Ron & Themis

Thank you for taking the time learn a little bit about us. We hope you will be able to see how much we love each other and our family and get a little glimpse into the full, happy life we will provide for a child. We are beyond excited to become parents and we promise that we will do everything in our power to be loving, nurturing, supportive parents!

Adoption in Our Lives

Beautiful Rome - We Can't Wait to Share the World With a Child!

Adoption has affected both of our families and us. Themis has a cousin who was adopted from South Korea. Themis is close to her cousin and to her aunt and uncle who chose to adopt. Ron also has adoption on his side of the family. One of Ron’s cousins and his wife adopted a baby from China. Finally, one of Themis’ dearest friends, whom she has been a friend with now for over 27 years, is adopted. Through all of these personal connections to adoption, we have seen how amazing it can be to adopt and become a family through adoption.

We have seen so much love in the families that were created through adoption and how it is possible to give a child love, a caring family, opportunities, and support and for the adoptive parents to gain the same in return. We can’t wait to experience this for ourselves. We know we have a great support network of family and friends who have gone through the adoption process or have been adopted, if we ever have any questions or need support. We also believe that our friends and family who have been adopted will be a great support system for our child.

Leisure Time

Walking the Dogs With Family at Sunset

We try to be active as much as possible and look forward to having our child experience all the activities we enjoy. We enjoy going to the beach, stand-up paddle boarding and taking walks on the beach at sunset. We also enjoy hiking local trails in Southern California, and we try to find hikes whenever we travel. Themis is an avid yoga practitioner and Ron spends his leisure time running, mountain biking, playing the acoustic guitar, and building things in his wood shop.

At a Concert to Support Veterans

Ron is a Army veteran and we always do something special to celebrate his service and the service of all our veterans on Veterans Day. We have done activities like participating in a Veterans 5k race and attended charitable events for the veterans.

We also love to play board games with our immediate and extended family. We often have game nights at Themis’ parents’ house on the weekends.

Our Life Priorities

Family takes priority over everything. Themis has a large extended family and the whole family is always helping each other in one way or another - from us taking care of our niece, Ellie, to Themis’ mom watching our dog when we go on vacation, to Ron solving all of the family’s IT issues. In this day and age life can be very busy, but our family always takes time for one another.

This will be no different when we have our own child. Our child will take precedence over everything. We are committed to providing all the love we have and the best life possible to our child. They say it takes a village to raise a child, and our family, without a doubt, is the village that will help in every way possible. Our families are already so excited about our adoption plan and can’t wait to meet our child. We look forward to seeing our child grow up surrounded by family and share in the same amazing support network that we are so blessed to have.

Our House and Neighborhood

Our Home

We live in beautiful, sunny southern California. We are so lucky not only to live close to family, but also to live in a beautiful city in the middle of extraordinary natural elements. We recently purchased and moved into our home and we couldn’t be happier with our home and our neighborhood. We have four bedrooms, a large sunny living room and two large decks that overlook a peaceful canyon. Our home is newly built on a street that is tucked away and very quiet. It is a very contemporary style, with the most modern amenities and high-tech features. We are enjoying making our home a cozy nest and have a room set aside for the nursery.

Our neighborhood is very close knit, with neighbors that know each other and look out for one another. Our community has many parks, schools and natural canyons filled with magnificent trees and songbirds. We are also only a 10-minute drive from the beach and spectacular bays. We enjoy taking walks on the beach, swimming and paddle boarding on weekends.

There are many young couples and families in our neighborhood and we think it is a perfect place to raise a child. We purposely bought a home that is larger than what we need so that we have room to expand our growing family. Our favorite place to be in our house is sitting on our back deck, enjoying a meal outside and taking in the trees, sunset and sounds of our canyon.

Our Extended Families

Christmas With Family

Themis has a large extended family, both here in California and in Greece (think My Big Fat Greek Wedding big!). Themis’ mom and dad live down the road from us and Themis’ brother, sister-in-law and niece live half a mile away. Themis also has many aunts, uncles and cousins that live in southern California. It is such a blessing to have so many members of our immediate family surrounding us.

Ron’s immediate and extended family is in Rhode Island and we go to Rhode Island a couple times a year to visit and spend holidays.

All Smiles With Our Goddaughter

We enjoy getting together with Themis’ immediate family for family meals at least once a week and we love playing board games when we get together. We take our niece/goddaughter to church on Sundays and love spending time with her.

Because Themis has Greek heritage, the Greek culture and traditions play an important role in our family. We also love to make and enjoy Greek food. Ron has become a great chef and enjoys making Greek dishes like spanakopita. We travel to Greece often to see family. One of our favorite memories is dancing traditional Greek line dances with all of our friends and family at our wedding.

From Us to You

Thank you for taking the time to learn a little about us. We hope to get the opportunity to get to know you if you select us. We want you to know that we respect and admire you for your strength and selflessness in considering adoption.

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 & Themis
