At the wedding, the girls were attended by 13 foster daughters from Uganda.
Perhaps for every woman the wedding is one of the most important events in life. We all want our relatives and friends to be present next to us on this significant day, which could share with us joyful emotions and unforgettable impressions.
At the wedding of the heroine of this story, Katie Davis, there were special guests – her 13 foster daughters from Uganda.
A few years ago, young Katie from Nashville, Tennessee, had a life that any girl could dream of. She won the title of Queen Ball, traveled in a yellow convertible, wore designer clothes and met with an attractive young man. Her parents expected that she would go to college and receive a substantial education. But Katie had other plans.
At 18, the girl expressed a desire to go to Uganda with a charity mission.
Initially, it was assumed that Katie would spend no more than a year in Uganda, but soon she decided to stay there forever. In 2008, Davis founded the organization of Amazima, the mission of which is the education and provision of all kinds of assistance to needing people in Uganda.
Being a young unmarried woman, Katie was allowed to adopt the child. Over time, Davis adopted 13 girls. According to the girl, adopted children helped her learn the most important lesson in love and spiritual harmony.
“There should be many stories about this unique moment when foster parents first see their child and understand that he was sent from above. I was lucky to experience it. And it seems to me that this feeling is much deeper than love, ”said Katie.
Changes in the worldview helped her meet her soul mate. In 2015, Katie married a man named Benji Majors.
Young people met in Uganda when Benji, like Katie, came there with a charity mission. On May 6, 2016, the couple had a son Noah.
“My husband is another manifestation of God’s love for me, another reminder that he blesses me and each of our daughters. When I hear the children enthusiastically call Benji “dad”, my heart rejoices”, the girl shared.
Most brides invite relatives and friends to their wedding. At Katie’s wedding, her 13 adopted daughters were attended, a touching photo with which became a real embodiment of love, devotion and selflessness.
Today, Katie lives in the village of Djingj on the shores of Lake Victoria with her husband Benji and 14 children.
In the afternoon, she spends time with them, and in the evenings she is engaged in administrative work in her organization. The girl also wrote the book “Kisses from Katie”, which became a bestseller according to the New York Times. Together with her family, she lives on a modest salary and income from the book.
Katie’s mother, Mary, comes to her every year for a month.
According to the woman, she is happy to be a grandmother of 14 children.
Of course, she wanted her daughter to graduate from college and receive a higher education. But she understands that Katie found her calling, and supports her in every possible way.
