"Them Before Us" has flipped the script on adult-centric attitudes toward marriage, parenthood, and reproductive technologies by framing these issues around a child's right to be raised by both their mother and father.

Katy Faust is Founder and Director of Them Before Us. She received her undergraduate degree in Political Science and Asian Studies at St. Olaf College and then received a Fulbright scholarship to Taiwan. Her fluency in Mandarin assisted her when she worked with the largest Chinese adoption agency in the world.

Katy publishes widely on the rights of children and is a regular contributor at The Federalist. Katy is the Washington State leader for the grassroots marriage movement CanaVox, and currently appears in their video series, "Dear Katy." She is married to a pastor and mother of four children, the youngest of whom is adopted from China.

In 2012 Katy began writing about why marriage is a matter of social justice for kids. Her articles/interviews have appeared in USA Today, Public Discourse, LifeSite News, The Federalist, The Daily Signal, and on The Eric Metaxas Show,Breakpoint, and ABC Australia. She has filed three amicus briefs supporting children’s rights and advocated on behalf of children with lawmakers in the US and abroad as well as at the United Nations.

This is an audio podcast of The Dr J Show. Full video episode is available here, with readings and resources.
