About Us

David and Jayne Schooler’s journey into the world of foster care and adoption began with a simple question from a 14 year old boy. "Would you become my foster parents?"

Agreeing to become foster parents in 1978, set the course for life experiences that continue today.  The Schooler’s served as foster parents from 1978 to 1986 with Warren County (Ohio) Children Services. In 1983, they adopted their son, Ray, who was 16 years old. Ray is now 44, their birth daughter, Kristy is 34 and also an adoption advocate.

Jayne's passion for over 25 years has been the training and education of adoption and foster care professionals and families.  She has been been a featured speaker at numerous state, national and international conferences and trains regularly for the Ohio Child Welfare Training Program.  She is the author/co-author of seven books in the adoption field, including her newest, Wounded Children, Healing Homes: How Traumatized Children Impact Adoptive and Foster Parents.

Sharing in pastoral ministry with her husband, Dr. David Schooler, they have pastored in Missouri and Ohio for over 35 years. They are both active in international ministries as part of their work with LAMb International in Kyrgyzstan, Poland and Ukraine.

The Schooler's live in Ohio and enjoy their three grandchildren.
