones. "We're feeding Roco!" they excalaimed. I kept walking...

    Recently the girls and I went to one of our favorite walking spots. The girls go there often with Daddy during the week while I am at work so they were excited to show me some of their latest discoveries. The first one we came across was "Roco." Maya and Aria ran ahead on the trail and began gathering gravel and carrying it over to a few large rocks and dumping their handfuls into the cracks between two of the biggest ones. "We're feeding Roco!" they excalaimed. I kept walking and saw that someone had painted a face on the rocks and they were infact putting their "snacks" in it's open mouth. I smiled.

    I love their imaginations - and the imagination of whoever painted the rocks. Imagination, Elsa says, is "taking something real and doing something not real with it." Imagination is what enables one to see buildings in a pile of rocks, a sweater in a pile of yarn, and success out of failure. I cannot know what a birth mom thinks or feels but I would guess that every birth mom has an imagined life for herself and for her child. And maybe right now for her to achieve her dreams, and for her child to have the chance to have the life they deserve, adoption provides a beautiful solution. We pray everyday for the mother of our son - that she is healthy and safe and that she has nothing but peace about her decision to give her and her baby a chance to have all they imagine their lives to be.

    Feliz cinco de Mayo!

    May 5, 2021

    Feliz cinco de Mayo! We're not Mexican but we certainly enjoy Mexican food and culture. One of my favorite Mexican dishes to make is Carintas. I have this recipe for Carnitas that everyone in the family loves - except my cousin's husband Fernando who is actually from Mexico. He gives it half a head nod. I really enjoy most dishes that involve pork. Each year we have a family camp out and pig roast. We smoke ours, but Fernando tells me that back home they wrap the pig in banna...

I really enjoy most dishes that involve pork. Each year we have a family camp out and pig roast. We smoke ours, but Fernando tells me that back home they wrap the pig in banna leaves and bury it in the ground with hot coals for hours. That sounds amazing! I would love to try that someday. Another Mexican dish that I plan to try soon is Barbacoa. Some friends are coming to help with a project next week, and I'm going to make them dinner as thanks. I'm going to make barbacoa. Our friend Maddy, who is Mexican, is coming to help and she tells me her favorite dish is Barbacoa. Let's see how many head nods I get from her for my attempt!

    Dandelions and Lacrosse Sticks

    May 2, 2021

    This week was the second week of lacrosse. Elsa and I (Sarah) were walking up to the field (which hasn't been mowed yet) and Elsa said "Mommy, there must be thousands of dandelions." She was right. Whole halves of playing fields were speckled with yellow flowers. She picked a few on the way to the far field where the kindergarteners play.  "Look how big this one is!" she said showing me a dandelion whose flower was at least an inch across. We both put the flower to our noses and...

She was right. Whole halves of playing fields were speckled with yellow flowers. She picked a few on the way to the far field where the kindergarteners play. 

    "Look how big this one is!" she said showing me a dandelion whose flower was at least an inch across. We both put the flower to our noses and sniffed. Then we looked at each other and couldn't help but laugh - for we both now had yellow pollen all over our noses. 

    I think today went pretty well. This is my first year as a "parent helper" and my first year coaching lacrosse since before I started medical school! Today we worked on cradling the ball (keeping it in your stick). Hopefully I helped one or two kids keep the ball in their sticks a littel better than they did yesterday but even if not, how could you not have fun playing games called hungry hungry hippos and steal the bacon!

    I hope my children know if they never score a goal or stop a shot, that'll be okay. Zachary and I love seeing our kids having fun, growing, learning, and loving life. If they want to play lacrosse or soccer - sports we know very well - that's great. If they want to teach us water polo or oil painting or tap dancing - we'll learn. It is our hope that whatever sports or music or dance or art our children want to do, that they will thrive in them - knowing that their value is not based on what they do and that we love them no matter what.

    A Saturday in Spring

    April 22, 2021

    There are so many things Zachary and I hope to pass on to our children. We want them to see us being healthy and active, cooking and eating healthy food, loving people around us, and enjoying the outdoors. Saturdays are a good example of our life. This past Saturday a friend of mine (Sarah) came over for tea on the front porch steps. The girls practiced violin for me in the kitchen while I did the dishes.

    There are so many things Zachary and I hope to pass on to our children. We want them to see us being healthy and active, cooking and eating healthy food, loving people around us, and enjoying the outdoors. Saturdays are a good example of our life. This past Saturday a friend of mine (Sarah) came over for tea on the front porch steps. The girls practiced violin for me in the kitchen while I did the dishes. Zachary had to sleep for a few hours because he worked a night shift the night before. When he woke up we joined folks from our church picking up trash for earth day. We went by our  favorite neighborhood gorcery store where they have the best donuts in town and sandwiches so big you can feed the whole family with just one sandwhich (well maybe two). We drove 30 min to visit and drop off some clothse to little cousin Ellie. We listened to stories on CDs in the van on the way back and forth.

    Later, the girls played with their neighborhood friends both inside and outside. Zachary hung the new wind chimes Grammy gave to Mommy in the back yard. We watched a robin gathering materials for a new nest from our window. Elsa and I went to one of our favorite nearby mountain biking spots for a ride. I am so proud of Elsa. She does an amazing job and is venturing into rockier, steeper, and more narrow trails! The younger two read books and hid under blankets in the living room yelling "Find us!" - while Daddy prepared dinner. We have a very happy and full life, but it still feels incomplete. We look forward to sharing our lives wiht another baby one day soon.

    Tremendous Climb

    April 15, 2021

    We've been busy since we got back from visiting my (Sarah's) familly in Virginia with work (never fun after a vacation), adjusting to in person school again (yay!), and general spring work around the house. In person sports are resuming in our area, and we love lacrosse. I'm going to be to be coaching two of the girl's teams this spring once the season begins. In the meantime, here is another fun memory from our recent trip.  While up in the Blue Ridge Mountains we went on a family hike...

In person sports are resuming in our area, and we love lacrosse. I'm going to be to be coaching two of the girl's teams this spring once the season begins. In the meantime, here is another fun memory from our recent trip. 

    While up in the Blue Ridge Mountains we went on a family hike to a place called The Devil's Marble Yard. After a wooded path, the trail opened up into a field of enormous boulders that looked like some giant had dumped their wheelbarrow off the side of the mountain. There was a trail that went around it but we were determined to climb up through the boulders. Four of the cousins (Elsa, Maya, Ashleigh, and Eli) loved the challenge of ascending the giant rocks up, up, up to reach the gorgeous views from the top where we had a picnic. The boulders were much too large for Aria so Zachary carried her up, sometimes one rock at a time, to the top. 

    I was so proud of all the kids - they were brave and did not give up. I am glad that our family is so adventurous. It is a good thing Aria really only needs to be carried in special circumstances - it opens up the baby carrier for when we have a new little family member to come along on our adventures.

    Easter Egg Hunts!

    April 9, 2021

    This year the kids had five egg hunts! They love the challenge of finding Easter Eggs so much that one egg hunt a year is not enough. We had one with the neighborhood friends. After the kids had found all the eggs they decied to hide them again themselves so they could enjoy finding them all over. So the three oldest children hid the empty eggs around the yard, and then all of the kids went looking for them with flashlights.  I will confess that the children are not the...

    This year the kids had five egg hunts! They love the challenge of finding Easter Eggs so much that one egg hunt a year is not enough. We had one with the neighborhood friends. After the kids had found all the eggs they decied to hide them again themselves so they could enjoy finding them all over. So the three oldest children hid the empty eggs around the yard, and then all of the kids went looking for them with flashlights. 

    I will confess that the children are not the only ones who love Easter Egg hunts. I (Sarah) love them so much that I took Easter Eggs with us on our recent trip to visit my family in Virginia and we had two more hunts with the Virginia cousins. For the first one, Aunt Barbara even surprised the kids by dressing up as a big rabbit to hug the kids as they ran around searching for the brightly filled treasures. The second hunt was at my brother's house up in the mountains, for this one each child was assigned a certain color so the eggs could be hid with varying degrees of difficulty. It worked really well. Aria would yell to Elsa "a pink one!" and after cousin Eli found all of his eggs he stalked around looking for the green ones for cousin Ashleigh and the purple ones for Maya.

    The girls love spending time with the cousins. Eli, in particular is super fun - he climbs trees, soars on the rope swing, and very sweetly, he always makes sure the littler ones are catching up. He is great with all the girl cousins, but he is especially thrilled that one day soon he will FINALLY have a boy cousin!!!

    Birds, Bikes, & Syrup

    March 25, 2021

    We are all excited about the changing of the seasons, and we're spending lots of time in our favorite place to be - outside! I got the girls' bikes out and all tuned up for the year, and they're back to cruising up and down the street with their friends. Last weekend we went up to a friend's house for a hearty outdoor pancake and sausage lunch. They make Maple Syrup so we helped them collect sap and boil it into syrup as well.

Each day the girls have been checking the progress of flowers slowly coming up in the yard. Life - Lots of Life!

    Party Once The Bus Leaves!

    March 19, 2021

    Our family is fortunate in that Sarah and I have been able to adjust our work schedules so that there is always a parent at home. At one point we each worked part-time jobs so that there would always be someone here, but for the last two or three  years I have been the primary at home parent because my job allows me to work every other weekend and still keep benefits. Today was somewhat typical of our days at home. After sending Mommy off to work and her sisters...

Today was somewhat typical of our days at home. After sending Mommy off to work and her sisters off to school, Aria got to enjoy free time with Daddy! This included a couple of Easter Egg Hunts, stories while in a bubble bath, hanging up a bird house, and playing with the dog in the backyard. There were still some chores to do and errands to run, but we took time to have fun while doing these too - like stopping to watch an entire train go past on the tracks and checking out the new chicks at the pet supply store.

    Four-Leaf Clovers!

    March 17, 2021

    Happy St. Patrick's Day! In honor of St. Patrick's day I [Sarah] thought I would share a fun memory about clovers. My mom can find a four-leaf clover anywhere. When I was a kid my brother and I would search and search through a patch of clovers looking for that lucky four-leaf one and my mom would walk up, peak over our shoulders, and say "Did you see that one right there?" When she first came to visit our new house (six years ago) she found about six of them...

We are looking forward to seeing Grammy in a few weeks when we go visit for spring break. Who knows, maybe she'll show off her four-leaf clover skills again!😊

    Pie day!

    March 14, 2021

    When I [Sarah] was a kid, I can only really remember having pie on holidays or at my grandmother's house. She would make pumpkin pie just for a Sunday dinner. She used to joke with me that I liked to have pie with my whipped cream rather than whipped cream on my pie.  Since I have been an adult, I have discovered that there are WAY more types of pie than pumpkin!  At holidays there is usually a pecan and an apple. In the summer, I love making blackcap pie...

She used to joke with me that I liked to have pie with my whipped cream rather than whipped cream on my pie.  Since I have been an adult, I have discovered that there are WAY more types of pie than pumpkin!  At holidays there is usually a pecan and an apple. In the summer, I love making blackcap pie (a type of wild black raspberry that we pick in the woods near our house). Sometimes we get creative and make peach streusel or strawberry or apple raspberry. Today happens to be National Pie day so, to celebrate, we got together with our good friends (and their three children) for dinner and some pie. Today, we stuck to some old favorites.  I made cherry and our friends made apple, and I am pretty sure, judging by the messy faces on the kids, that everyone enjoyed them both. It will be fun when there is another little person to end up with a cherry pie mustache.

    Always Learning

    March 11, 2021

    Sarah and I both love learning. I mean this more than academically, but as a way of life. We love discovering new things, new facts, new words, or ways of seeing things. Life is so exciting because there is always something else to learn or master. We seek to encourage this with our kids as well. So much learning can happen through play, especially with children. Lately Aria has been really into puzzles. We love doing them with her and watching how her spacial awareness and finger coordination grows. Maya...

Lately Aria has been really into puzzles. We love doing them with her and watching how her spacial awareness and finger coordination grows. Maya too is very hands on. She has been asking to learn how to use tools in the wood shop so She and I have been working on some fun looking birdhouses to put out this spring. When these are finally complete I'll post a picture of them. Elsa has been into writing and drawing so we have been making opportunities for her to do these with us as well. We will be keenly watching for whatever our adopted son's talents or interests will be, and will find ways to help him learn and grow into them.

    Easter Eggs!

    March 4, 2021

    We have an annual tradition where my parents (Zach) come and dye Easter Eggs with the kids. Mimi loves to come up with new and creative methods to die the eggs. This year she used shaving cream (see blog picture), dyed rice, and a spray bottle tie dye method. Mimi and Poppy love seeing their grandkids and Mimi especially loves coming up with creative projects to do with them. They don't live too far away so we get to see them at least once a month. They are very excited...

    Four Seasons of Fun!

    February 25, 2021

    One of the wonderful things about Central New York is that we have four distinct and wonderful seasons, each with their own fun and activities. Right now winter is on the wane. We are beginning to hear snipetts of spring bird song outside, and we're anticipating gardening activities and working in the family apple orchard. One of these nights we'll get together and make a bunch of origami seed starting cups to start our pepper and tomato plants in. But winter fun is not over yet! Recently Sarah and I...

Recently Sarah and I were able to get away cross country skiing for a day while the girls had a fun grandparent day. Also, me (Zachary) and a good friend took our kids on a sled/hiking adventure to a nearby lean-to for a winter picnic lunch during February break.

    Heart Art

    February 16, 2021

    I coordinate a monthly fun outing for the kids group from our church. These can include geo-caching, field day games, sledding outings, etc. We are blessed with many talented people in our life, who want to invest in children,and a friend of ours is an art teacher. She volunteered to run a special art class for this kids this past weekend. I enjoy getting to know all the kids and brainstorming different activities that connect with their various strengths and interests. Our daughter Maya really shone through in this event and she created this wonderful heart print.

    Snow Snack!

    January 28, 2021

    I love to take the kids adventure sledding on free days in the winter. What this means is that rather than go sledding at one of the great sledding hills in our nearby parks or in our front yard, we head out to the nearby State Forest and find places to sled down and through the trees. Here Aria is taking a snack break while her sisters keep sledding. I can't wait until there is another little person ready to come sledding with us!
