Thank you for taking the time to get to know our family of four!
We are Pierce and Kara – we met 15 years ago and have experienced countless adventures, overcome life’s challenges, and built a family that leaves us beaming with pride. We believe in working hard, loving unconditionally, and laughing along the way! We want you to know that we will embrace and respect any level of ongoing communication you would like to have with your child. We hope through this profile you will be able to see the love we have in our marriage, in our family, and the love we already hold in our hearts for your child.
We met and fell in love in high school 15 years ago and now have two wonderful children, Wren and Turner, and one loveable dog, Reuben. We both work full time in financial services and insurance. We love showing our children that we can work hard and still keep our family as our top priority! In our free time, we enjoy being active, playing sports, or attending sporting events. We also enjoy downtime watching movies or cooking a nice meal together. Family time is a treasure and we find joy in the simple things like going out for ice cream, bike rides, and game nights, to planned activities like vacations to the beach. Family is everything and we also love to spend time with our extended family that lives close by. We are so excited to add to our family through the gift of adoption!
About Pierce...by Kara
Pierce is the fun-loving, spontaneous heart of our family. The same things that drew me to him when I was 18 are the same things I love about him as a Dad. He is always making us laugh and he is a great example for me and our children. He has a passion for hockey, both playing and coaching and, in the summer, he spends his free time wake surfing.
Pierce is a steadfast husband who reminds me to find joy in every day, to laugh easily, and always make time to do things you love. He delights in teaching our kids this as well! Pierce is looking forward to teaching your child all about hockey, watersports, classic comedy movies, and passing on his love of writing and language.
About Kara...by Pierce
Kara loves her work, reading, exercising, baking, taking our dog Reuben on walks, and playing with our kids. She is a beautiful, highly intelligent, and hard-working mom who is successful both at work and at home. She is the best mother in the world for our two children, and always offers help, compassion, understanding, and the utmost love and care for them.
Kara is the foundation of our family, an amazing Christian woman who highly prioritizes faith in our household. She makes sure all of our schedules are running on time and brings incredible light and laughter to our lives. She is looking forward to teaching your child about Jesus, how to cook and bake, and is excited to pass on her love of numbers!
Our Kids and Family
We have two wonderful children, Wren (6) and Turner (4) who are the light of our lives. They are smart, independent, fun-loving kiddos who love to go swimming, play teacher, and play with barbies and dinosaurs. We are so thankful for the two children and know they are excited to welcome home their new sibling!
Most of our extended family lives in close proximity and we visit with them often. Kara’s parents own a farm and live on a lake where we enjoy lots of different activities from fishing to swimming. Pierce’s parents love to have the grandkids over to swim in their pool which provides endless fun for the whole family. They are ecstatic about our adoption and are thrilled to add another grandchild to the bunch!
Our Home in Illinois
We live in a spacious home that has plenty of room for gathering and play. We have four bedrooms, an office, and lots of living space. We also have a very spacious back yard with a big vegetable garden and a large playset. Behind our house are trails and farmland. One of our favorite things is watching the farmers in their tractors and combines harvesting the fields off our back deck in the fall. We live in a top school district and just a couple of miles from the private Christian school our daughter attends. We love being in our family-friendly neighborhood as it offers many fun activities for the kids and our whole family.
We promise to love your child and provide for them throughout their lifetime with encouragement, support, and opportunities. We promise to be good examples, teaching the importance of hard work, compassion, and humility. We will provide them with a quality education, and experiences that will help them grow and develop in their God-given talents. And most importantly, we promise to raise your child in Christ’s love. Thank you for considering our family.

More About Our Family
Our Special Interests
Kara loves to cook, garden, and run in her free time. Pierce loves to play hockey and go wake surfing in his free time. As a family, we try to make everyday activities opportunities to do things together, from cooking dinner to mowing the lawn... our kids love to get involved! We are also passionate about traveling and providing experiences for our family that will lead to lasting memories. We take a family trip at least once a year and look forward to sharing many more new experiences as a couple and as a family.
We believe that Jesus is our Lord and Savior and we have raised our children in a Christian church and at a private Christian school. We have a wonderful church group that we meet with regularly where we find ongoing support and encouragement for us and our children. It is a top priority for us as parents to foster our children's relationship with Jesus as they grow and develop.
Our Musical Interest
Music is beloved in this family and we have a very eclectic taste! Pierce loves all kinds of music especially rock and Americana. Kara mostly listens to Christian rock music but also loves the oldies (70's music is the best!) Pierce loves to pass along his love of music to our kids, and they love to listen to records on our record player or request their favorite songs on car rides.
