PASSIONATELY SERVING CHILDREN & BUILDING LOVING FAMILIES
God commanded his people to defend and bring justice to the cause of the fatherless (Isaiah 1:17). My wife answered God's call to adopt in 1998. We shared it with our church and started a movement. Now, my passion is to lend my expertise to every church so that we all can do our part to build strong families and eradicate the need for a foster care system in our country as we answer God's call to pure religion by caring for orphaned children (James 1:27).
