Who We Are

We met at work in 2016. We are both architects, so we immediately connected over this shared passion. Mitra was attracted to Christopher’s kindness and Christopher was drawn to Mitra’s warm, energetic presence. Our relationship grew, we moved in together after dating for two years and recently got engaged in June 2021. Our relationship is built on our mutual admiration for each other, trust, adventure, and love.

We are healthy and active and enjoy biking and hiking on the weekends. We love spending time with family and celebrating our cultures by cooking traditional Jamaican and Iranian dishes. Independently, Christopher enjoys gardening and design, and Mitra enjoys yoga and reading. As architect’s we also love to travel and explore the beautiful architecture of the world. As a religious and spiritual couple, we celebrate our Christian and Islamic traditions together and with our families.

Adoption Diary

01: Beginning Our Adoption Journey

Beginning our adoption journey has been the most exciting time of our lives. While we feel prepared to have a child enter our loving home, we acknowledge the vulnerability and patience this process asks of us. We are far from perfect and do not represent a typical American family, our unique cultural intersection is something we take pride in. As we build our family, we want our child to enjoy the diversity of our backgrounds while specifically learning about the beauty of life they originate from. This is why we are advocates for open adoption for our child.
Adoption, while a gift for us, will be a process of healing for our child and first family. We embrace the warmth and connectivity that open option provides for everyone in the adoption triad. This section of our profile will share the different aspects of our lives that may be of interest to you. We hope that in reading our diary entries that you learn more about our fears, hopes, dreams as human beings and can imagine what a family of open adoption together may entail.

Thank You for Visiting Our Adoption Profile

We want to thank you for considering us as adoptive parents for your child.

We truly appreciate your kindness and strength and look forward to hearing from you.
