  2. Katie, I am a new Christian, and one of my new friends from church shared the Red Carpet story on facebook, so it ended up on my wall. So this is the second time I have heard a friend from church mention your story. So I clicked on your picture and read more about you and your children and your self-sacrificing, and yes courageous life choice. I am deeply touched by your humility and candor as you describe how you feel as you get tugged out of bed in the early hours of the morning. I am a single parent, and some days it is hard to want to face the day, but then I hear about people like you who listen to Jesus when He tells them,”You are needed here.” I need the reminder that we are never alone. God is always with us. Jesus died for us so we may have hope. And all of the trials of every day are just temporary. You are not alone Katie. You are loved.

  3. Hi there Katie!
    I'm a high school senior, looking the future in the face at the moment. I'm at a crossroad in life right now. I have the opportunity to attend an upper class hair school, and move to Minneapolis to work at an award winning salon-on the road to making a 6 figure income in that profession. But I also feel such a tug to leave everything I've known in America and go to an uncertain place to give my life completely for others. I know that there is ministry opportunities whichever way I decide to go-because our lives are ministry. But, I would also love to explore the possibility of living beyond this materialized world. I just don't know where to begin. Do you have any recommendations for someone in my situation? Who would I contact if I wanted to move to another country in order to begin this new life? Thank you for not only your selflessness towards others-but for also sharing your vision with the world. sharaleeattema@gmail.com

  6. I followed a link to your blog yesterday. I stayed up till midnight reading it all, I cried and cried. I order a book and a necklace and we are going to talk about sponsoring a child in our family night tonight. I'm humbled by your love of the Savior and your willingness to give your will to him. He has given us all and you have truly managed to give him back the one thing that is really yours. I prayed for your children and I prayed a little harder for my own children. Thank you for sharing your testimony. Hope you have a happy day, Becca, mother of 4 from Utah

    You know how when we are adopted by God, we are supposed to start looking like Him? I think your girls are starting to look like you. They have the same light in their eyes and the same heart. Just thought you should know that.

  9. Hello, Katie! I do- and would love to tell you just how amazing you are to the world. God has used you in so many special ways. The way you are with children, your sweet smile, and also the way you have always seemed to stay true to yourself.
    It is the kind in you that really stands out, and the way God uses you.. it's truly a beautiful thing. At the moment, I am in the middle of reading your book. (Kisses From Katie) The book is so very touching to me in several ways..
    The way you talk about God is truly amazing, the relationship a person can have with God is the best thing in life. I am so happy you are caring for all of these wonderful children.
    God bless you, Katie. God bless your girls and all of the other children. God bless your life. You are in my thoughts & prayers. Thank you for putting a spark in my timeline! -Rose

  16. Hi Katie!I'm Olga! I admire you so much! I read your book just before I travelled to Uganda this summer. Just before my NGO The Mirembe Children's Project started for real. It has now bee nup andd running for 10 months and we are growing each day. I'm swedish and I'm traveling out Uganda once a year as for now.

    I thank God for leading me to you and your book. Because you have taught me to trust in God, even when things seem so hard with the project, sick children, sponsors making promises and not fulfilling them and all that. So thank you Katie! You are such an inspiration for me and the work I'm doing in Masaka πŸ™‚

    It would be really fun to get in touch with you to share experiences and thoughts.

    [Disclaimer: Please feel NO obligation to publish this comment. At the end I'm going to give you my website and am not trying to make any kind of plug]

    Beautiful article and beautiful picture! Seriously, your picture makes my heart melt because it is so obvious how amazing you know the little person you are holding is. You are willing to make any face you need to connect with her. My heart smiles. Often I think of you and pray for you. At 23, I moved into a children's home as houseparent for 12 girls. I love my girls and none of them were free for adoption, but I cannot imagine having been committed enough to be their mom if I had the opportunity. What a courageous woman you are!!! Also, I'm an adoptive mom, of two boys who both have severe trauma. Recently, I started anonymously blogging about our experience because I know God is miraculously providing for us and giving us amazing counsel and I want to share what we have been learning with other adoptive parents. My guess is, you know more than I ever will about parenting hurt children, but just in case you ever need an encouraging voice saying you aren't the only one and reminding you God is able to heal our children, I want to share with you. http://www.thisradmom.com

  26. Hello Katie!
    I am a junior at King's High School in Shoreline, Washington. This June of 2014 I am going on a short term (about 3 week long) mission trip to Uganda and Rwanda and I am beyond excited. The teacher leading our team, Deri Kispert, told me that there might be a chance of making a little detour in our travels to meet you in person. That would mean so much to me, just reading your blog has forced me to recognize that God is SO present in places of desperation and inspired me to look at people through Christ's eyes and not through my own judgement. I understand that we probably would not get to meet any of the children in your program because of their situation but just to talk to you about how God is working in Uganda would be such a great experience. I am praying for Africa as a whole and especially your ministry in Uganda! God is doing such extraordinary things in your life! If you have not already, please consider meeting us in June, it would be a huge blessing for me personally and certainly the rest of our team!

    I am a junior at King's High School in Shoreline, Washington. I am planning on going on a short-term mission trip to Uganda (!) with my school this June of 2014. I am beyond excited to see this amazing country and its people. One of the leaders of our team, Deri Kispert, has mentioned to me that there is a chance of meeting up with you on our way through Uganda. I have started reading you blog and learning about what our AWESOME God has done in your life. I'm not sure if you have been at all involved in planning all of this but selfishly I would LOVE to meet you after reading about your journey in Uganda. It would be such a huge blessing, and I hope that we could bless you as well. I understand that we wouldn't get to meet any of the children in your program and I can totally see why, but to take you out for a meal and share stories would be amazing. I'm not really the person to contact for this, you might have already heard from our leaders, but I just wanted to ask you personally if you would give it some consideration. We know that you have a tight schedule! Thank you so much for sharing such compelling stories straight from His heart.

What a story you have. My mom also suggested that I contact you– would you have need for any help in Africa? Is there any way I could fly over to assist in your work? I'm trying to find a way to Africa, but actually finding a place to stay is rather frustrating. My email: sm1414@messiah.edu. Thank you for everything that you do.

  37. Katie, I read your book in June of 2012 while my husband was in Niger on a mission trip. God touched my heart and I too realized the fact that my God did not ask me to go, but He told me to go. In November of this year, my husband and I returned to Niger . We worked with the Zerma people, an Unreached people group. We were so blessed to be ble to tell His children that they do have a God that loves them. Some had never heard of Jesus, nor had they ever seen a white person. I came back and reread your book. What an impact it had for a second time. Thank you for allowing God to use you. Thank you for being obedient to His call. The orange dirt of Niger will never leave my sandals, and God's children will never leave my heart. I plan to return in 2014 to do as much as I can. ( which I feel is so little) . May God continue to bless you and your precious family. May He continue to enlarge your territory, and may He keep you safe and in His will.
