Dr. David and Jayne Schooler began the journey into the world of foster care and adoption in 1978, with a simple question by a youth in their church. “Would you become my foster parents?” They answered yes and that changed the direction of their lives.
David has served in the pastoral and counseling ministry for over 40 years. Much of his current focus is on working with adults who have a lifetime impact of early childhood trauma. Both David and Jayne are recognized nationally and internationally as speakers/trainers in the field of adoption and foster care, working with Back2Back and partnering with LAMb International, and Orphan’s Promise.
Jayne is the author/co-author of six books in field of child welfare including her newest: Wounded Children, Healing Homes: How Traumatized Children Impact Adoptive and Foster Parents. Their international work takes them regularly to Ukraine, Kyrgyzstan, Poland, Mexico and Haiti. Recently, two of her books have been translated into Russian and Polish. David and Jayne are parents by birth and adoption and grandparents of four.
