We first met almost 8 years ago. From the moment we went on our first date, we had an instant connection and bond for life, each knowing that we were one another’s soulmate. For the next few years, we enjoyed traveling together, and purchasing our first home in hopes that we would someday be able to make this a family home and grow as a couple. It was not long after our two-year anniversary, on Christmas day, that John surprised Brandon and proposed to him. Our families were extremely supportive and excited that they would each be getting a new member of their family.
We were married in 2016, surrounded by many friends and family, all radiating a tremendous amount of love and acceptance. We will soon be celebrating our 3-year wedding anniversary and continue to learn more about each other every single day.
We have talked about having children since the early stages of our relationship and are both very passionate about being parents. We have 4 beautiful nieces that we spoil and love unconditionally, but there is still that void of not having a child of our own. It has been overwhelming to see how supportive and excited our friends and family are about us adding to our adventurous and loving family.
We are also members of a “dads” group who get together once a month. The purpose of this group is to allow all of our children to grow up in a comfortable environment with other children who have important commonalities...having two dads and adoption. We look forward to continuing to be a part of this group so that our child can grow up with other friends’ children and similar families.
