Dear Expectant Mother,

We are Clifton and Chad! It's lovely to "meet" you!

Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. We greatly admire your bravery in considering adoption for your baby, and we believe that placing a child for adoption is the greatest sacrifice a parent could make. We look forward to getting to know YOU better and offer you all the love and support as you decide on the best future for your baby.

We are incredibly excited and ready to be dads! We hope after learning about us you will be able to see just how much love we have to give. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for considering us.

Who We Are

We met online through in 2008, while we were both living in New York City. On our first date, initially meant to be casual, we sat and chatted for five hours! It snowed softly on us as we headed out to take different subway trains home, both with full hearts. From the beginning, it was clear that we were very similar in our rural upbringings but quite different though complimentary in personality (introvert meets extrovert!). That dynamic has kept our relationship very strong and interesting over the years. We truly do complete one another!

We moved to Atlanta in 2009, and Chad proposed in 2012 while we decorated our Christmas tree. Clifton cried while holding a string of lights (typical)! We were married in 2013 on the fifth anniversary of first date, and we celebrated on the same two stools where we met exactly five years before.

We've been incredibly blessed in our lives so far, but something has felt missing for a while now. We realized it was a baby and our longing to become dads. We admire our fathers and appreciate all they have done for us. We now feel incredibly excited and ready to be fathers.

Adoption Diary

13 Years Together, 8 Years Married!

13 years together. 8 years married.
We fit. We have from the start. We have been through very high highs and very low lows as a team. We have reveled in the small things of life and celebrated the big ones. We’ve traveled the world but adore our sofa time. We’re eager for more. And, yes, now we long for a child with whom we can share the joy.
To us, this is living the dream. We can’t imagine a better one. Love makes a family.

Looking back!

Wow! A year ago life was so very different. What pandemic? And ... we thought we only wanted to adopt a boy. (No longer true!) We unpacked tons of gorgeous hand me down outfits from our sister/sister in law. We decorated a nursery. We made a registry. We thought surely we’d match (permanently) in 2020. But ... life has a way of taking the wheel for itself and making detours and u-turns. Here we are a year later, pushing forward with continued hope to go from we to three in 2021.
