Family Trip to the Mountains

About Us

We met on a plane in 2007 while we were both traveling to Chicago. Hayden was going for business and Kara for fun. We bumped into each other in the galley and struck up a conversation for several hours. Needless to say, it was an amazing flight for both of us! We had so much fun getting to know each other that we get engaged in 2009 and married in 2010. We then had our son Benjamin in 2014!

Living in California, we love to take advantage and spend time outdoors all year long. Our home is right by the ocean in a cute beach town so we love taking walks on the beach together, going on hikes, visiting Disneyland, our local zoos, aquariums, museums, and so many other great spots.

Travel is also something we are passionate about. Together, we have visited many places all over the world including Hawaii, Switzerland, Germany, London and Paris and then a little closer to home, we have been to New York, Florida and Vail among many others. Since Benjamin was born, he has joined us on all of our trips and we are so excited to continue this tradition with a new baby one day. Introducing ourselves and our children to new cultures and getting to see different places is something that means a lot to both of us.

Since becoming a family of three, we do almost everything together, which not only includes memorable trips and holidays, but also all the normal, everyday stuff like grocery shopping, running errands and having dinner together every night. That is our favorite time together, where we get to just sit down and be together as a family, talking about our days.

Our Adoption Story & Promise to You

The path to adoption started for Kara when she was young. Over the years, Kara has had several close friends who were adopted and has always believed that not only was it a beautiful gift in that they were able to have great families and great lives with their adopted families but has also felt tremendous respect for the decisions their birth mothers have made. When we started to discuss having a family, we quickly learned that we shared the same feelings towards adoption. Now that Benjamin is a toddler, we just feel so strongly that this is the perfect time to grow our family.

As parents, we will teach our children about responsibility, knowing the difference between right and wrong, self-esteem, empathy, gratitude, the ability to deal with adversity and kindness to all living beings. We will provide a supportive, happy and healthy life with great experiences – birthdays, holidays, beach days, family vacations, games, sports, charity work, etc. We will do everything in our power to provide every opportunity to pursue his/her dreams, no matter what they are.

Above all else, we plan on providing a new addition to our family with endless love.
