How We Met:  We met each other at a burrito shop in Boston, where we were introduced by a common friend who lived there. After some amazing adventures together, including a romantic weekend trip to Puerto Vallarta, David asked Ben to marry him on the top deck of a Caribbean cruise ship. During our time together, we have traveled the world and seen many amazing places, but we have found our happy place here in Florida.

Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other:  Ben is kind, genuine, outgoing and he has a great sense of humor. He truly enjoys meeting and getting to know new people, he loves to teach and mentor, and he is always the first to lend a helping hand. David is bright, organized and extremely creative. David has a heart of gold and is always coming up with creative ideas at work and fun things to do outside of work. We are both very committed to our marriage and family, and have learned that having a sense of humor, flexibility and willingness to try new things is the key to a fulfilling life.    

Our Hobbies and Interests:  We are very active people. In addition to exercising on a regular basis, we love to travel, explore new places and experience new adventures. We are new to Florida, so we have spent a lot of time exploring all it has to offer with each other and our dog, Daisy. We also enjoy spending quiet time taking Daisy on long walks or beach adventures, watching our favorite shows on Netflix, hosting dinners with friends and just sitting down and talking to each other.

Why We Want to Adopt:  We have always wanted to have children, and we are at a fantastic place in our lives to share all of our experiences and joy through adoption because we cannot have our own child. David has the flexibility to work from home, and Ben now has flexibility in his job to enjoy all of the amazing moments in our child’s life.
