Hello, we are Christian & Lydia!

We are Christian and Lydia, a married couple living in downtown Brooklyn with our two sweet cats, Stella and Maude. We met at work in 2008. We became friends immediately, a couple in 2010, and married in 2013. We love to travel, especially to the beach and mountains. When at home we like to read, cook, and listen to music. We both enjoy running and exercise together regularly. We have a big extended family with four living parents, six siblings, and six nieces and nephews. It is a very loving and supportive home, and we can’t wait to have a new member of our family.

Our Lives

As a couple, we are also best friends, and love to experience the world together. We enjoy a wide variety of activities from hiking in the mountains to visiting museums in the city. Our child's life would be filled with excitement but also many peaceful nights at home. We work moderate hours and make sure to eat together as a family nightly. We can’t wait to have a new place at our table.

Our Family

It takes a village to raise a child and in our home we practically have one. We share a 3 apartment building with our extended family. Lydia’s parents live on the first floor, her brother, wife, and two sons on the second floor and us on the third. This makes it really easy for us to support each other through thick and thin, and enjoy visits any day of the week. 

In Conclusion

Thank you so much for considering us to adopt your child. We hope this is the first step to warm, life long relationship built on love and care for you and your child.
