James On His Own

Produced by

James on his own

Like similar agencies in most states, Georgia's Division of Family and Children Services aims to reduce the number of kids in foster care and keep family members together. But James Morrow's experience with foster care was a nightmare. He returned home but eventually dropped out of high school and shortly after, his family was evicted.

James is now living with a friend. He says if the state knew where he was, it might put him in a foster home - or at least make him quit his job and go back to school. As he tells Dick Gordon, he feels like his life is finally on the right track. James joins his employer, Dianne Reinhardt, in talking about how learning the trade of baking is helping him learn how to take care of himself.

Your Story - Seeing The Queen

Harry Atwood was recovering from a disfiguring soccer accident when his wife told him Queen Elizabeth and the Queen Mother were right next door at a little theatre. Against his better judgment, Harry climbed the stairwell to street level to get a better view. To Harry's horror, the royals caught a glimpse of Harry's face and were visibly repelled. Harry talks with Dick about how he'll never forget the Queen's expression at that instant.
