Introducing Us... Again


Thanks to the amazing work of our designer, Adam, at Creative & Sons, our portfolio is finally completed. And just think, we only made him go through 23 revisions (or was it 24?!?)

Click on the link and you can download a copy for yourself.

We hope you all enjoy it as much as we enjoyed putting it together! If you don't like the photo of you in the portfolio - Blame Adam. If your photo didn't make it into the portfolio, also Blame Adam. That's what you get when you hire a professional ~ someone who refuses your sugesstions because of creative differences. That's not always a bad thing. Smile Adam!!
P.S. Thanks to Cathy and Kyle for taking 100+ photos in order to get our cover shot. I just couldn't smile for the life of me. The weekend was great... several hours of Wii track and field, tons of Taco Bell (Cathy, what were we thinking?), and ended with us designing their nursery. Hahahhaha. Love you both!

Gay N.Y. pair fight adoption-service bias

A gay couple who were barred from posting their profile at an online adoption service filed discrimination complaint Tuesday with the New York State attorney general.

Rosario Gennaro and Alexander Gardner of New York City claim the Arizona-based Adoption Profiles LLC and Adoption Media LLC violate New York State antidiscrimination laws. The companies' website,, allows only opposite-sex couples to register.

It is not the first time a gay couple has lodged a complaint against the service. Last year, it settled out of court a lawsuit brought by a San Jose, Calif., couple, Michael and Rich Butler, who alleged the companies violated California anti-discrimination law.

The companies argued that because they are based in Arizona and do business on the Internet, they did not have to comply with California law. A federal court judge in San Francisco rejected the argument and ruled that the lawsuit could proceed.

The companies have since ceased doing business in California, said Flor Bermudez, a staff attorney for Lambda Legal, which is handling the case.

"They can't come into New York and effectively hang a sign on the door saying 'Gay couples need not apply,'" Bermudez said. The Associated Press reported that the companies had not yet responded to requests for comment.
