When Katie and Luis Zamot started the adoption process for their youngest son, Shepherd, they found it was rife with agency fees and travel costs. To supplement their income, they started making and selling soy-based candles from their living room in 2020. Their company, Milkglass Market, has since expanded, with room sprays, hand washes, party boxes and baby products designed by Katie and Luis. The couple works only with fair-trade manufacturers and quality materials, like natural rubber for the pacifiers and bamboo textiles for swaddles that get softer with time. BPA-free silicone plates, bowls, bibs, utensils and cups in periwinkle, oatmeal and rose hues, are dishwasher-safe and sturdy by design.

The couple hosts weeklong social media fundraisers, where 20 percent of sales go to prospective adopters, and they allocate 10 percent of profits to an annual grant, distributed on Shepherd’s birthday, to a family’s adoption agency or lawyer. Local businesses contribute through tax-deductible donations to the Zamots’ nonprofit. Since launching, Milkglass Market has given more than $25,000 to families seeking to adopt, bringing children closer to finding their forever families.
