It is my pleasure and honor to be marrIed to the Founder of COCI, Juli Hall. As her husband, I have had the opportunity to experience up close, the dedication not only of my wife to making a difference in the lives of children in desperate situations around the world, but also of the extraordinary Team of volunteers and colleagues who continually dedicate themselves to creating possibility for these children in a world where no possibility existed. I oftentimes think of how COCI got started, because Juli happened to watch a report on television of the kids in Romania who were the victims of a government program gone bad, and we're left with AIDS and abandoned by their families. How she said to herself, this isn't right and someone needs to do something about it, and then realized if it wasn't her, then who? So she went to Romania and met the children, and COCI was born. It has me remember that it only takes one person making a decision to make a difference in the world for the world to transform. It doesn't happen overnight, but once the momentum has begun, it's impossible to stop. My wife is an inspiration to me daily, as are all of the amazing individuals who have dedicated themselves to COCI and to making the world a better place for children everywhere. Come join us in whatever way you can. Experience what it means to make a difference. Be inspired. Be an inspiration.
