Personal life[edit]

John, his wife Josee, and their eight children currently reside in Georgia.[13]

John and Josee are currently expecting baby number nine, a boy. Their three most recent additions were the reward of a long, heartfelt adventure with adoption. The siblings, Max, Anya, and Olga, came from Ukraine as a result of God leading John to adopting "Anna" (Anya) through signs and dreams. [14]

"John and Josee Waller, who live in Coweta County, had two children visit in their home this past summer through the Project One Forty Three program. Max, 14, and his sister, Anya, 9, came from Ukraine to spend several weeks with the Wallers, who decided to adopt them." Concert to benefit Ukraine adoption At the time of the host, John and Josee were not aware of the third sibling. It was not until they decided to adopt Anya and Max that they learned of Olga, who had been separated from her brother and sister for 7 years. The Waller family was able to reunite these long-separated siblings and bring them together, under God.[15]


Waller was named one of 10 "Faces to Watch" by Billboard in 2007.[2]
