One Simple Wish

Unexpected kindness is the most powerful, least costly, and most underrated agent of human change. Kindness that catches us by surprise brings out the best in our natures.

One Simple Wish

When Danielle Gletow adopted her daughter Mia, she began to learn about the American foster care system — and the challenges faced by more than 100,000 children and young adults who are part of it.
