Two-Dad Family Hoping to Expand Our Family Through Adoption Again

Adoption can be beautiful--it has been for our family--but we also realize it involves difficult decisions. We are sensitive to the mixed feelings of someone who is pregnant and considering an adoption plan. We want to share something about ourselves that 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.

Adoption Diary

California Dreaming

Hank grew up on the west coast and we visited our family there after the holidays.  We drove from San Francisco down to LA and then out to Palm Springs.  Here’s a picture along the way.  We had fun watching the dogs playing on the beach (and it made us miss our dogs, Harvey and Hudson, who were home in NY!).

Rocking’ Around The Christmas Tree

Such a sweet time of year.  We hosted twenty of our family members on Christmas Eve and it felt so good to be together in person this year.  We ate too much and laughed a lot.  After our guests went home, Kiernan wrote a letter to Santa and left food for his reindeer. In the morning, Kiernan ran down the steps and was excited to see what was underneath the tree.  We have so much to be thankful for and we’d love to be able to share with another child.

Thank You for Visiting Our Adoption Profile

We want to thank you for considering us as adoptive parents for your child.
