The adoption agency was shut down when a couple learned a haunting truth from their adopted child.
In 2015, Adam and Jessica Davis adopted Namata, from Uganda. The 5-year-old little girl was brought to the U.S. by European Adoption Consultants (EAC), as reported by Good Fullness.
The EAC told the Ohio couple, who already had four children of their own, that Namata's father had passed away and her mother neglected her so badly.
Adam and Jessica believed that their adopted girl was a victim of abuse and her parents have turned their backs on her education. They also believed that her parents didn't keep her well nourished.
The Davis’s was willing to do anything to rectify this for Namata and they wanted to give her a better life.
Six months later, everything changed for the family and the adopted girl.
When Namata learned to speak English, she told Jessica that she wasn't an orphan and that she had a family in Uganda.
The little girl said she loved her family very much and that she missed her real mother, who would walk her to school each day.
What Namata revealed shocked Adam and Jessica to the core. They later found out that they weren't the only family who’d received such horrifying news.
The couple could hardly believe they’d taken Namata away from a loving home.
Jessica told CNN: “The only trauma this child ever experienced was because we essentially placed an order for a child. She was home and happy with her mother, until they selected her for us.”
The couple realized that everything the European Adoption Consultants adoption agency has told them were lies. They then decided to return Namata to her mother.
With the help of Keren Riley, who runs a group called Reunite Uganda, the little girl and the mother were reunited.
Meanwhile, the EAC was shut down permanently by the State Department.
