Lee Anne Cooper, founder & Executive director
Lee and her husband Eddie founded King’s Ranch as a children’s home in 2007 and experienced firsthand the miracle of adoption when adding their two youngest children to their family in 2015. But Lee’s passion for caring for vulnerable children began years before with the Lord calling her to follow Him wherever He would lead, and then breaking her heart for the plight of the orphan. Using various childhood development experts and child psychology professionals, the Lord equipped her to parent each child coming to live at the Ranch, all of whom had experienced previous failed adoptions due to the effects of developmental trauma. Having authored Unplowed Ground in 2017, Lee now shares with adoptive families what the Lord has taught her from her years of experience with rescued children. Lee works tirelessly to equip forever families. Her passion is that every child know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that he or she has a place they belong.
