East Tennessee Family Welcomes Home Fourth Adopted Child

An east Tennessee family welcomed home their fourth adopted child this last week.

“Katie and Jonathan Addington have three biological children and three adopted children. Monday morning, the Addington family officially became a family of nine, adopting a daughter. The couple says they began as foster parents, knowing there was a need for loving families.”

Katie Addington describes their foster care experience: “Just go for it; it’s not scary. Had we been afraid of doing foster care, or fostering older kids or teenagers, we wouldn’t have our daughter. And she’s awesome.”
