Tomara Kern’s Story

I am currently overweight and just learning about kidney disease. I am Paired Up with my son—but he doesn’t know it yet! My husband and I are adopting a teenage son from the Philippines who has Stage 4 CKD and will need dialysis and a transplant. I am making it my priority to lose weight and make myself as healthy as I can in hopes that I can be a donor match for my new son. God Paired us Up for a reason, I gave life to my eight biological children and I hope that God allows me to give the gift of life to my adopted son as well! Even if I am not a match i know I need to be in the best health I can be so I can be the best care giver for our new son!
