He also has a twin sister Marlee who was born on April 29, 2002, at 11:57 am. Similar to Moses, Marlee also had a different moniker, initially. She was Makayla. Marlee is now a musician.

As for his education, McKeehan attended Franklin Christian Academy.

Moses McKeehan Is The Adopted Son Of TobyMac

TobyMac and his wife Amanda adopted Moses and his sister Marlee in 2002. The couple said adoption was a God-ordained process rather than a calculated decision. As such they were praying for another pregnancy and even asking God for twins. It was some random woman at a church who asked them if they’d ever considered adopting. Amanda and TobyMac took it as an answer to their prayers.

Moses McKeehan’s Biological Parents

TobyMac hasn’t said much about Moses and his sister’s biological parents. However, according to Life Defenders, Moses’ birth mother goes by the name, Jina. In the article, Moses’ biological mother says she was seeing Moses’ biological father during the 9/11 incident.

They apparently never married. Moses’ birth mother at the time was living with her mother in Norfolk, Virginia. She was already a mother of two and a single mother. Jina said she was 20 when she became pregnant with Moses and his sister. While she never mentioned the name of the biological father, she revealed he was also young and he, too, was a father of one boy with another woman. In fact, he was about to welcome one more with his then-girlfriend.

As Jina was already a single mother and the biological father of Moses and his sister, too, was a father on his own, she decided to put her next two children up for adoption.

Right after the birth, Moses and Marlee spent a week in the special care nursery. Jina stated she regretted her decision to put her children up for adoption and later decided to bring them back to her. But after failing to care for them, she reversed her thought and sent them once again for adoption.

After giving Moses and Marlee to TobyMac and Amanda, Jina continued to see her biological children through photos, videos, and even visits. Jina now works in activism. She spreads awareness of adoption and informs women seeking abortion that they have life-affirming options available to them.
