Acorn People is – full of challenges and conquering, rich in both the happy and the tragic, and along with the author, Ron Jones, a catalyst for much self-reflection and awareness!

A true story, The Acorn People gives us an “insider’s” perspective into the lives of some truly handicapped, yet beautiful young people who have a rare opportunity to be “normal.” We glean insight into life from their side, their parents’ side, and that of those who work closely with them.

A short read, a powerful voice, and eyes that see for us or alongside us, this is a gripping tale of the power of love and friendship mixed with a lot of patience, kindness, and perseverance.
