Our Story 

iamJ3 was started in 2012 out of Brent & Ashlee's wait for a referral to bring their son home from Ethiopia. They began their adoption in March of 2011, submitted their paper work to Ethiopia in October of 2011 and brought their son home in July of 2015. They have 3 sons and 1 daughter.

In early 2012 they started iamJ3, and spent a year promoting other organizations that were supporting orphans and widows. They started searching the internet, talking with family and friends, and trying to find out and get close to anything that was about adoption.  What they found was so much more.  This was bigger than them, bigger than their adoption.  In early 2013 they changed directions to orphan care locally and globally.  Through the last three years we have focused more on our local foster care community. We have a great working relationship with our local DSS and other private agencies that work in foster care in our area. 

In 2016 we moved to our new and current location, on the square in Uptown Lexington above Perfect Blend Coffee Shop.  Our community of supporters has been more than generous.  We now provide each child who enters foster care with a $100.00 Gift card, a clothing bag with three new outfits, socks, underwear, blanket, Bible and also a comfort bag that has the necessary hygiene items.

We are normal, messy people trying to bring HOPE and LOVE on our journey in life and we would love for you to join us.
