I'm Kara. Thanks for dropping by! And welcome!
Want to know a few tid-bits about me? Well, let's see. I'm a horned frog (if you have to ask, then you aren't from around here). I LOVE yoga pants and super fancy ball gowns, go figure! I adore naps, Gigi's cupcakes, and traveling to new places. I have two education degrees and would really like to get my PHD someday. My all time favorites? My boys! Including my dog. I love them more than anything.
I am also a small business owner. #shoplocal! And a fierce advocate for infertility. You can read my family's journey below.

Every little girl's dream is to get married and have kids. They never think that they will have trouble conceiving.
My husband and I did for six years.
Every couples journey through infertility is different. Ours started in 2004, so it was a long time ago. We went through IUIs and IVFs. Lots of doctors appointments, $$, shots, tears and sleepless nights. Our first round of IVF we transferred three embryos. None of them took and we were devastated. Our doctor suggested that we try one more time, which we did. We transferred two embryos in 2008 and on Mother's Day 2008 we found out that we were expecting. Only one of these embryos took, but that was fine by us! Caden was born in January 2009, and he was perfect.
We tried one more time in 2014, but our Doctor said there was no way it would work again. So we will be a family of three!
These many years of trying to build a family have lead me to be an advocate for the infertility community in many ways. I have written two books (check them out here!), worked with RESOLVE's Walk of Hope (National Infertility Association) for eight years and have raised funds several times at infertility events.
Currently a large portion of my clients come to me because they connect with my story or have met me through my work with RESOLVE. I treat all of my families like my own, because I know how precious each and every life is. Whether they are babies that are here or babies you want desperately.
