A 23-year-old American woman went to Uganda and adopted 13 childrenBy Pictolic https://pictolic.com/en/article/a-23-year-old-american-woman-went-to-uganda-and-adopted-13-children
When she was only 18 years old, she did something that other girls don't even think about. The headman and the queen of the school ball, for whom all horizons were open, chose a completely different life, far from the limits of many people's dreams.
In high school, Katie Davis from Tennessee went on a missionary trip to Uganda. It was there that she decided what she wanted to do after school. Katie refused to go to university and instead devoted a year to working as a teacher in an orphanage.
In Uganda, Katie founded the Amazima Ministries pastorate, which aims to transform people's lives through faith in God. Katie even wrote the book "Kisses from Katie — A Story of Relentless Love and Redemption" ("Kisses from Katie — A story of relentless love and redemption"), which became a New York Times bestseller.
By the time Katie turned 23, she had become a foster mother to 13 girls, whom she adopted and raised as her own. Katie says that she has never experienced such love before and literally feels it on a physical level.
And this understanding of all-encompassing love once influenced Katie as not only a mother, but also a wife. With her future husband, Katie lived in the same city — Franklin, Tennessee. But they met only in Uganda, where Benji Majors came as a missionary.
Katie's story inspires many. The girl says that every woman can follow in her footsteps without coming to Uganda.
