Family Type: Gay Couple
State we live in: Virginia

dear expectant mother

We want to acknowledge your courage and will be there to support you every step of the way throughout this journey if you choose us. Your consideration of us is deeply appreciated, and we wish to honor your courage and selfless act of considering adoption. You can rest assured that your baby will have a supporting, loving, and accepting home in which they may feel encouraged and empowered to be as courageous as you are.

Our love together knows no bounds, and we will extend all that love and support to our future child. We both share a healthy sense of adventure, which will be encouraged and passed on to our child through weekend hikes in the Shenandoah Valley, traveling to visit friends and family, and sharing new experiences in our local community, just to name a few. We cannot wait to share our passions for reading, music, and learning new things as we grow together as a family.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read our story and getting to know us! While it is difficult to fit our entire lives into this simple profile, we hope this provides you with a glimpse of who we are and why we would be loving, supportive fathers. We have a wonderful life together but are seeking the final piece to make our family complete. Hopefully our story connects with you and we can have a chance to find out if we are a good match for your little one!

We have a wonderful life together but are seeking the final piece to make our family complete.

About Us

We first met at a local bookstore while we were both attending college in Southwest Virginia. Following college, James continued his education, later graduating with a Master in Education, while Trenton began working for his local government. We eventually moved in together and have since gotten married, adopted pets, and bought a house! James is currently an instructional designer for adult education, and Trenton works in the criminal justice field of our local government. Our lives are filled with a perfect balance of adventure and quiet nights watching our favorite shows together. James loves to read and learn new things, while Trenton loves music and experiencing new foods. We are both fun-loving and down to earth and are so excited to share our interests and passions with our future child!

Our Home & Pets

We currently own a home in Virginia with a fenced-in backyard and beautiful patio where we spend many summer nights. We are surrounded by amazing parks where we love to visit for weekend walks and a local school district known for celebrating diversity and encouraging strong connections between families and their communities. In addition, our community is home to amazing science and children’s museums, among many other family-friendly adventures. We have a dog named Rhea who loves to play almost as much as she loves naps. We also have two cats, Dany and Brienne, who love to cuddle. Our home is filled with warmth, love, and laughter that will only be made complete by our future child!

Our Extended Family

You've heard the phrase, “It takes a village to raise a child.” Our “village,” both near and far, is eagerly awaiting the opportunity to extend love, care, and support to our child. We have a wonderful family, both by birth and chosen, that deeply cares for and supports us in every way. Both sets of parents live relatively close to us and often gather for family dinners and barbecues. James has two siblings, and Trenton has two brothers, all of whom are raising families of their own, so our future child will have plenty of aunts, uncles, and cousins to learn from, play with, and grow alongside.

In addition to immediate family, we also deeply value our extended and chosen family. A typical Thanksgiving involves a “friends-giving” as well as a themed Thanksgiving every year with James’s extended family. Christmas typically involves a wonderful dinner at Trenton’s grandparents with his parents and extended family. We greatly appreciate these traditions and are so excited to continue them as well as create some new ones as we begin our own family.

What Led Us To Adoption

Family is incredibly important to us, and we consider ourselves fortunate to be surrounded by such a supportive “village” of family and friends. Both of us have envisioned ourselves as parents for as long as we have been together. After witnessing family and friends being blessed by their adoption journeys, we agreed this would be the right choice for us by providing a loving, caring, and empowering home for our future child. We can't wait to create a family of our own!
