Fun-loving, two dad family from Salt Lake City hoping to expand our family of three through adoption again

Hi,

We're grateful to be among the parents you're considering for placement of your baby. We admire and appreciate how much courage it takes for you to consider an adoption plan. We are currently parents to a little girl, Sydney, who we adopted in 2018 and would love to expand our family through another adoption.

Starting and growing our family through adoption has always been our first choice. We adopted Sydney through a private, open adoption in 2018. Sydney's birth mom attends her birthday parties and follows her childhood through our social media handles. We would love to again have an open adoption with open communication and annual visits but would respect your wishes and desires.

Being a same-sex couple, we know very well that love is what makes a family. As parents, we are dedicated to having our home be a place where everyone can be and become the best version of themselves. Your child will always know their adoption story and where they came from.

Thank you for taking the time to get to know our family, and we hope to get to know you too.

Who We Are

We first met in 2009 at the Salt Lake County Democratic Party Convention, shortly after Barack Obama's first win. Jason was on the board of the Young Democrats of Utah and Brian was (somewhat begrudgingly) helping a local candidate run for office. We quickly became close friends, but we didn't begin dating until 2010.

Once we were dating, we knew we wanted to be together forever. We spent several years seeing each other practically every day. We participated in numerous road races together -- and would eventually train for and run two marathons. Together, we hosted game nights, movie nights, and Oscar parties with friends and family. We're homebodies at heart and love bringing people we love together to celebrate big and small occasions.

We eventually bought our first house and moved in together in 2014. Marriage equality wasn't legal in Utah, but we knew we were in this for the long haul. In 2015, Brian proposed to Jason on the Tower of Terror at Walt Disney World, surrounded by more than 30 friends and family from around the United States. We married a year later in 2016.

We welcomed our daughter, Sydney, on our second wedding anniversary (June 4, 2018). Sydney's birth mother found us through a mutual friend six months earlier and we adopted her through private adoption. Nothing has brought us more joy than the opportunity to be parents.
