Our names are Themis and Ron and we have been married for 5 and a half years. We have been together for a total of 8 years. We met when we were living and working in Washington, D.C. We moved to Southern California about 5 years ago for job opportunities and to be close to Themis’ family. Themis is an attorney and Ron is a small business owner in the IT industry.
We live right down the road from Themis’ brother, sister-in-law, niece and Themis’ parents. Themis also has a lot of extended family in Southern California. We love being close to family and we are so blessed to have so much family surrounding us.
In addition to spending time with family, we enjoy being active and staying physically fit. We enjoy going for hikes, swimming and paddle boarding at the beach and we enjoying taking our dog for walks on the beach at sunset. We go skiing every year and we look forward to sharing our active lifestyle with our child and learning the activities they become passionate about.
One of our favorite things to do is to travel. We love to go to new places, experience new cultures and food and we have been very fortunate to travel the world together. We can’t wait to travel with our child and show them the beauty and joys that exist in this beautiful world of ours. Themis also has a large, extended family in Greece, so we travel to Greece often to spend time with family there. Greek culture and heritage are an important part of our lives and we celebrate many of the Greek holidays, traditions and customs. We look forward to sharing all of this with our child and also learning about and sharing their cultural heritage, if they come from a different cultural background.
Ron is from Rhode Island, so we go back to the East Coast to visit his side of the family a couple times a year. Both of our families are very supportive of our plan to adopt and are incredibly excited to welcome a new baby into our large and loving family!
We want nothing more than to become parents and give love to a child. We have tried unsuccessfully for years to have a child and we decided that our desire to be parents is so strong and adoption is a perfect path for us. We have adoption on both sides of our family and we have dear friends who are adopted, so it feels like a natural and familiar choice for us.
We promise that we will give our child all of the love we have, to be there for them, no matter what and to support them emotionally, spiritually, financially and to protect them always. We cannot think of anything more rewarding in this world than to be a parent and help raise a good, kind, loving human who will be a productive part of our society and a beacon of goodness and light.
We hope this short letter gives you a little glimpse into who we are and how excited we are to become parents and shower a child with love! Thank you for taking the time to consider us. We look forward to sharing pictures and updates with you on a regular basis so that you always have a connection with your child. We wish you the best in your journey, wherever it may lead you.With love and respect,
Ron and Themis
