Opening Doors, Minds, and Hearts

The video linked below touched and inspired me. My hope is that it does the same for you.

Love Russ

About russtowne

I'm awed by the beauty of nature and the power of love and gratitude. Some of my favorite sensory experiences include waves crashing on rocky shores, waterways in ancient redwood and fern-filled forests, and rain. My wife and I have been married since 1979. We have 3 adult children and 5 grandchildren. I manage a wealth management firm that I founded in 2003. My Beloved is a Special Education teacher for Kindergartners and First Graders. I'm a published author of approximately 60 books in a variety of genres for grownups and children.

    Being given an opportunity to start fresh with no past history can be a powerful thing. Kudos to his mother for giving him a chance to have a new start…Josh made a new and beautiful life with it. That has got to be the best acknowledgement a child can give a parent. Thanks for sharing!

  5. That’s what the schools need…. one of their own, relating to them at a level they understand…. It’s a wonderful story… Diane

  6. Thank you Russ, for sharing Josh’s story. THank you Josh for showing such courage and grace.
