Adoption Blog: Kisses from Katie just recently caught my attention on FB because of the word “adoption”. As I clicked the link and read the actual post I learned more about a woman named Katie. She is single and has 13 children. She lives in Uganda and has adopted all 13 of her girls. Sixsseeds.org put a post of hers up. Because it is National Adoption Month they are giving $2.00 to Katie’s family for each comment that is posted.
I looked into it and it totally seems legit. Sixseeds promotes adoptions and Katie has a unique story. It makes sense that they would support her in the month of November. If you would like to know more about Katie go here. Katie talks about how believers have been adopted and how the Lord has seen fit to bless her with 13 girls. She talks about how adoption is beautiful and wonderful but how it is also hard and painful she says….
“..It stinks to not know when your daughter took her first steps or what her first word was or what she looked like in Kindergarten. It stinks not to know where she slept and whose shoulder she cried on and what the scar on her eyebrow is from. It stinks to know that for ten years of her precious life you were NOT the shoulder she cried on or the Mommy she hugged.”
But she also goes on to say…
“And every single day, it is worth it. Because ADOPTION IS GOD’S HEART. He sets the lonely in families. Adoption is the reason that I can come before God’s throne and beg Him for mercy, because He predestined me to be adopted as His child through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.”
