Gregory Maguire and Andy Newman got married in 2004, just after same-sex marriage was legalized in Massachusetts. Gregory, an author, and Andy, an artist, met at an art show. Gregory says he was taken with one of Andy's paintings immediately. "There was a painting of a person of great compassion circling and enfolding someone who needed help," he says. "I fell in love with Andy about two weeks after I fell in love with his painting."
As soon as their relationship got serious, they say they knew they wanted to be fathers. Together, Gregory and Andy adopted three children—Luke and Alex from Cambodia and Helen from Guatemala. Meet the Maguire-Newman family
