Jerry and Jodi Jackson Tucker had adopted an infant due to infertility, but at the time they knew nothing about the global orphan crisis. Then, God brought them into a church that was passionate about orphan care. Jodi took a trip to Uganda with that church, and it changed their lives forever.
Jodi and Jerry now have nine children, six through adoption. They have adopted both domestically and internationally, and been foster parents. And Jodi serves as the International Director of Orphan Sunday at the Christian Alliance for Orphans.
Tune in to the latest episode of Adopting Hope to hear about the ways that God has revolutionized Jodi’s life by igniting a passion for orphan care within her both at home and at work.
