Meet Rena S. & Jimmy T.

Adoptive family


We are Jimmy and Rena, and we are so excited to begin this adoption journey with you.

We are ready to share our active and fulfilling life with a child. We like working on projects around our home, spending time with our dogs, and enjoying special moments with family and friends – going to see live bands, singing karaoke, trying new restaurants, attending art exhibits and shows, and going to the home of our best friends, Haci and Ozlem, for an amazing homemade meal.

Our biggest shared interest is our love for travel. We have made friendships with people all over the world. On average, we go out of the country 2-3 times per year and plan to continue this pattern with a child. We want to raise our child to be open-minded and accepting of all people, and grateful for all the blessings we have.

Loving parents for a child

About Rena Rena grew up an only child to two very devoted and involved parents. She recalls a childhood full of love, laughter, and lots of attention.

Rena received degrees in Business, Nursing, and Healthcare Administration. She has been an RN since 2008 and for the last ten years has worked for health insurance companies. She loves being able to help others while working from home. Rena plans to take 12 weeks off when our baby arrives and will utilize in-home daycare when she returns to work so she can check in on the baby all throughout the day.

About Jimmy Jimmy’s parents went above and beyond to provide Jimmy and his sister the opportunity to learn by sending them to private school and taking them on exciting vacations all over the world. He graduated from college with a Bachelor’s degree in International Studies.

Jimmy is excited about the opportunity to build a close relationship with a child and develop the type of bond that he had with his parents growing up. He has been a mortgage loan officer for over ten years. Like Rena, Jimmy works from home and will be able to spend a lot of time with our child throughout each day.

Our Home We live in Macedonia, Ohio, about 30 minutes south of Cleveland. We have a large 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath home in a neighborhood full of diverse families with young children. Evening walks, block parties, and game nights with friends are regular occurrences in our community. We love that within 30 minutes of our home, we can be hiking in the Metroparks, exploring a museum, attending a concert, swimming at a beach, or eating some amazing ethnic food!

Thank you. Thank you for taking this time to learn a bit about us. We promise to love and adore any child that we are blessed with, and welcome them (and you) into our family with open arms!

We approach life with a positive outlook and always live intentionally, with great love and emotion. Life, for us, is not about waiting for tomorrow, but about embracing every moment today!
