Erika Alman- I am a wife, a mom to three biological daughters and two adopted daughters, and a lover of Jesus and people. Over thirteen years of marriage, my husband, Daniel and I have had thirteen children placed in our home through foster care. I am the cofounder of We Will Speak, a nonprofit that works with aged out foster youth. Currently, I work as a foster home developer. My passion is starting conversations about needs within the orphan care community and helping every person discover how they can positively impact kids who are so worthy of our work and sacrifice.
Jocelyn Hattenberger- I am a foster and adoptive mom of 4- three who have been adopted and one who will be adopted this year, who has been fostering for 10 years and had 17 amazing children come through my home. I help run a foster and adoptive family closet called The Moses Closet which provides supplies, clothing and welcome baskets to kids coming home for adoption or into the foster system. Once a month, we hold a Fellowship Group to connect the families we serve through The Moses Closet and offer support and prayer.
Lisa Johnson- I have been married to my wonderful husband, Rodney, for 15 years. I am a mom to seven kids, three of which I birthed and four who were brought in through the foster care system. Our family has been licensed to foster and adopt through the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services for eight years. Currently, I lead a ministry that focuses on meeting the needs of foster/adoptive and kinship families. Our ministry has also recently partnered with the TXDFPS to provide support to their Youth Services Center.
Lisa Lackey-My husband, Kyle, and I have been married for 11 years and have two boys. We adopted our youngest from foster care last year. Through our journey, I fell in love with this amazing foster and adoptive community. I feel like these people are the best kind of people! During the day, I teach 6th grade in The Woodlands. On the side, I have the privilege of planning Foster and Adoptive Parents’ Night Outs with my husband through our church and The Orphan Care Network.
Meg Martinez- I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Osvaldo, for twenty-one years. I am a mom of four teens and work full-time as an instructional coach in our local school district. Blessed by the love and support of others through our international adoption from Ethiopia, it is my passion and privilege to share Christ's love and hope with other mommas who have grown their families through adoption. I am thankful for butter, Downy Wrinkle Release, and Jesus's saving grace.
Courtney Moore-I've been married to my best friend Daniel for 11 years and we have 3 crazy and awesome kids. Our son, now 6, came to us through the foster care system and we have 2 bio daughters ages 4 and 2. Our hearts and lives were changed forever when we entered the world of fostering in 2011, and I am passionate about sharing our journey and God's heart for the orphan. I love connecting with other adoptive and foster Moms- specifically those with kids that have special needs. When I'm not carpooling my kiddos around to school, therapy and play dates, you can find me with my camera photographing adoptions, families and weddings!
