A same-sex couple in Silver Spring plans another Facebook adoption

Posted: Updated:
SILVER SPRING, Md. -

Coincidentally, both dads are named Brad.

Brad Benton and Brad Letson turned to social media to adopt a son, when they became frustrated with the long wait of a traditional adoption.

After months of trying to find a child through an agency, starting back in January of 2009, they eventually placed an ad on Facebook.

Six hours later, they got a response from a woman named Sesa.

The Brads say Sesa was pregnant and not sure about what to do. Months later, after staying in touch and talking online, they all clicked.

The Brads were in the hospital operating room when Kyler was born. Kyler is now almost 3.

This Fathers Day his two dads are newly engaged and planning to be married in November.

They are also looking to adopt again, and have placed a new ad in Facebook.

They have a website, the2Brads.com.
