Imagine a classroom where you’re encouraged to learn and explore the world without limits, no matter the circumstances. Now meet Ivan, a six-year old child who was diagnosed with fetal alcohol syndrome, a disorder that can cause developmental delays in young children. His adoptive parents were concerned with supporting his development and sought out ways to facilitate healthy growth for their new child.

Jordan Miranda, a dear friend and valued colleague, passed away on February 29. It is a tragic loss for the El Pomar family and he will be deeply missed. Several weeks prior, Jordan wrote this blog post, “Under the Etruscan Sun.” We share it in his memory, as a reminder of his character and wisdom and a model for living our lives.
When we make a mistake, many of us rely on the support of family, friends, and mentors to help us learn from the experience and recover. This has been the business of Denver nonprofit Friends for Youth since 1998.
