    Although homeowner Margaret Carver had resigned herself to life as a single woman, she refused to give up on having a family of her own. With plans to eventually adopt, she purchased a 1950s ranch house on an oak-filled lot in kid-friendly Brentwood and started remodeling it with an eye to that goal. Then, she met actor and Kansas City native Tom Carver. After a whirlwind courtship, he moved in, just in time to contribute to the design and initiate the family they both longed for.
