“…whoever welcomes a child like this…. welcomes Me.”
A Letter from Christian & Rebecca
Hello! We’re Christian and Rebecca, and we’re thrilled to share a glimpse into our lives with you. Our friendship began in 1996, our love story has been unfolding since 2016, and we officially became husband and wife in 2020. As partners, we’ve cultivated a foundation of love, trust, and shared dreams. Through the beautiful path of adoption, we’re excited to welcome a precious little one into our hearts and home. Our days are seasoned with adventures, from exploring nature to cozy evenings at home with family and friends. We look forward to creating a lifetime of memories, guided by God, love, understanding, and open communication.
We genuinely hope to get to know you and are open to whatever level of connection you’re comfortable with, whether it’s through letters, photos, or the opportunity to meet. Your story is important to us, and we’re here with open hearts to embrace the journey together.
Growing up as neighbors in our teen years, life took us on separate journeys, only to beautifully intertwine again 20 years later, thanks to the wonders of Facebook. Our reconnection ignited an instant spark, and for 8 wonderful years, we’ve shared the joys of a beautiful life together. We love our adventurous days biking, kayaking, and traveling just as much as our tranquil low-key nights at home reading or doing a puzzle.
Our journey toward parenthood has been marked by resilience and unwavering faith. Despite facing challenges, we remain strong in our belief that our family is destined to grow through adoption, guided by God’s love and grace. We dream of creating a home filled with love, laughter, bedtime stories, and the pitter-patter of little feet. From family outings to cozy nights at home, we look forward to building traditions and sharing a lifetime of cherished moments with our future child.
Christian says that anyone who knows me would describe me as nurturing, selfless and resilient. I’d say I’m driven by the belief that love is the greatest gift we can give. I’m eagerly looking forward to the joys of parenthood and can’t wait to share the simple pleasures— changing diapers, reading bedtime stories, baking delicious treats, tending to scraped knees, and helping with homework. With every intention, I aim to instill kindness in our little one, creating a loving environment where they can flourish.
I’m currently a Digital Analytics Manager for a major cruise line with over 23 years of experience in the travel industry. Working mostly remotely, I’ve cultivated a deep love for my job, merging my passion for data with the excitement of the travel world. In my free time, you’ll find me pursuing my love for exploration—whether it’s jetting off to new destinations or kayaking in serene waters. Yet, my heart truly sings when surrounded by family, especially my amazing husband, who is undeniably my best friend and partner in every adventure. I’m excited about the prospect of becoming a mom, ready to embrace the unique journey of parenthood and savoring every moment with our future child.
Rebecca describes my personality as caring and kind, and says I’m a pillar of strength for those around me. I like to approach life with a hands-on, can-do mentality and always maintain a positive outlook. I’m a happy person and love to make those around me just as happy.
Professionally, I’m an insurance consultant dedicated to ensuring the well-being of senior citizens —a role I passionately embrace. In 2023, I was recognized as my Company’s top agent, a testament to my commitment to making a difference in the lives of others. Beyond my professional achievements, I’m remarkably handy with cars and projects around the house. I love kayaking, fishing, biking, spending time with family, and I love my wife and marriage with all my heart.
As a soon-to-be dad, I’m excited about the prospect of sharing my love for adventure and my practical skills with our little one. Whether it’s teaching them to ride a bike, exploring the outdoors together, ballet recitals, or passing on my knowledge of cars and music, I’m eager to be a hands-on and nurturing father. I pray to create cherished memories and a loving foundation for our growing family.
While we don’t have any children yet, we are surrounded with lots of family including nieces, nephews and bonus kids (Godchildren and children of close friends). We have 15 family members who live within a few blocks. Several other family members live across Georgia, Puerto Rico and Brazil, most of whom we see a few times per year. Holidays are huge in our home and we generally have upwards of 20+ guests during birthdays, Thanksgiving and Christmas. We are a party of 2 but a village of many.
We have family game nights quite often, and things definitely get competitive – talk about a ball of laughs. Every summer we take a family vacation where bonds are strengthened and wonderful memories are made, and Sunday mornings are reserved for God/church.
We live in a spacious 2-story, 5-bedroom home with a pool in South Florida. Our neighbors and neighborhood are wonderful, and we are a 1-minute walk from an outstanding, highly rated school. We live minutes from a huge zoo, several parks, and about 30-minutes to the beach or an hour to the Florida Keys. We are right on the edge of the suburbs and an agricultural area, so we can go from great restaurants, libraries, entertainment and shopping to farms, strawberry and sunflower fields, and mango trees in a 10-minute span. Despite its size, our home is comfy, inviting and the place we feel most at peace.
To the incredible birth mother considering us for the precious gift of adoption, this is our promise to you:
From the depths of our hearts, we want you to know that choosing us would be an honor we hold with utmost reverence. We promise to surround your child with a life steeped in love, warmth, and endless opportunities. Education will be a cornerstone, nurturing their curiosity and providing a solid foundation for their dreams to take flight. We commit to creating an environment where your child feels safe, secure, encouraged to explore, and empowered to become the best version of themselves.
We approach this journey with immense gratitude and would be honored to share this incredible journey with you. Thank you for considering us, and with heartfelt sincerity, gratitude, and hope we look forward to the possibility of welcoming your child into our hearts and home.

|Our Special Interests
Adventure and exploration are the beating heart of our shared passions and interests. Traveling is not just a hobby; it's a calling that has led us to discover the wonders of 13 states, 3 U.S. territories, and 15 countries. Every journey is an opportunity to embrace the thrill of the unknown, whether we're kayaking on every body of water we encounter or satisfying Christian's love for mountain biking in scenic landscapes. We've also set sail on 10 cruises, adding a touch of maritime magic to our adventures. The world has been our playground, and each expedition defines the adventurous spirit of our life together.
We are Christians and actively participate in our faith by attending vibrant church services every Sunday. Our church exudes a lively atmosphere filled with uplifting songs of praise and worship that resonate with our spiritual journey. We often accompany neighbors and family to services, fostering a shared bond in our faith. Beyond the spiritual nourishment, our church provides opportunities to extend a helping hand to the community through various initiatives like food drives, toy drives, and school supply donations. Engaging in these church-sponsored activities allows us to contribute meaningfully to the well-being of our local community. Our church is not just a place of worship; it's a close-knit community that feels like home, and our hearts are filled with love for the faith we share.
|Our Musical Interest
Music is a constant presence inside (and outside) of our home. In fact, Christian usually has music playing all day while working and Rebecca generally has her playlists on when getting ready to leave the house. Sometimes we even turn our living room into a dance floor where we let loose and as they say, "dance like no one is watching". We sing our hearts out, making up silly songs while hanging out and cooking. Our musical tastes are extremely diverse, ranging from pop and R&B to the spicy beats of salsa and the beautiful hymns of praise and worship. We love going to concerts and Rebecca is a huge theatre buff. Christian may not join Rebecca's sentiments too much for musicals, but he always goes and keeps an open mind (He actually loved Hamilton and Wicked).
Love is not the only language spoken in our home. In addition to English, we are both fluent in Spanish. In fact, Christian is also fluent in Portuguese and Rebecca understands and reads French.
