Meet your Coordinator
Wayne and his wife, Denise, have 3 biological children: Kristina, Samantha, and James. They also have 4 adopted children: Audryna, Jaycob (adopted in 2012), and Brayden, and Alana (adopted in 2023), and 1 Granddaughter - Kairi. They have been fostering for 20 years and have seen over 55 children pass through their doors during that time. They have a passion for children and fostering and doing what is right for them. Their motto has always been “Love them while you have them”! Wayne has been involved with youth from a very young age – from being a Youth Leader, Camp Counselor, and Camp Instructor to a Sunday School Teacher. Wayne is also passionate about the deaf. He learned sign language at the age of 15, and that became a career for him with interpreting for the deaf in the educational setting. Wayne is now retired but loves serving children and serving God. Wayne says, "It’s always amazes me how God moves mountains for us!"
