"This story embodies the concept that love is love –
it is pure and it is real....
There are lessons to be learned about acceptance, about bullying, and most importantly about love. After all, isn’t that what we all seek more than anything else – love and acceptance?
"

~ Greg Louganis

 

An Orphan No More: The True Story of a Boy: chapter one celebrates the concept that love is love. Rodney has long dreamed of being a parent. Although he is told that he cannot be a parent alone, fate has much more in store. Rodney discovers that a selfless act of protection actually becomes his first step toward fatherhood.

Little Jordy, an orphaned duckling, has discoveries of his own: he learns the meaning of love, of family, and what it's like to feel the pain of being different. Through a bedtime story, Jordy learns of his namesake, a little boy named Jordan, who was also orphaned as a baby. Will similar beginnings lead to similar fates? Only time will tell.

Jerry Windle served as an officer in the United States Navy. His travels and studies made him intimately familiar with the culture of the Cambodian people; their plight following the Vietnam War and the terror they endured during the reign of the Khmer Rouge. "We have all heard of the stories of the Killing Fields of Cambodia", Jerry laments. "What we don't always see is the lingering devastation." There are thousands of orphaned children in Cambodia. Without living relatives, these children of Cambodia are left to survive on their own, or prayerfully, taken into an orphanage. Jerry adopted his son, "Pisey", whom he named Jordan Pisey, when he was 18 months old. Sickly and suffering from malnutrition, scabies, intestinal parasites and severe urinary and upper respiratory infections, little Jordan slowly began to flourish with medical care, nutrition and love. By the time he was 3 years old, Jerry noticed that his little boy had a natural propensity for sports. "He was amazingly agile, and had an uncanny awareness of his body in space". When he was only 7 years old, Jordan attended a summer camp at the Fort Lauderdale Swimming and Diving Hall of Fame Aquatic Complex in Florida. Tim O'Brien, the son of Greg Louganis' Olympic Diving Coach, Dr. Ron O'Brien, headed the Fort Lauderdale Diving Program. He recognized something special in Jordan immediately. He spoke with Jerry and encouraged him to enroll Jordan in his diving lessons program.

Jordan immediately took to diving; his progression was unheard of -- nearly. Greg Louganis had a similar progression in the sport. Within 6 months he was competing on the team. At 10 years old, he won his first Jr. National Diving Championship Title. At 11, he was selected to the Jr. Elite Program, and invited to move to Indianapolis to train with 2008 Olympic Diving Head Coach, and Director of the USA Diving National Training Center, John Wingfield--one of the most successful diving coaches in history. Within 6 months of training under John Wingfield, Jordan, at 12 years old, qualified for, and will be the youngest diver, to compete at the 2012 USA Diving Olympic Trials in Seattle, Washington.

Jerry and Jordan's desire to share their story and to inspire people to embrace diversity, celebrate love, and honor family has culminated in this story of hope, acceptance, faith and family. The first in a series of books, readers will be inspired by the unconditional love Rodney has for his little duckling. Based on the real-life story of Jordan Pisey Windle, "An Orphan No More: the true story of a boy" will leave you smiling, inspired and wanting to reach for the next chapter in this amazing series.
