“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13

Sweet Katie just celebrated her 10th birthday. It’s our prayer that this will be the last birthday she spends without a forever family!

Our team met this vibrant, loving girl in August in Colombia! We spent an afternoon with her, learning dance moves and practicing our Spanish by singing “Let It Go”! Katie is friendly and outgoing and warmed to our team instantly. She loved performing for us and when she got a little shy, she quickly overcame it by drawing us into her performance! She loved teaching us new dances moves (Reggaeton is her favorite!) and the words to all her favorite songs.

Katie has a beautiful zest for life and enjoys sharing her passions with everyone around her. This sweet girl is very social and while she has lots of friends her age, she especially loves jumping rope with her best friend, Sarah.

Katie is also a hard worker and is making amazing progress at school and in speech therapy! Katie attends a special education school and loves computer class, PE, and sports! Her teachers are very impressed with how well behaved she is and with her advancements—especially with reading!

Katie is so full of joy and hope in spite of all she’s been through. Katie shared with us that it’s her dream is to have a mom and dad that love her unconditionally! Sadly, Katie has never had a stable home life and she aches for the stability and love of a family.

We can’t wait to see what’s possible for her with a family’s love! See Katie in action here.
