Single parents around the country share the joy Kara felt when adopting a child internationally. Kara, a single parent adopting from Haiti, shares her story with us on our Building Arizona Families Youtube channel, HERE. Kara opens up about her adoption journey and experience with Building Arizona Families.
It was essential for Kara to find an adoption agency that was open, honest, and transparent. With support and guidance from BAF, Kara felt comfortable during the adoption process and felt she was able to stay true to herself. As a single parent adopting from Haiti, being truly listened to was a key component in choosing to work with Building Arizona Families on her adoption journey. She immediately felt confident and relaxed working with our staff who have also adopted internationally.
The Magical Call That Blessed Kara’s Life Forever
During a meeting at work, Kara received a phone call and knew her life was about to change forever. This proud mama can remember the exact moment she learned she had matched with a little girl in Haiti. Kara explains this day as the best day of her life. After waiting patiently through the long process of international adoption, finally getting the call is magical. That night, Kara celebrated how fortunate she was to be a single parent adopting from Haiti and to be blessed with this little girl.
At a young age, Kara knew she wanted to adopt a child. After traveling to many places and seeing the devastation children can grow up in, she knew international adoption was the perfect fit.
Kara shares how fortunate enough she was to spend two weeks in Haiti with her precious little girl. She learned how beautiful, sweet, inquisitive, and curious her little girl was. But Kara couldn’t help but ask, “What if she doesn’t love me as much as I love her?” Things started tentatively at first, but during her two-week visit, a beautiful bond started to form. This fantastic single parent adopting from Haiti was able to show her loving commitment to a child in need. On the last day of the visit, Kara talks about her emotional goodbye and how she knew this little girl loved her back when she reached out to Kara and wiped her tear away.
Provide a Hopeful Future for a Child in Need as a Single Parent Adopting From Haiti
When visiting Haiti to meet her precious daughter, Kara saw many children who do not have many of the things which others take for granted. These children lack simple things like fresh drinking water, safe living conditions, and above all else, the secure love of parents. At Building Arizona Families, we are on a mission to find safe and loving homes for as many Haitian children as possible. Do you feel called to open your heart and provide a hopeful future for one of these precious children?
