|Galon helps Adopted and Foster Children
When you write a book, you are never sure where the book is going or what impact it could have on others. Galon
the Northern Pintail Duck is about a duck who was raised by the local animals around a pond. His parents were
chased off by a dog, so he has no idea who they are or if he resembled them in any way. Was he the same color? Did he
have the same markings? Many days he would look towards the sky to see if they would return to the pond. The story
came to me while I was at the family pond one day and I watched a pair of ducks swimming in the water, while a
turtle was floating not far away. There was a native member of the woods, a red tail hawk, flying over the pond
watching everything going on. She would fly over me while I was mowing on a regular basis and then move out into
the field area looking for lunch.
This particular day I happened to have a notebook with me in the truck, and I pulled it out, to mapping out the
story. After that, the story just seemed to flow in the direction it was meant to go. The story came to me while I was at
the family pond one day and I watched a pair of ducks swimming in the water, while a turtle was floating not far
away. There was a family member of the woods, a red tail hawk, flying over the pond watching everything going on.
She would fly over me while I was mowing on a regular basis and then move out into the field area looking for lunch.
Galon has traveled all over the world with his story. Kids of all ages have read the book, and until recently I didn't
realize the length of which Galon's wings reached. I found there is a need for him in the adoption and foster children's
worlds. He is something the children can relate to as they wonder about their parents or where they belong in the new
family structure where they have been placed. Today, I received an email from an organization who have children
seeking out their natural parents, and they wanted to use Galon the Northern Pintail Duck for their clients.
A little duck who started out at a pond nestled in a woods, outside a little town in Ohio has become part of a
wonderful experience for many people. We knew Galon would be part of a bigger picture though and we created
Galon's Children to help raise money for children all over. The money will be used to help feed those in need, furnish
teddy bears or books, and anything else we hear that's missing in a child's life. Today, Galon's Children sent an
autographed book to an organization in California that helps abused children. Hopefully, Galon will bring some joy
to children as they read his story.
