The remarkable true story of a town that's changing lives, by making dreams come true...

At first, Hope Meadows, Illinois looks like any other rural small town neighborhood. But this little village of big miracles is unique. The brainchild of a determined sociologist, it is built on an abandoned Air Force base for a single purpose: to create a solution to the problem of revolving-door foster care. Here are children given up by impoverished mothers; children of drug addicts, prisoners, and prostitutes; children who had never been taught the importance of responsibility, school, or the basics of human interaction. Here "unadoptable" children are given the chance to thrive in permanent homes.

At Hope Meadows, seniors find a renewed sense of purpose as foster grandparents. Their spirits are lifted, renewed and enriched as they give unconditional love and commitment to the children they have come to care for so deeply.

One of the most remarkable stories ever told, Hope Meadows will be an inspiration to everyone who reads it. A book to share with friends and loved ones, it is a tribute to the resilience of the human spirit, and a very special town built from the heart up.
