Hi there,
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us. We admire your bravery in considering adoption as you plan for the future for you and your child. If you decide that it is best for your child to become a member of our family, we promise that he or she will always have our unconditional love and a warm place to call home.


We have been pre-screened as adoptive parents by Lutheran Child & Family Services (LCFS). Their comprehensive screening and education process took months to complete and was very thorough. They have screened us and verified that we have completed the following:

• Passed criminal background checks, including child abuse and neglect background checks
• Completed adoptive parent preparation classes
• Attended pre-adoption counseling sessions
• Vetted to be medically, financially and mentally stable
• Passed a comprehensive home visit with an licensed social worker who assured out home is a safe environment for a baby and meets state regulations.

Who We Are

We are Brian and Gordon -- a responsible, yet adventurous couple who cannot wait to be parents! We pay our bills on time, exercise, and always eat our vegetables. We love being goofy and making each other laugh by making funny voices and embarrassing each other in public. We have been married for almost three years and are so ready for our next chapter.

We have ALWAYS wanted children - from day one of meeting. It's not really the best first date conversation, but somehow it came out very early on. As gay men, we consciously have to choose to be parents and that has always been part of our life plans, even before we met.

We want to be the kind of parents who encourage continuously, love unconditionally, and celebrate whoever our children are; offering them support all along the way.

We are…

OPEN-MINDED AND NON-JUDGMENTAL

People describe us both as humble, warm, loving, and open-minded. We think of people as individuals who have their own unique stories, emotions, fears, and dreams. We accept people for who they are because they are in fact; unique.

As gay men (and Gordon being bi-racial), we are minorities and have faced discrimination throughout our lives. We think that’s why people tend to notice our openness.

If we get to meet you, we promise to be open-minded, warm and loving, no matter what your story is.


GRATEFUL FOR ALL OF OUR BLESSINGS

We have so many reasons to be grateful. We like to remind ourselves to notice all of the good things in our lives; especially our family and friends and all of the fun experiences we get to share together.

We both come from two-parent households. We share a strong community of friends and family. We are well-educated and are fortunate enough to have good jobs that we enjoy.

About Us

We met 7 years ago in San Francisco. Brian was living out there finishing up school and Gordon was in town from New York City visiting a friend. The spark was immediate and we recognized that we shared many interests and values, such as; spending time with family and friends, traveling, biking, exploring new restaurants and coffee shops, and being silly and having a good laugh.

Early on in dating (LONG distance San Francisco → New York!), we both shared that one day we wanted to get married and have kids. Marriage wasn’t legal everywhere for us yet but we were both hopeful that one day it would be! But we both knew that we certainly wanted kids.

After about a year and a half of long distance dating, Brian ended up moving to New York to be with Gordon. We lived there together for a couple years and enjoyed all that NYC had to offer. We built a strong group of friends together and eventually moved in and shared a home together. One day, while we were taking a bike ride together, Brian proposed to Gordon on the Williamsburg Bridge in the same spot where we took our first picture together four years previously. Gordon was in shock but gave a resounding “yes!” After, we headed back to our apartment where Gordon got another shock as 30 of our family and friends jumped out to surprise him!

Later that year, we left NYC to settle down in Chicago near Brian’s close-knit family. We wanted to get married and raise kids near them; surrounded by parents, siblings, cousins, aunts, uncles and dear friends. We got married surrounded by all of our loved ones and saved up to buy a condo together so that we could continue to work towards the dream of having a family.
