Derek Hamer

Derek Hamer was adopted from Kitale Kenya at the age of 6 after living alone on the streets from the age of 4. He is about to finish his sophomore year in college and looks forward to finishing his degree. He has a heart for justice, for students (intern in student ministries at Overlake Church) and a passion to follow God’s call on his life. He was raised in a multiracial family and feels strongly about helping adoptive parents meet the needs of their children who have been adopted from other countries and cultures.
