Ethan and Kara


Ethan and Kara, hopeful adoptive parents from Virginia

We’d like you to meet Ethan and Kara, a hopeful adoptive couple living in Virginia. We encourage you to read about their life in their own words. Here is what they have to say:

Our Life

We are a fun, active couple very excited to adopt through the gift of open adoption a second time. We both work in education and are a creative family ready to teach your child new things.

We feel that each year is a new adventure and find that adopting our son in 2018 has been the greatest adventure of our lives!

Meet Kara (by Ethan)

Kara is an amazing elementary school literacy teacher! With a heart for learning, she loves sharing her passion for books and can be found reading, crafting or creating new experiences in her spare time.

As a teacher, she is at home during the summer and school breaks and enjoys finding new adventures to explore with our son Ezra. Our home is filled with great children’s books and she is excited to read them to your child!

Meet Ethan (by Kara)

I am constantly amazed by Ethan and and his talent for learning new things so he can fix up our home! He is a fun, silly man who is also a deep thinker. He enjoys his career in campus recreation, working as a part-time adjunct professor as well.

Ethan loves teaching Ezra about sports and exercise, playing toddler versions of baseball, soccer and basketball and is looking forward to teaching your child to have an active lifestyle as well!
