Julian Goodson and his wife Stacey were foster parents for seven years. On their first date, the subject of Foster Parenting came up. When Stacey learned that Julian was open to the idea of being a foster parent, she knew that she would marry him.
Julian and his wife adopted two teenage boys at the age of thirteen and fifteen and also adopted a 14 year old girl. In addition, Julian has two biological children. Throughout the journey, they have fostered a total of eighteen children.
Julian’s commitment to Foster Care led him to make a career change to working with youth as a Youth Development Specialist for Bethany Christian Services. Answering God’s calling, Julian works with Foster Care youth between the ages of fourteen and eighteen. Julian teaches employability skills and leadership development.
Julian also teaches a Teen Outreach Program targeting the truant youth of Kent County. When he is not teaching in the classroom, he is teaching on the basketball court. Julian is passionate about teaching young men and young ladies necessary life-lessons through the game of basketball.
Julian and Stacey’s passion and motivation is to provide youth an opportunity to be the best version of themselves.
