Seth & Chris

Upstate New York family hoping to grow

We’re Seth and Chris. Thanks for taking a look at our profile and learning a bit about us.

We’ve both been interested in adoption for a while, ever since we each read a book that introduced us to open adoption (The Kid, by Dan Savage). If you're interested in an open adoption, we're completely supportive--whether that means visits, phone and video calls, or pictures and letters. There's no single "right" way to do open adoption, so we're open to being flexible depending on what you're looking for.

We adopted our first son in 2017. Now that he's a bit older, we're ready to expand our family a little more.

We enjoy doing things together as a family that we enjoyed when we were kids ourselves, especially reading bedtime stories, going to the zoo and museums, and playing in the snow. We're excited for our son and his future sibling(s) to get to do all of these things together. Our family and friends are excited to be involved in our future child’s life, so he or she will also have grandparents, great grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins to play with and learn from.

We wish you the best and hope you find the right family for your child. If you would like to get to know us better, please send us a text or call us at 315-308-0827, or email us at

Who We Are

We’ve been together for over 14 years now. Seth grew up in rural Illinois, and Chris grew up in Connecticut. We met back in 2005 when we were both nerdy students at Iowa State University. Our shared interests in animals and video games brought us together, and in 2010 we got married on campus. After moving around a bit for temporary work, we were lucky to both land stable, long-term jobs together in upstate New York in 2012. Chris is a biology professor at a public college near Syracuse, and Seth is a veterinarian at a small animal clinic (for cats and dogs). In 2017 we adopted our first son, and now we are all ready to welcome another child to our family.

Adoption Diary

Happy new year

The last month has been a busy one: a road trip to Iowa to visit Seth’s family, a trip to Connecticut to see Chris’s family, our friend Nathan coming to visit us for New Years, and Chris traveling to Texas for a conference. We’ve had a lot of fun catching up with everyone, but it’s nice to be back home for some down time!

Holden’s first snowman

We got a good snowstorm earlier this week. We made the best of it by spending some time playing outside in the snow. Holden got to help build his first snowman, but of course his favorite part was throwing snowballs at his dads. Then the fun had to be cut short because of a potty emergency!

Thank You for Visiting Our Adoption Profile

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

We truly appreciate your kindness and strength and look forward to hearing from you.
