Jim is the adoptive father of 5. He and his wife adopted each of their kids individually about 30-35 years ago here in north Texas through the foster care system. The children came at different ages (3 months to 15 years old) and from diverse backgrounds. They have all now made it to adulthood, educating Jim in the process.
Other education includes an MA in Counseling from Dallas Baptist University and four years working with the TCU Institute of Child Development.
