Welcome! We are Steve and John and we appreciate you taking some time to learn more about us. We know you have a very important decision in front of you, and we sincerely thank you for considering us as adoptive parents. We hope that our story shows the love we have for one another, our family, and friends, and hopefully a child one day.
We met online in June 2015 and had our first date on June 26. And no, June 26 is not a national holiday, but it just so happened to be the same date the United States Supreme Court ruled in favor of gay marriage – ironic, or what? Fast forward five years, and we are fortunate that the Supreme Court made that decision as we were able to get married in 2020. Thank you, Coronavirus, for throwing a hitch into what we thought would be a big dance party with all of our family and friends. Instead we opted for the safer, but more intimate ceremony, surrounded by our immediate family which turned out to be just as beautiful and fun.
We both knew very early on that building a family of our own one day would be important. It was something we often talked about. We are excited to be at the point in our lives to begin this next chapter. Raising a child and starting our own family is an opportunity we cannot wait to explore.
