At a church near my parents home, I surprised Sueann with a small ceremony to renew our vows. For our 10 year anniversary we recommitted to the chaos and the beauty of marriage. Those vows hit different 10 years in. Sickness and health - yeah, we’ve seen those. Richer or poorer - yes, we know that too. Each commitment is filled, not with the whimsy of romance… But with the knowledge of the sacrifice and the joy of the life that follows. Love you @FoCho. I choose you then, now and forever. Rich or poor. Sick or healthy. War or peace. I’m yours.
SAVE THAT DATE
Someone at a store leaned down and asked Yumi: “Are you a princess?” On the way home she said: “Dad, I don’t want to be a princess, I want to be a Queen.”

This is lil bro. Since he was 1 day old. On the left is our mom. On the right is his bio mom. Family is thicker than blood, stronger than steel and more important than anything else. #familyiseverything
One more for the Russians. Here’s to living 100 more years with you. You won’t look a day over 90.

I still drive my car with the windows down so I can hear people playing your music.

THANK YOU... To everyone to joined us for our @AdoptTogether Summer Soiree. It was one of my favorites events yet. So grateful for our volunteers, our events team and every single donor that makes it possible for families around the country to adopt and bring their kids home. What a day. Can’t wait for Baby Ball... - October 12th - Los Angeles -
Ain’t no party like a Jonas party... The Chasing Happiness doc is special. Love you guys.
The way-shower. Here’s to the Marathon. Congrats on your second most important B. • • 🎨 @nikkolas_smith
Having daughters makes me always aware of the places in the world we need to make safer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Momma is out wine tasting in Santa Barbara, so I got these 3 ladies to myself all weekend. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So grateful for my family.
When we got to set - Nip asked me... “Big Hank, what you doing with that camera?” I told him... “Taking photos of a king.” I climbed up a light post to get this shot. Nip looked up and saw me 20 feet in the air looking like a paparazzi...that’s why he’s laughing at me hanging on for dear life and looking ridiculous. But I got a pic of the king with a big smile on his face.

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to you @focho. You are the best baby momma a guy could ask for. You breathe conscious parenting, you want the very best for our girls and you are selflessly mothering two of the most amazing kids alive. WE LOVE YOU!
MOMMA!!! 36 foster kids. 11 of us kids. You are the most selfless person alive. You are the best mom in the world. Thank you for loving us, teaching us, healing us and sometimes cussing at us. You are SAINT ANNE THE WONDERFUL! LOVE YOU!!!
Happy Born Day Cora. Seven years of life. Seven years of joy. I thank God every day that I get to be your dad. Every day with you is a gift. Now, I’d like to slow everything down and keep you here forever. HBD ♥️.
Yesterday I snuck into a brunch full of kings and queens. #RocNationBrunch

LadyWife is feeling the new year. Here we go...
What a WEDDING! I’m late to post this but THANK YOU @priyankachopra and @nickjonas for allowing us to be a part of your insanely beautiful and wildly amazing wedding. We loved celebrating with you and experiencing the culture of India. The country, the people, the food and the celebration took our breath away. Here’s to 100 years of happieness for you both.
• T H I R T Y • S E V E N • So grateful for another year of life. I feel keenly aware of my mortality and what a gift it is to be human - grateful for every moment of being alive. I’m ever so thankful for my family, friends and the chance to work with amazing people every day. Here’s to another year of love, evolution and doing everything in my power to create the best life for these 3 ladies.
A VERY MERRIEST CHRISTMAS From our fam to yours. 🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄
Happy #WorldAdoptionDay. This is my grandfather. He was adopted when he was 1. My parents adopted 8 kids. My dad an I started @adopttogether which has helped almost 5,000 families adopt. In 2014, a small group of us decided to create an international day to celebrate families who had been touched by adoption. And today, people from over 50 countries will post to celebrate family and adoption and the lives who have been touched by birth mothers and adoptive parents and amazing kids. All of that to say... Pauline made a brave choice to allowe Lee and Louise to adopt my grandfather in the 1920’s, and look at what that started. We just never know how our choices will change our small parts of the world in big ways. Here’s to family...and the smiles on hands all over the world today.
About last night... I was blown away by everyone who came out to support the work of @adopttogether. Our #BabyBall was the best yet. So many thank yous to my amazing wife @focho who has carried the torch fearlessly for the last 2 years. So grateful to so many who made last night possible. Here’s to a #FamilyForEveryChild #WorldAdoptionDay
Guy: “What’s your plan today?” Me: “TJ’s and chill with my team.”
Friends! So grateful for @curtisstone @vanessalachey and @lindsayjprice for having us on tonight’s episode of #TopChefJr. They told the story of @adopttogether beautifully through the lenses of family and food. Sue and I are on camera for 3 seconds so PLEASE DON’T BLINK! Tonight 6p/5c. #FamilyIsEverything
F O U R ! ! ! This kids melts me.
H A P P Y B I R T H D A Y Y U M I ! Four years of madness, mayhem and pure chaos with you. You are bright and strong and sensitive and wild. I’m so grateful i get to be your dad. Here’s to you finding your voice a little more every day.
Hey #Mexico, I’m a big fan of you. I had no idea how amazing you were.
This lil jefe just started 1st grade. I’m officially an old man and i’m out of my mind in love with her. Cora, here’s to your best year yet.
Yumi, thanks for letting me be your dad.
3,285 Days. 9 Years. 2 kids. 1 unbelievable run. They didn’t tell us that marriage would be a friendship deeper than I’d ever imagined. They didn’t tell us that marriage would teach me loyalty I never knew existed. They didn’t tell us that marriage was about watching someone grow up and wake up and mature and fail and struggle and succeed and flourish and become more every day, right in front of your eyes. They didn’t tell us that marriage was so widely complicated. They didn’t tell us that marriage was so bizarrely simple. They didn’t tell us that I’d wake up everyday not being sure if today was the complicated day or the simple one. They didn’t tell us that watching you become a mother would be the greatest honor of my life. They didn’t tell us that our kids would make being alive feel like the greatest gift of all. Thank you for the last 9 years. Thank you for being my wife. Thank you for every single day. Here’s to 100 more.
