Update – June 2010

Welcome to The Daddy Diaries!  We began this blog as an effort to chronicle our lives as prospective and then new parents.  Our hope was to both keep our families involved (since they live out of state) and to be able to show our children what life was like for us as a family starting out.  It has since become much more than that.  Because we have explored different means to become parents—foster care and adoption—we have begun to amass a lot of information which we hope will help anyone else starting down either of these two paths.  Mostly though, this has become an outlet, to say the things that need to be said about who we are, what we are going through, and how much we both love to be parents.

Welcome to The Daddy Diaries! We are glad you decided to stop by. Hopefully, you’ll visit this blog often and join us on our journey to Daddyhood.

For those who don’t know us…We are Juan and Darrow, living in the mid-Atlantic area and “daddies” to three loveable, fun dogs – Mika, Milo and Rocky. We have just begun the adoption process (no, not a dog this time) and thought a blog would be a great way to share our adoption experiences with family, friends and others interested in the adoption process.

We’re excited about the opportunity to be fathers together. There’s a lot of love between us, and we want to share that love with a child in need. Hopefully, we won’t have to wait too long for Daddyhood to happen. In the meantime, feel free to explore The Daddy Diaries. Comments and questions are welcome!
