Karen is in a class by herself. She is part of our family and goes way above and beyond in everything she does for the kids. And honestly, she does the same for us.Karen is priceless. One of the most heart-warming things about Karen is that she doesnt stop thinking about the boys, even when shes not with them. She is always alerting us to local events that she thinks the boys would like and she has even joined us on the weekend to see firsthand how they enjoyed them. Or, she may bake something at home to bring over for the boys to tempt them into trying new things. CJ especially loves these treats.
Karen creates a great balance of home-based and extra-curricular activities for the children. We consider ourselves very blessed to have such a kind, intelligent and loving person taking care of our two boys as if they were her own.
I will close on one last example. Last spring, Karen chose Jack to be the ring bearer at her wedding. Throughout the event, I think Karen was more focused on whether Jack was happy and having a good time than with making sure that everything worked like clockwork. When Jack ran past the flower girl during the ceremony calling for Karen, she patiently hugged him and explained to him that he needed to go back. And I think she held him more than we did throughout the day, letting him touch her hair and the beadwork on her dress, play with her jewelry, etc. The fact that she could be so selfless on one of the most important days of her life speaks volumes to her character and her genuine love for our children.
Karen is extraordinary in every way and our boys love her dearly.”
