Meet Zach & Mellissa N.

Adoptive family

Hi there.

We are Zach and Melissa, and we are so grateful you are taking this time to get to know us. If you choose us to parent your child, it would be the greatest blessing of our lives.

After becoming engaged in 2016, we bought our first home together in North Star, Ohio. We were married October 14, 2017. We are currently a family of three, with our beloved little dog, Rocky! We truly love our home, community, friends, and the life we’ve built together. We have a big backyard that bumps up to farmland that feels like it goes on forever. We enjoy spending time there with family and friends for bonfires and cooking out and often go camping and fishing, too.

About Zach Zach grew up in Versailles, Ohio, the oldest of five boys and remains super close with his brothers. He was a great athlete, playing three sports all the way through high school. Baseball led him to college at Ohio Northern University where he made life-long friends with his roommates, met and fell in love with Melissa, and prepared himself for a future in construction. He enjoys his career and appreciates seeing his projects come to fruition. Zach is hard-working and dedicated – a man who cares and provides for his family. He is a great husband, dog-dad, brother, son, uncle, and friend, and can’t wait to be a dad!

About Melissa Melissa grew up in Centerville, Ohio, the youngest of three girls and remains best friends with her sisters. Her dad, a coach, instilled in her a love of sports, while her mom nurtured her love for nature, animals, and crafting. Melissa enjoyed hiking, camping, swimming, crafting, and simply spending time with friends and family. Like Zach, she attended Ohio Northern University, majoring in Marketing, Management and Entrepreneurship. She has worked in brand marketing for eight years and enjoys the creativity and flexibility of her job. Empathetic, ambitious, and uninhibited, Melissa loves being a wife, sister, daughter, dog mom, aunt, and friend. More than anything, she can’t wait to add Momma to that list!

Great parents for your child

Our Campsite Three years ago, we purchased our first camper – a 1997 pop-up. We spent almost every weekend at state parks or friends’ properties enjoying the simple blessings and beauty in life – good food, great friends, long hikes with Rocky, and nights by the fire. Since that time, we’ve also purchased a fishing boat and upgraded from the pop-up to a pull-behind camper with plenty of room to adventure and grow. We look forward to making many more camping adventures as our family grows!

Thank you again. As you are making an adoption plan for your child, we want to express our deepest gratitude for you. If chosen, we promise to raise your child in a home where they will always know love, stability, safety, laughter, and joy.

Sincerely yours,
Zach & Melissa
