I have been married to my classmate, Dori (Slack) Moreland, since 1979. We have 8 children, ranging in age from 32 years to 7 months, and 2 grandchildren. After high school, I spent 6 years in the Army, worked as a deputy sheriff, a police officer and a game warden all over the state of Georgia. Dori and I both worked our way through college and in 1994 we returned home and I became the co-owner and CEO of Georgia Probation Services, Inc. Dori and I have fostered and adopted several children and this has become our life's work and ministry. In 2013 we founded Savannah's Canopy, a ministry to help foster, adoptive, and at risk children, the parents that adopt or foster them and the birth parents of those children.
