Kara is from Texas but her heart belongs in Florida and that's how she came up with her nickname "A Florida Girl at Heart" (AFLGirlatHeart). She joined SK back in 2002 - before it was even known as SheKnows! Her and her DH have been together for ten years. They met at work and she liked him for months before he noticed her - silly man! They have 3 beautiful children - a girl and two boys - and have been ttc #4 for 13 cycles now. They would love to have a total of 5 children, 4 biological and one adopted. Activities that Kara enjoys with her DH is hiking, camping, playing with the kids at the park and to just chill and watch movies. Something you might not know about Kara is she received the Top Employee of the Year award for work one year (the job that she had when she met her dh).
Kara we're praying you get your BFP really soon.
