Thank you for taking time to read through our profile. We are Chris and Lauren, and we feel so fortunate to have built a fun and meaningful life together over the past ten years. Our home is filled with music, home-cooked meals, laughter, and love, and we’re excited to share these things as we grow our family through adoption. We are so appreciative that you are getting to know us a bit, and we welcome the opportunity to share more with you if you choose!
We are both very creative and quirky people. Chris works in the architectural lighting field and Lauren teaches pre-school and has a special affinity for playing music for kids. We love talking to each other and we value each other’s perspectives on all sorts of topics. Our passions and our interests have happily provided us a huge community of friends. We have made our home just outside of Philadelphia not far from where Lauren grew up, and we’re thrilled to start our family here.
