A Friend On The Porch

Children’s book illustrated and designed by deb hoeffner
Written by Kelley Merritt
Hearts are softened as storytelling strengthens an unspoken bond between eight-year-old Michael and his friend on the porch. The man helps the young boy build memories that make him proud when he has a son of his own. In return, the friend finds happiness as he learns to dream through the eyes of others. The bond between the man and the young boy is a story about making a difference — the story of A Friend on the Porch.
