Meet Your Host

Adoption, foster care, and advocacy were not part of Jami’s dreams for her life, but God changed her heart when He made her aware, and she is passionate about helping others become aware too! She and her husband Clint are parents to their seven children (five through adoption). In 2011, Jami founded The Forgotten Initiative and serves as its Executive Director.

We love hearing from you!
