This Viral Video Shows the Raw and Beautiful Parts of the Adoption Process

It’s been a little over a year since Genesis Media Solutions posted Matt and Katie’s moving adoption story. It’s been passed around the internet ever since and collectively has over five millions views. This couple’s beautiful story has been an inspiration to many.


Adoption is an emotional process for everyone involved. This story shows some of the more raw moments — from waiting, to telling family and friends, to finally being together as a little family of three.

While adoptive parents like Matt and Katie are heroes, it’s also so important to remember the heroes on the other side who make adoption possible, especially birthmothers.

In a culture that sells abortion as freedom, women who choose life and place their children up for adoption are an incredible example of selflessness and sacrifice.

3 out of 5 post-abortive women said they were pressured into their abortions. This pressure could take the form of unsupportive families and partners, a lack of resources, and a profit driven abortion industry.

According to Planned Parenthood’s most recent annual report, the organization provided 323,999 abortions and only 2,024 adoption referrals. That means for every 160 abortions performed, only 1 adoption referral was given.

With women facing this kind of pressure and a society that frames abortion as glorified “women’s rights,” it’s vital that we celebrate adoption stories like this and acknowledge the sacrifice and love it takes from everyone involved.

We hope this article enlightened and inspired you to stand up for life.

Despite the overturning of Roe v. Wade, abortions are still prevalent in our nation. As a response to the overturning, the media: from the news to entertainment sources to even political figures and celebrities, have pushed abortion as an ongoing agenda, shaping the way this generation thinks and acts. Misinformation is being spread every day, and people are sadly believing the lies.

Our articles and stories aim to tell one thing: the truth.

We know that it is both a blessing and a challenge to understand the reality of abortion, because knowledge incites belief, and belief incites action. But we’re in this together. We believe that we can make abortion unthinkable.

With your support, we look forward to a future where young women are empowered to fight for their own rights: a right to bring life into the world, to be fearless leaders, to be examples of hope, strength, and undeterred resilience. We look forward to a future where life can happen.

If this article strengthened your belief to reach women everywhere with the truth and to let life happen, then please consider helping us extend our reach by making a gift right now. Your gift of just $10 or $20 helps our mission to create a story of hope and empowerment for every woman facing an unplanned pregnancy.

We aim to create a culture that views “pro-life” as equivalent to having empathy and compassion, providing holistic care (before and beyond pregnancy) and education, and most importantly, choosing to speak and act in love. We are pro-life, pro-love, pro-woman, pro-solution.

Don’t just be part of the movement, be part of the solution, and give today.
