We have everything to give and look forward to opening our hearts and home to a child.

We would consider it an enormous honor and responsibility to bring your child into our family, where good times are plentiful and love is unlimited. While we have had many highlights throughout our relationship, growing our family has been something we have discussed since we first met.

We are thrilled to bring home our first child through adoption and complete our family!

We want you to know that our hearts are truly open to a baby of any ethnicity.

Who We Are

We are Robert and Lydia. We are lucky enough to live in New York City, in a diverse, safe, and vibrant neighborhood.

We met in 2011, and we pretty much knew we were meant for each other by the third date. We both love to laugh and dance and sing out loud.

We consider ourselves lucky to have met each other and live wonderful, full lives with fulfilling and fun careers, lots of hilarious and interesting friends, and a huge, supportive extended family. Our family and friends can't wait for us to become parents!

Lydia is the lead lawyer at a company that creates movies, TV shows, digital videos, and podcasts. Robert is a design director at a digital agency--he leads teams that builds websites and apps for a wide variety of big companies and nonprofits. We are both lucky to enjoy our careers, which are both secure and flexible.

Most importantly, this security and flexibility will allow us to have lots of time to enjoy being parents.

We make fun, family and friends a HUGE priority. We often spend our vacation time traveling with family. We both have siblings and cousins we love to hang out with, and they all have children we adore. Everyone looks forward to vacationing with another little one.

In the time that we have known each other, we have been lucky enough to travel to many beautiful and exotic places. We have been to Hawaii, Spain, St. John, Australia, Guatemala, and Portugal--and we recently went on a two week trip to Italy and France with Lydia's entire family. There were 15 of us traveling together! Lots of wonderful memories were made.

We also love to ski and snowboard. (Lydia's a really good snowboarder, and Robert can ALMOST keep up with her!) This past winter we spent a week in Utah over Christmas with Lydia's brother and his family. We especially love to take our nephews and nieces out on the mountain. They're just learning how to ski and it's so fun watching them challenge themselves.

Every year we celebrate Christmas at Lydia's brother's house in Indiana. That's a special time for us because we get together with the whole extended family and often get to spend a whole week or two together.

Adoption Diary

We’re in South Africa!

—We are on a wonderful vacation in South Africa! We arrived a few days ago after a full 21 hours of travel. We went up to Table Mountain our first day and the views are magnificent—we were above the clouds looking out to the sea. This city is so gorgeous. We’re also having some tasty meals here—the food scene is top notch. Today we visited one of the townships, which are populated by the black folks. South Africa is living deep in the shadow of apartheid which ended in the early 1990s. Our visit to the Langa Township was educational and interesting—we had the opportunity to talk to some amazing locals. Tomorrow we plan to do some hiking!

—Yesterday we drove from Cape Town along the southern coast up to wine country. South Africa is SO BEAUTIFUL. We stopped at a beach called Boulders Beach where we saw a zillion penguins sunning themselves and swimming in the ocean. We’ve been blessed with perfect weather. We feel so lucky to be able to visit this wonderful place.

—We went on safari for four days and had the MOST amazing experience. We got up close to lions, elephants, rhinos, hyenas, zebras, giraffes…and so much more. I think our favorite part of it all was seeing all of the babies—elephant babies, hyena pups, rhino calves! We couldn’t believe everyday how lucky we were to see such a wonderful part of our planet up close.

Nervous and Excited

We just joined Adoptimist and it’s super exciting to think of potential birth moms/dads who may be seeing our profile. In the meantime, we’re just making the most of each day while we wait for a match with our first child.

This summer we had a wonderful vacation with Lydia’s extended family (5 nieces and nephews and 3 generations!) at a lake house in Michigan. Looking forward to the fall!

Thank You for Visiting Our Adoption Profile
