What Led Us To Adoption
You may be wondering why we chose adoption as the path we wanted to take to grow our family. We both always wanted a family of our own, and being gay men, we cannot create a family the conventional way. We did attempt to do the shared parenting route with a lesbian couple who are friends of ours, but unfortunately we were not successful. We ended up deciding to adopt after talking with one of our neighbors, who was a surrogate for a gay couple in New Zealand. Michael met his biological father when he was 25 and discovered he had siblings and family who were eager to know him. It has been a blessing to get to know each of them. We have so much support from our friends and family to be the best parents possible.
