Our story

Hi, we're Jackson & Ryan Tropp. We met in 2017 in Huntington Beach, California. Ryan was living there at the time and Jackson was on a trip with his best friend from High School. After our first date at Dukes Bar & Restaurant, we started spending a lot of time together, which was tough since Jackson lived over an hour away. So we did the sensible thing; We moved in together. We adopted a sweet puppy from the animal shelter and named him Woody Howlson (he looks a bit like Woody Harrelson.) Our intimate wedding in February of 2020 was right before the Pandemic. And since then, we have been remodeling our home and remaining patient and optimistic throughout our journey to adopt a baby and grow our family. One of our favorite things to do as a couple is get creative, so as we wait to match with an expecting Mother, we hope that Troppical will be a safe space that will keep us busy and will ultimately help other LGBTQ families just like us!
