Hi, we’re Clint and Zack!
We greatly admire the choice you’re making to consider adoption for your child. It’s hard to put into words just how grateful we are that you’re willing to let us become an integral part of your child’s world. Without adoption, we would never have the chance to become parents. Nurturing, educating, and guiding a young person into adulthood is an experience we’ve been preparing for in our 8 years as a couple and something we’ve both wanted for a long time.
After five years together, we got married and bought our home in 2015. The hope of one-day becoming parents was a big part of why we picked our house and neighborhood. We live close to family members and a large circle of friends that’s excited to support us during this journey. We’re prepared to do all that we can to provide your child with every opportunity and all the love that our family can offer.
We are a strong, organized, energetic, and easygoing couple that will focus on putting your child’s education and upbringing above all else. We appreciate your willingness to spend a little time learning about us and our lives. We would love the opportunity to share more about ourselves, but we’re also eager to hear your story.

We are fortunate to have a large and loving family. Clint’s family lives mostly in Philadelphia, including Clint’s parents, who are so excited that their first grandchild will live only a few miles away. Clint is an only child, so his side of the family is small but incredibly tight-knit.
On Zack’s side, we have relatives in New York, California, Florida, and even Spain! We’re always planning the next reunion or visit with the many cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents. Zack’s brother and his wife have one daughter (and hope to have more), so your child already has one cousin to meet. Zack’s parents are recently retired and are looking forward to spending as much time as they can helping us in the early days of parenthood.
Our community in Philadelphia is large and growing all the time, especially as many of our friends start families of their own. Clint’s lifelong friends are like extended family, and we spend a lot of our free time enjoying what the city has to offer with them and their children. We also have several friends within walking distance of our home.
Our neighborhood is a vibrant, diverse, and growing section of Philadelphia that’s full of young families. There are several nice parks nearby, including one overlooking the Delaware River, and the nearby rec center, playground, and pool are undergoing a full renovation! We’re also very accessible to the rest of the city, and love how easy it is to explore.
Our home is on a quiet street with several families (our next door neighbors are expecting their first very soon.) We have a tree-covered backyard and a rooftop deck where we can spend time playing outside or enjoying a summer meal. We’re proud of our home and think it will be a comfortable and beautiful place to raise a child.
