Loving couple wants to adopt
Exploring the world in Quilatoa, Ecuador

About Rena Rena grew up as an only child and has always been incredibly close to both her mother and father. Rena’s parents were married for 28 years before her mother passed away. Her childhood was full of love, laughter, and lots of attention.

Rena received degrees in Business, Nursing, and Healthcare Administration, and has been an RN since 2008. Rena also volunteers as an English teacher for adult immigrants once a week and loves to donate her spare time to help others.

What Jimmy loves most about Rena is the way that she sets goals and achieves them. Rena is resilient, a go-getter, and is great at navigating challenges.

Great parents for your child
Celebrating our anniversary

About Jimmy Jimmy grew up with his mom, dad, and younger sister. Jimmy’s parents were married for over 40 years before Jimmy’s father passed away. Jimmy’s childhood included annual family camping trips to Canada, boating on Lake Erie, and playing guitar with his dad.

Jimmy received a Bachelor’s in International Studies and worked as a bi-lingual Loan Officer for 10 years. Recently, Jimmy decided to leave banking and follow Rena into Nursing, where he feels a calling to help others. While in school, Jimmy waits tables at a local winery.

What Rena loves most about Jimmy is his good-naturedness and ability to always find the positive. Jimmy has a big heart for others and he is always willing to stand up for what’s right.

Our Lives We are extremely active. We love to sing karaoke, try new foods, and spend time with friends and family. Adventure calls to us, and we’ve been known to sky dive, rock climb, ride motorcycles, scuba, bungee jump, and more. Our greatest shared passion, however, is traveling. Together, we have been to over 25 countries. We love learning and want to explore the world as a family with our children one day.

Thank You The last thing you should know about us is that our hearts are huge. We always want to help, and we genuinely care about making a difference. We have learned throughout our marriage to communicate, listen, support each other, and compromise. We don’t always get it right, but we always keep trying, and we promise this to you.

Our parenting style will be one of understanding, compassion, encouragement, and patience. We appreciate your consideration and we wish you peace and strength as you navigate your journey.

Our Family At a Glance

We live in Macedonia, Ohio, 30 minutes south of Cleveland. We’ve been married since June 2019. We work as a nurse and a nursing student/waiter. Our hobbies include travel, karaoke, eating ethnic food, and adventure! We believe open adoption is a beautiful way to build a network of love and support for our child and our family. A child can never have too many people to love them.
