Sandy is a mom of 4 kids – James (11), Haylie (13), Raider (26) and his wife Jennifer. She has been married to her best friend, Micah, for 20 years. Sandy has been deeply active in children’s ministry all of her life, starting in the 6th grade when she regularly volunteered her lunch recess to help in the special needs classes. That's when God planted a seed in her heart for loving and serving others. Throughout middle school and high school she served in the children’s areas of women’s shelters, and in college she launched a weekly Sunday School ministry for kids in the low-income housing area of downtown Sacramento. God used this ministry to create a passion in her for fatherless children. Early in their marriage Micah and Sandy felt called to become foster parents and they were placed with a 12-year old boy, Raider, who was looking to be adopted. God called them further into orphan care ministry and Sandy has worked over the past 10 years to help launch church orphan ministries and other foster care related programs, including Safe Families, which allowed Micah and Sandy to host additional children in their home. Sandy feels blessed to have found her passion and God’s call on her life to "defend the cause of the fatherless."
