Jim’s passion to assist women who face unplanned pregnancies dates back to 1990, when he and his late wife, Tami, began their journey to become adoptive parents. That process culminated in the birth of their adopted son to a 14-year-old high school freshman. Jim saw how little help many birth moms have as they face unplanned pregnancies, and believed that God called him to act in faith in using his business skills to assist them.
Jim founded Birthmother Ministries in 1996. His targeted perseverance is the driving force behind the ministry. Future plans include the expansion of Birthmothers into cities throughout the U.S.
Jim is a commercial real estate broker and developer in northern Virginia. His website, www.jamesmichaelcompanies.com, explains how he helps commercial tenants acquire the office space they need while building equity. Jim, his wife Cindy, and his son A.J. reside in Vienna, VA.
