Two-dad family hoping to expand our family through adoption again!

We are thinking of you and what a difficult series of decisions you face. We want to share something about ourselves that, as you consider adoption as one of your choices, might open the door to a conversation and ease your mind.

We are a solid couple--together fifteen years and married more than ten. We love each other and the home we've created for our children. We live in the suburbs of NYC with our son, Kiernan, who we adopted at birth six years ago. Adoption was relatively new to us but we've developed a wonderful relationship with Kiernan's birth mother. Kiernan has been a blessing in our lives, and we'd love to welcome another child into our family. Kiernan would love it, too. (And he'd be a great big brother!)

A little bit about us: Chris is a psychotherapist, and Hank works in educational publishing. We are lucky to have flexible work schedules that allow us to carve out time for family. Family and friends are at the center of our lives, along with our two dogs, Harvey and Hudson.

We hope this site gives you a sense of our lives, our values, and the loving home we want to provide for a child. As you consider an adoption plan as one of your options, know that we would be happy to answer any questions you may have for us. Please reach out at any time.

We'd love to hear from you.

Who We Are

We are a two-dad family blessed with a six-year-old son, Kiernan, who entered our hearts and brightened our world through an open adoption. We hope to share our love with another child.

Together 15 years (and married 10), our relationship is solid—based on love, affection, and mutual respect. As parents we love deeply, try to communicate clearly, and believe humor helps us navigate life’s challenges.

We are forever grateful to Kiernan’s birthmother and stay in touch with her over text and through visits during the year. Each situation is unique and we respect the difficult mix of feelings that can accompany a pregnant woman considering an adoption plan. Thank you for taking time to learn about our family. We would love to hear from you.
