Adam and Natasha Perryman met at Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, Oklahoma in 1997. Friends for two years, they went on to date for another two years, and married on August 4, 2001. Adam's favorite thing about Natasha is her ability to bring structure to anything, and of course, her stand up comedy. Natasha's favorite thing about Adam is his integrity and constant peace. Over the years, three kiddos have joined their family through the gift of adoption.
Their first child, Avi Joy (meaning My Father's Joy), was born in Vietnam and joined their family in 2006. Avi Joy is anointed with wisdom and the gift of music. They repeated the adoption process through Vietnam, bringing home their son Nehemiah (meaning God's compassion) in 2008. Nehemiah is gifted with a great sense of humor and excellent follow-through. Next, they pursued an out-of-birth-order adoption through the state of Oklahoma, eventually bringing home their older daughter Karrington (meaning Cared for by God) in 2010. Karrington loves to travel and is an amazing teacher.
Since 2012, the Perryman family has loved on over twenty foster children and can say with certainty that adoption and foster care has been the making of their lives. It has showed them the depth of Jesus' love more than any other experience.
Adam earned his Bachelors of Business Administration in Accounting from NSU. He enjoys volleyball, eating exotic foods and hanging out with his wife and three kids. Natasha holds a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Education from NSU and is in her fifth year of homeschooling. She enjoys organizing, family time, painting murals, cutting hair and eating Nutella. They make their home in Tulsa, Oklahoma, but are no less attached to their home away from home in Jinja, Uganda where they serve as missionaries.
