Joseph & Justin

Family Type: Gay
State we live in: Connecticut

dear expectant mother

We are so grateful you would consider us to raise your baby. If you were to choose us, you would bless our lives in a way we have been dreaming of for a very long time. We are ready to raise a child, and we feel blessed that you would consider us as a potential home for your child.

We will devote ourselves to ensuring that your baby has every opportunity in life. We can’t wait to share our traditions with your baby, from tamale making with Joseph’s family in California at Christmas to relaxing at Justin’s family’s beach house in North Carolina in the summer, hiking in the Appalachians, and enjoying the beauty of all four seasons at our home in Connecticut. We love music (Justin was a music major in college, and Joseph is an opera buff!) and will raise your baby in a house filled with music!

We also believe education is extremely important and will do everything we can to make sure your baby has the very best education. But the most important thing is love, and we, our family, and our community will unconditionally love your baby forever.

If you were to choose us, you would bless our lives in a way we have been dreaming of for a very long time.

About Us

We met when we were both in law school and fell in love fast. We have been blessed with each other’s love and friendship for almost 13 years now, six of them married. We support one another and believe marriage means we owe each other unconditional love and support forever. We’re both lawyers who live in Connecticut and work in New York City—Joseph has his own law firm, and Justin works at a large international law firm. We enjoy our work, but family is the most important thing to us, and we spend as much time as possible with each other and our families. We are fortunate to regularly travel to see our families—Joseph’s in Los Angeles and Justin’s in South Carolina.

Our Home & Pets

We live in a rural and secluded community in a beautiful part of Connecticut at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. Our home sits on six acres of forest and includes a beautiful brook, blueberry bushes, fruit trees, and an herb garden. We love to relax at home on our screened-in porch and patio with our sweet little dog, Brennan. We both work in Manhattan, so when your baby is older, he or she will also enjoy the sights and cultural experiences we love in New York City.

Our Extended Family

Justin grew up in South Carolina, and most of his family lives there. We visit South Carolina several times a year to see Justin’s mom, dad, sister, brother-in-law, aunts, uncles, and grandmothers. Justin’s family also loves to come to see us in Connecticut, and we are waiting for a visit from Justin’s two-year-old nephew! We love going to South Carolina and enjoying lots of homemade Southern food with Justin’s family.

Joseph grew up in Los Angeles, where his mom, dad, sister, brother-in-law, niece, and many aunts, uncles, and cousins live. We love visiting Joseph’s family, especially at Christmas, when we get to enjoy homemade tamales and other Mexican holiday traditions. We also like to travel with Joseph’s mom, who visits us several times a year and who is excited to come live with us for a while in Connecticut to help us welcome your baby to our home.

What Led Us To Adoption

We very much want to expand our family and raise a child, and adoption gives us hope we will one day be able to do that. Recently, some of our very best friends adopted a baby girl, and we have seen how happy they are. We are hopeful that one day soon we will also be able to welcome a child into our own home and family. We have believed for a very long time that adoption is the best path for us, and if we are fortunate enough to adopt, we will give everything we have to make sure our child is happy and healthy.
