Other Notes

Katie founded Loving Well Living Well as a platform for adoption and foster care advocacy. She saw a gap of misconceptions and apathy among the church body which was the catalyst to form a platform of education to educate believers. Katie writes and speaks about myths, transracial adoption, and trauma in children, birth mother advocacy, open adoption, and various topics on adoption /foster care topics.
