dear expectant mother
We are so blessed and appreciative that you are considering us to raise your baby. We have worked very hard, for a long time, to get to the point where we are confident we can provide a wonderful home and life for a child. Thank you for taking the time to look at our profile. We hope you are able to get a picture of how much we are invested in being wonderful parents and giving your child all that we can in life.
We live in a diverse community, filled with wonderful neighbors and exciting things to do. Zack will do an outstanding job helping him or her study for school, and Briana looks forward to reading books and exploring the world with a little one. We will both enjoy making wonderful healthy meals and snacks for the family, teaching your child about the arts, nature, and cooking. We love our family and our two kitties very much and will do anything for them. We live a very healthy life and have tons of love, energy, care, and dedication we are so eager to share with you child. We can not wait to grow our family and we thank you for considering giving us the opportunity to do so!
Thank you so much for taking the time to learn a bit about us and consider us for raising your child.
We are Briana and Zack, we met while attending a wedding in Kentucky in the summer of 2011. We both traveled “home” for this wedding, as Zack was living on the East Coast at the time and Briana in Illinois. After long-distance dating, then living in the same city, we were engaged, and then married in the spring of 2013. Our wedding was in Kentucky, close to our family, friends, and where we grew up. We have now been married for over six and a half years. Zack works for an engineering firm as a civil engineer, a ten-minute bike ride from home. Briana owns her own fitness and wellness business just five blocks from our home in a beautiful, diverse city neighborhood. We love cooking, exercising, exploring the city, and spending time with family and friends.
Our Home & Pets
We own a three floor townhouse, where we live with our two cats, Prince and Sampson. Our home has an adorable backyard, nestled in a family-friendly neighborhood. There’s an elementary and middle school less than a block away and two beautiful parks within immediate walking distance, and many more are close by. Our neighborhood has regular block parties, potlucks, and kids running around in the courtyard in the summer. We live near some of the neatest attractions for children: beaches, museums of all kinds, learning centers, and we can not wait to share these experiences with your child. We bought our home with the intentions of building and raising our family here. We look forward to experience all of the amazing things our community has to offer with a little one!
Our Extended Family
Zack has one older brother who is married with 5 children, ages 4 (twins), 6,8, and 11.
Briana is an only child. Both of us were raised by strong, independent, single Mothers. And while Zack’s biological father has passed, we are blessed with an amazing step-father on his side and Briana is still very connected to the man that served as her father figure growing up and her biological father’s family as well.
We love holidays and traditions. Our neighborhood has an amazing Halloween tradition of parties, games, and trick-or-treating. Briana and her “father figure” have always gone to Christmas in the Park on Christmas Eve night to see the lights, and she cannot wait to share the joy and excitement of this tradition with a little one too! And with our nieces and nephews the holidays will, without-a-doubt, be exciting!
Once a year, Zack’s family and family friends campout for a long weekend. This tradition has been alive since before Zack was born, and we can’t wait to see all of the generations of parents, grandparents, and children having a great time, singing songs, making s'mores, swimming in the creek, playing volleyball, and spending time with each other in a cell-phone-free, family and friend-filled weekend!
We look forward to sharing all of this with your child and making new traditions as our family grows!
What Led Us To Adoption
We are eager to start our family and have children. After Briana’s battle with cancer (now cured) we realized this was the best choice for us to grow our family. We have worked a long time to be in the place where we feel we can provide a wonderful life for a child in a loving, supportive, and safe home. We have seen the beautiful gift of adoption throughout all sides of our family, cousins on all sides are either adopted or have adopted children to grow their families. It is a very normal thing in our families, so your child will be in good company, and we feel it has been such a gift to everyone involved.

Choose a Family for
Your Baby With Confidence
As you browse our list of hopeful adoptive parents, you can feel confident in knowing that all of the adoptive families working with Angel Adoption are prepared to offer your baby a safe, stable, and loving environment along with a wealth of opportunities for a happy and fulfilling life.
Each adoptive parent has been thoroughly evaluated through a home study course conducted by a licensed agency. A completed home study means the family is emotionally, physically, and financially ready to adopt a baby.
The home study process includes assessments of each parent’s character, marital stability, financial situation, lifestyle, and medical history. The agency also runs background checks to verify there is no record of criminal activity or child abuse. In addition, a social worker will inspect the family’s home to ensure it is a safe environment for a child.
Furthermore, Angel Adoption requires each family to be educated on adopting and parenting. After a baby has been placed with the adoptive family, a social worker will continue to monitor and supervise the family. We go to great lengths to make sure all the families you have to choose from are going to be excellent parents for your baby!Return to Waiting Families
