Ryan and Scott
We cannot begin to understand your thoughts and feelings as you choose to create your adoption plan, but rather hope to provide you with some ease during this selfless process. We would like you to know that we would respect an open line of communication with you including letters, pictures, and visits; but understand that you may choose confidentiality as well. No matter what your openness decision is at this time, please know that your child will always know how grateful we are for the decision you have made.

Connecting With Us:
Our story begins eleven years ago when we were introduced to each other by mutual friends. Since then, we have traveled down many roads together as a couple and have grown both personally and professionally by each other’s side leading to our marriage at the end of May, 2016. Through our journey together we have learned not only that we work best together as a team, but that we balance each other out perfectly. Scott’s last minute trips to the camper or fun days around the city are possible because of Ryan’s ability to quickly create order and pull it all together. Both of us have dreamed of growing our family and are waiting patiently to make that dream to come true. Five years ago, we were blessed with the gift of a child through an open adoption and three years later a second adoption of a biological sibling. Now, we are looking forward to the blessing of a third child and sibling for our son’s Carter and Zayvon. We have one dog Luca, who both enjoys having fun, playing around, and mostly just cuddling on the couch. She has been great with Carter and Zayvon to help learn the patience needed to understand and love how curious a new sibling could be. Our home, located in Butler, has plenty of yard to play in, is close to local playgrounds and parks, and is within a great school district. Together we look forward to filling our home with the laughter and joy that another child and brother or sister to Carter will bring.
About Ryan: Ryan is a caring, compassionate, and nurturing person who is always looking out for those around him. Growing up in the North Hills area, Ryan enjoyed being with his friends doing everything from riding around on their bikes to playing soccer in the local field. When Ryan was not with his friends he enjoyed spending time with his family doing anything from playing games in the yard to enjoying s’mores around a campfire. Today, Ryan still enjoys being outside working in the yard, playing with the dogs, and gathering with family and friends for dinner (of course, he continues to enjoy s’mores around the campfire when the weather cooperates). In addition, Ryan loves the joy of being a father and is excited about continuing to build the family through adoption.
About Scott: Scott is a fun loving and adventurous individual who loves to try new things. Scott grew up in Punxsutawney, PA where he enjoyed riding horses, learning about wildlife, and spending a lot of time with his family. Scott cherishes memories of sled riding in the winter and swimming in the summer with his older brother and sister. Scott and his family also spent many of their summer days at the family cabin in Tionesta, PA enjoying the outdoors with friends and family. Today, Scott still enjoys big family get-togethers on a regular basis and is looking forward to continuing these with his growing family. Today, he enjoys going to shows at the Benedum Center as well as hockey games at the Consol Energy Center, but most of all walking through the city during light up night with Ryan. Scott is very excited to share these activities as we continue to expand our family through the adoption process.
Our Family: Both of our parents are truly excited to welcome the addition of another grandchild into the family. Ryan’s sister Jenna, and Scott’s sister Heather, are anxiously awaiting their opportunity to expand their duties as aunt to another niece or nephew. Scott’s brother Stuart, wife Tia, and Carter’s cousins Brayden and Harper cannot wait to share their time and toys with the newest addition to our family. In addition to our immediate families, our extended families are very excited for us to be able to share our growing family with each of them.
Your Baby’s Future: Our future plan is to create a family that is filled with fun, love, understanding, patience, and bright futures. As a same sex couple we have learned that acceptance, knowledge, hard work, and love are key family values that we hope to instill in our children. With that being said, we look forward to expanding our loving and supportive home for our children to have the best possible opportunities in life. We will make sure that we offer every ounce of love and support available to create well-rounded successful individuals who understand that they have so many people who love them and want the best for their future. We are excited about taking our children to see the animals at the zoo, the fireworks downtown during light up night, and cheering on the Pittsburgh Penguins with family in our living room or in person at the Consol Energy Center. Decorating for holidays, attending school functions, planning for family vacations and weekend trips in our camper are all things that we are looking forward to enjoying with our new adoptive family.
