Jerry Windle had wanted to be a father for as long as he could remember — and then he heard about a little boy who needed a forever home.

One day, he recalls, “I started thumbing through a magazine and there was a story in there of a man who adopted a child from Cambodia, and it didn’t mention a mother.” “The story went on to talk about the close relationship between the father and his son, and something kind of clicked in my head … The article listed (the number of an adoption service) and so I called the number and I said ‘I just read an article, is it possible for a single person to adopt a child?’ and they said ‘Yes, it is.'” Months later, he held a very sick little boy in his arms at a Cambodian orphanage.
