Tom & Kara
A Few of Our Favorite Things
Place to Vacation
Hello & Thank You,
Our names are Tom and Kara. We have been happily married for over nine years. Central to our life and marriage is our absolute faith in God and His plan for our lives. After 2 years of infertility and much prayer, we believe that God specifically placed in our hearts the desire to adopt. Less than a year later, our prayers were answered, and we adopted our beautiful daughter Abigail into our family. She has brought more joy and love into our lives in the last two and a half years than we ever thought possible. We have an open adoption with Abigail’s birth family, and consider them as part of our extended family. We are so excited for the opportunity to make Abigail a big sister and expand our family once again.
Our professional lives allow for much flexibility in our daily routines. Tom owns a successful company based out of Chicago, IL and works out of our home here in Texas. We are so blessed that his daily work and travel schedules are flexible, which allows him to spend lots of quality time with our family. Kara currently works from home as an accountant for Tom’s business, and occasionally teaches Pilates/personal training sessions while Abigail attends preschool. However, once a new baby arrives, Kara plans to reduce her teaching hours and stay at home full time.
We are actively involved in our church, and we meet weekly with a group of families to catch up and have dinner together. Many couples in this group already have, or are planning to, adopt or foster children, and we love knowing that Abigail has close friends who will share her story. Our families are integral parts of our lives and they cannot wait to welcome another child into the family. We spend as much time as possible with our families, and Abigail loves playing with all of her cousins. We have many family traditions, and enjoy several holiday celebrations throughout the year with both of our families.
We feel extraordinarily blessed to have traveled this journey that has brought so much love and joy into our lives, and we are excited to have the opportunity to experience it again. Our hearts and our home are ready to welcome another child, and we pray for God’s perfect timing in this.
Thank you so very much for considering us.
