Julia DesCarpentrie is passionate about orphan care, adoption and fostering. She has been blessed to live out God’s call on her life in those areas through her work with The CALL (Children of Arkansas Loved for a Lifetime), a foster care church initiative encouraging more Christian families to foster children in need. Julia has been an advocate for the fatherless for 10 years, as both a volunteer and also serving with Hope for Orphans before her work with The CALL. She is also an active volunteer in the community and has served on several community boards. She continues to minister to other mothers and foster/adoptive families through writing and speaking with MomLife Today. Julia is the mom of five children entrusted to her care through birth, adoption and fostering. She and Branden have been married for 16 years.
Instead of a dinner with fine china, I suggested restaurants with big screen televisions and wings. Testosterone and sports. Conversation could wait. He actually chose a hole-in-the-wall diner, but it was his choice. We laughed more during that meal than we had in months. No one was asking to have their food cut up, no milk was spilled and the only interruptions were from the waitress refilling our drinks.
