#GWKThenAndNow: Jordan and Freddie with their son Joshua

This week's #GWKThenAndNow family are gay dads Jordan and Freddie with their son Joshua. Jordan met Freddie in 2002, and he proposed to him just four months later. Jordan said "When you know, you just know!" They welcomed their son, Joshua, in 2012, and before he had turned six-months-old, Joshua had dipped his toes in both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. This family packed up and moved from Washington to Texas last year, and are looking forward to their upcoming trip to visit family in Florida, as well as visiting Mickey Mouse!


February, 2002: The very first picture taken of Freddie and Jordan as a couple.

February 8th, 2003: The happy couple celebrate their wedding with all their friends and family. "We didn't need it to be legal, we just needed it for us." The legal part came later for Jordan and Freddie when Washington state legalized gay marriage. Jordan and Freddie made it official on their 10th anniversary.

November 21st, 2012: Jordan and Freddie met their son for the first time; Joshua was just 10 days old.

January, 2013: Joshua was 3-months-old when he accompanied Freddie and Jordan on a pre-planned trip to Hawaii to celebrate their 10 year anniversary.

2013: A beautiful professional family portrait from their first year together as a family, taken at Lincoln Park in West Seattle.

Disneyland, 2013: At 11 months, Daddy Freddie and Papa Jordan introduced Joshua to Disneyland! The family went for Gay Days and Halloween, and both Freddie and Jordan were happy for Joshua to see other families like their own.

Fall, 2013: Joshua's first-ever Pumpkin Patch!

Winter, 2014: After moving from Washington to Texas, Freddie and Jordan are happy that there is still one or two days a year that Joshua can wear his favorite winter Spiderman hat!

February, 2015: Visiting family in Florida, and a trip to Disney World with Grandma.

October, 2015: This year's Pumpkin Patch visit in Houston. We love this awesome family photo of Daddy Freddie, Papa Jordan and their cute son, Joshua.
