Chad & David

Happy gay couple hoping to welcome a child into our loving and supportive home.

Hello! We’re David and Chad, and we’re thrilled you want to know more about us. We know that making an adoption plan is a difficult and complex decision, and we want to be supportive in any way we can.

We live in a village outside of Buffalo, New York, along with our dog, cats and chickens. We like being outdoors, traveling, and cooking. We've been together for six years, and married for four. Although our home is already full of love (and pets!), we are ready for this next step: sharing this love by expanding our family through adoption.

Why are we adopting? It’s hard to put into words the feeling you have when you know something is right, but that’s exactly how we feel about fatherhood. We’re looking for a child to care for, to teach, and to love forever.

We are interested in either a closed or open adoption, and are willing to travel anywhere within the United States. Please contact us with any questions you may have, or if you'd like to know more!

Who We Are

We met in April 2015 after being set up by two of our family members who were coworkers and had decided we’d make a great couple. Our first date was a hike in a beautiful wildlife preserve and included David’s dog, Stanley. The next stop was a coffee house, and then - because Stanley had rolled in something gross on the hike - onto a dog wash. It’s a good sign when a first date lasts six hours (even with a smelly dog!). We both immediately knew we’d found someone special.

We spent the next year growing closer and then, 364 days after that first date, David proposed to Chad on a trip to New Orleans. We got married the next summer in a beautiful outdoor ceremony surrounded by family and friends, and have been going strong ever since.

For several years we lived in Portland, Maine, but once we chose to start growing our family, we decided that it would be best to move back home. For our future child, Buffalo is filled with grandparents and many supportive aunts and uncles. Also, we have stayed close with many of our high school friends, who have been in our lives for 15 or more years, meaning this child will have just as many unofficial “aunts” and “uncles,” as well. For us, some of our fondest childhood memories were running around with our cousins. Luckily, we both have siblings nearby who are raising young children of their own as well, so we can look forward to a child getting to do the same!

What matters most to us? We are hoping for the opportunity to raise a child of our own in a happy, loving household, and make sure he or she is supported, cared for, and able to create a lifetime of happy family memories. Whether it's family game nights, baking cookies together, or going on hikes, we can't wait be dads.

Adoption Diary

Family vacation

Last week we took a family vacation with Chad’s mom, brother and his wife and 3 kids.  We rented a lake house and had tons of fun fishing with the kids, swimming, going on hikes, playing board games, paddling around and sitting by the bonfire.  We even got away to do a little wine tasting with Chad’s mom!  It was great spending so much family time together and we definitely want to make this an annual trip.

Birthday trip to DC

Now that we’re both vaccinated, we have been itching to travel again!
Since David’s sister lives in DC and it was his birthday, we decided to go down for a visit and enjoy their slightly warmer weather. We had a great time visiting all the monuments and eating at some great restaurants.  Although we missed the cherry blossoms this year, the azalea bushes were in full bloom and were maybe even prettier than the cherry blossoms. We loved exploring, but I think our favorite things we did were just hanging out with David’s sister and her boyfriend, catching up and playing board games.  It was so nice to get out again and we can’t wait for summer!
