Often times, family has nothing to do with a blood relation. It has everything to do with love. It is that simple. Karisa Smith shared the story about her family on Love What Matters, and it has gone viral. Karisa is married to Shane Smith, a soldier. When they got married, both Shane and Karisa were both single parents, they each had a daughter.
Shane met Josalen when she was nine months old, and she will soon be three – they have a special bond. Even though they are not related by blood, Shane treats Josalen as if she was his own.
Karisa shared some pictures of her daughter and husband in her post. Karisa said they don’t use the term “stepfather,” Shane is Josalen’s father.
Karisa said when Shane fell in love with her, he also fell in love with Josalen. His love is so deep that he is in the process of adopting her and will soon officially be her daddy.
