Kara Kent in Seal Beach

Today we are featuring Kara Kent who lives in Seal Beach.

Kara healed her sister’s broken heart. When doctor after doctor told Katie that she couldn’t carry her own children, her lifelong dream of being a mother could have been shattered. Kara had watched her sister suffer from the effects of Lupus since the age of six, and Kara thought there was no way she could help, until now.

With ultimate courage, Kara gracefully volunteered to carry Katie’s baby by being a surrogate. Kara spent months injecting herself with the hormones it would take to carry this little one, going through counseling to ensure she was a good fit, all the while raising a family of her own. Through this vigorous process, she asked for absolutely nothing in return.

Kara renewed Katie’s spirit after spending over twenty years battling a debilitating disease. Kara gave Katie the gift of holding a little man who keeps her soul laughing and her body moving. The selflessness that Kara so boldly offered, gave Katie the best medicine that she’d ever known; her world, her love, her mended heart, her son, Kent Oslo.

Kudos to the great women around us who boldly do things because you believe it’s right. You inspire us to follow your lead and have the courage to be selfless.
