On Your Feet Foundation
Cordan James has served on the Board of On Your Feet Foundation and a speaker in the series Activism In Adoption.
Cordan is a voice laced with truth and a mesmerizing cadence that brings you back to self. He inspires the feeling of being totally submerged underwater, ears sensitive to your own heartbeat, and completely aware that being consumed isn’t so bad when you can see your way to the surface. Cordan’s voice, life, and mission is all about giving children hope for the future they dream of and reminding adults that it’s never too late to manifest the fearless imaginings of their childhood.

On Your Feet Foundation provides the care and support birthparents deserve, in order to heal and thrive."
