Jeff & Ammon

Family Type: Gay Couple
State we live in: Utah

dear expectant mother

Truthfully, we will never pretend to understand how a decision like this feels to you because we could never be in the same situation as a gay couple. We can only imagine what you’re feeling and do our best to provide comfort in your decision.

We have dreamed of being fathers our whole lives. Ammon remembers when he came out to his family at age 16. His younger sister cried and told him she didn’t care that he was gay, but she always knew he would be a father, and she didnt want that to change. Finding a partner who longs for a family with the same amount of passion was one of the first connection points we made as a couple. Watching one another play and interact with the kids in our families is a clear way to see the joy children bring to both of us.

We promise to give everything we have to the child we are lucky enough to love, provide for, and raise. We promise to remind one another that when things get hard, it's not about us anymore; we have a new priority. Lastly and most importantly, we promise unconditional love will surround this child their entire life.

Thank you for considering us.

About Us

We like to consider ourselves a pretty formidable team. We are both ambitious but not competitive with one another; the success of one is viewed as a win for the team. Our social personalities couldn't be more different, but therein lies the secret to our balanced, growing love. Ammon, the natural extrovert, stands on stages of all sizes for work, educating and inspiring people in the beauty industry to believe they have a greater impact than they realize. Jeff, a certified accountant, prefers to keep his thoughts and emotions to himself, the steady, grounding rock to Ammon’s bright, creative imagination. The gym is our mental health zone, our place to connect with one another, and our stress reliever when life gets intense. We met on a fitness retreat in Costa Rica, so staying physically active has always been part of our DNA as a couple.

Our Home & Pets

We recently relocated to a suburban neighborhood in Utah. Our warm and inviting home is located in a family-friendly, newly developed neighborhood with parks, a recreation center, schools, and world-class trails all within walking distance. Relocating also meant upgrading our space, which has proved to be a large playground for our two bengal cats, who are ready to love a new addition to our home.

Our Extended Family

Ammon is the fifth of seven children, and each of his siblings are married with families of their own, most of whom live in Utah. Ammon’s parents, who also still live in Utah, host weekly family dinners that gather cousins and extended family on a regular basis, keeping them close.

Jeff is the second of three children and is still very close with his older brother and younger sister in spite of living far apart. Similar to Ammon, Jeff’s family is very close and fortunate to have traditions that keep them in contact and reunited a couple times per year.

The best surprise came by way of a Mother’s Day announcement this year, when Ammon’s youngest sister (and best friend) told the family she and her husband had accidentally become pregnant. An unexpected fourth child for them brought about a new level of excitement at the timing that could potentially fit with the adoption plans we have been dreaming about.

What Led Us To Adoption

Since we met, we have spoken without hesitation about our longstanding desire to be fathers. Ammon personally has seven adopted cousins who were part of his childhood. Whether it was his cousin from Korea or his cousin’s adopted son from Nigeria, the adopted members of his family have always felt like they were exactly where they belonged, as intended members of our family. Because of the families we both came from, we know adoption is the right course for us.
