Tuesday night, four-year-old Katharine Alexander was kissed onstage by the President of the United Staes in front of millions watching online and on television.
She was wearing a glittery pink dress.
How did this little adopted girl of a interracial couple end up in the arms of the president in front of a national television audience? The story is a beautiful one.
Lisa and Bruce Alexander already have three of their own children. However, they felt “compelled by the Holy Spirit” to adopt late into their parenting years. After what the couple refers to as a “miracle” happened, they were able to adopt Katharine Alexander, days after her birth.
“We had wanted to adopt, but we were both nearing our 50s,” the couple told The Daily Caller.
The couple described how they watched younger couples get calls for adoption and had essentially given up hope. Then, out off the blue, they received a call from their adoption agency.
“We were speechless,” Mr. Alexander said, “A lot of things lined up that were not coincidence. It was meant to be.”
