The Start Of It All
Gregg and Paul met back in 2012, and it wasn’t long before the pair moved in with one another. The couple decided they wanted to start a family, but surrogacy was going to cost thousands of dollars. They decided to save money and help change another child’s life. There was only one thing to do: adopt.
An Intensive Course
The pair flew to Rhode Island where they were in for three days of intensive training as Gregg and Paul learned everything they needed to become foster parents. Here, they learned all about the laws and rules before their house was cleared through inspections. Finally, they were ready for a child.
Given A Choice
Gregg and Paul were amazed when the agency lined them up with five children all said to be the perfect fit for their family. However, they all had their own stories, and the couple would have to choose which one they wanted to welcome into their lives. One stood out more than the others. Gavin.
The Perfect Fit
Although Gavin was said to be the most difficult of the children, Gregg and Paul knew they needed to welcome him in as their own. Gavin had been diagnosed with PTSD, ODD, and ADHD, but none of that mattered. Gregg and Paul just wanted to give the little one another chance at life.
A New Life
The two dads arrived to collect Gavin with unique Disney-themed t-shirts to go around. Why? The pair wanted it to be a fun event and had a plan for their new family. It turned out the three were about to head off to Disney straight after and thought this would be the perfect way to start their new lives together.
Adoption pictures often showcase a range of emotions, and these heartwarming photos of two dads adopting their son prove that sometimes, things are simply meant to be.
