|Katie with her adoptive family - 2012|
Katie, born February 28, 2003, was injured in a tragic vehicle accident near Salmon Arm, BC, on January 7, 2005 that killed her father, the Rev. Kris Davidson, her mother Sheryl, and sister Lauren (9). The family were much-loved members of the Haney congregation -- Kris was ordained and inducted as our minister in March 2004, serving until his death in January 2005.
Katie has been adopted by her mother’s brother’s family in Calgary. Prior to the accident she was under medical care for a pre-existing serious heart condition that had been diagnosed before her first birthday.
In December 2012 she had a left craniotomy to try and alleviate a problem caused by injury during the accident, and doctors are pleased at what the surgery has accomplished.
Katie continues to be supported in prayer by our congregation, and we look forward to receiving and sharing further reports of her progress.
