Johnson, a former high school English teacher, spoke of the many experiences in raising a family of six – three biological and three adopted from China, where he and his wife, Tammy, lived for some time running a Coffee Shop and doing Missionary work.

They have lived in three countries, and six states in the U.S. and now reside in Oswego.

His main focus of his program was adoption and all the trials and
tribulations that you can encounter.

His latest endeavor was writing and publishing a book titled “Lily was the Valley…undone by adoption,”  which is about his experience with his first adopted daughter.

He feels adoption is like Rotary’s Service Above Self.

The Fulton Sunrise Rotary meets every Friday at 7 a.m. at Mimi’s.
