April 20 third Monday Author Series features Barry Henkin

As a child, Barry Henkin faced what seemed like insurmountable odds. When his middle-aged mother gave birth to him, she was unable to care for him. He was placed in foster care and them parents were expected to adopt him. Before he was a year old those foster parents decided against adoption because of Henkin's physical and developmental difficulties. Fortunately for him, another foster couple took him in and encouraged him, leading him to the realization that he had a gift for working with people.
