Since Eric and Rosemary Stanley became Mentors in 2007, their house has been full. If you live in the Stanley home you are family—whether you are their biological daughter, two adopted daughters or their two foster sons; whether you have a feeding tube, are in a wheelchair, or are nonverbal. Eric and Rosemary’s secret behind their children’s progress and success is time. They rely on the smiles they receive from their children to give them energy to keep doing what they do so well.
Watch Eric and Rosemary accept their 2012 Ripple of Hope Award and be honored alongside their fellow winners in St. Paul at the Minnesota History Center.
