JT Olson

Founder, Author & Executive Director of Both Hands


After being orphaned as a child alongside his four siblings, JT Olson went on to start a faith-based non-profit serving orphans and widows. Olson’s personal tragedy gave him an overwhelming understanding of the need to find loving homes for the world’s orphaned children and inspired his family’s life-altering decision to adopt a little girl from China. His powerful story shows God’s transformation of pain into passion, the joy found through adoption and the value of every life.
