Multiple 3rd Place: Heather Rousseau/The Roanoke Times

Leslie Jordan often reads a book in the evenings to 23-year-old Khamani Jones. The story on May 21 was about dinosaurs, one of KhamaniÕs favorite toys. He moved in with Leslie and Kevin Jordan two years ago when she agreed to foster adults with autism through Lutheran Family ServicesÕ home caregiver program. Khamani could do very little for himself before the Jordans began teaching him how to help in the kitchen, take out the trash, make his bed and eat healthier foods.
