According to Life & Style magazine the reality star – who is currently in South Africa on a promotional trip – was left “heartbroken” when a friend showed her a photograph of babies at a local orphanage.
“She couldn’t believe that all these beautiful little babies were orphans,” reveals a friend. “Kim was in shock — she just couldn’t believe that none of them had a mom or a dad to love them and tuck them into bed at night. That picture really changed her mind about adoption.”
When she learned that 16 babies are left every day at the Door of Hope orphanage, a “devastated” Kim was spurred to plan a visit with the children there.
“Kim has really come around to the idea that she could raise an orphan as her own child and surround it with the love and family that she grew up with,” her friend continues. “She’s not afraid to be a single mom anymore. She knows she has the money and the support network to raise a baby. Now she just has to find the child that she can be a mother to.”
