Dear expectant parents:
We’re grateful to be among the parents you’re considering for placement of your baby. We admire the courage it takes for you to consider an adoption plan. We are currently dads to a little girl, Sydney, who we adopted in 2018 and would love to expand our family through another adoption.
We met in 2009. Once we were dating, we knew we wanted to be together forever. We spent several years seeing each other practically every day. We participated in numerous road races together — and would eventually train for and run two marathons. Together, we hosted game nights, movie nights, and Oscar parties with friends and family. And in between those parties, you can often find us working on home projects. We enjoy using the skills we have and making our home our own. We’re homebodies at heart and love bringing people we love together to celebrate big and small occasions.
We eventually bought our first house and moved in together in 2014. Marriage equality wasn’t legal in Utah, but we knew we were in this for the long haul. In 2015, Brian proposed to Jason on the Tower of Terror at Walt Disney World, surrounded by more than 30 friends and family from around the United States. We married a year later in 2016.
We welcomed our daughter, Sydney, on our second wedding anniversary (June 4, 2018). Sydney’s birth mother found us through a mutual friend six months earlier and we adopted her through private adoption. Nothing has brought us more joy than the opportunity to be parents.
Starting and growing our family through adoption has always our first choice. Your child will always know their family story and where they came from. We hope to again have an open adoption with open communication and annual visits but would respect your wishes and desires. Thank you for taking the time to get to know our family, and we hope to get to know you too.
