Congratulations to these gay dads on the latest additions to their family!
Congratulations to dads Brian and Jeff on the adoption of their son Israel!
On February 15, 2017, the adoption of Israel (Izzy) was finalized and Brian (above, left), Jeff (above, right) officially became dads to their son. This Grand Rapids family are now working on finalizing the adoption of their second son, Andrè. They cannot thank the Lutheran Social Services of Michigan and D.A. Blodgett – St. John’s enough for being amazing partners through the process.
Brian and Jeff: “Our adoption day was an amazing day filled with family and friends and overwhelming joy for all three of us. Our journey actually began by hosting exchange students, we decided we loved being dads but didn’t want to have babies. We immediately looked at foster kids as an option. Our boys (another adoption is in the works) came from a large group home in Grand Rapids, and both wanted to be part of a healthy family.”
Thank you for sharing your exciting news with us, Brian and Jeff!
