Dr. Ross Porter is the Founder and Executive Director of Stillpoint Family Resources, a nonprofit organization that has touched countless lives through counseling, education, healing and hope.
When Dr. Ross Porter created Stillpoint Family Resources, he intended it to serve families of special needs children as a source of understanding for the challenges and blessings to come. Later, Stillpoint would grow into an organization offering support to any families, couples or individuals who needed it.
Dr. Porter is also a published author, and his book “Hidden Graces” offers deeper insight into the emotions and experiences that prompted Stillpoint’s creation.
Hidden Graces was written by Dr. Porter and his wife about life with John Michael Porter, their first child who was born with Down syndrome.
The following is an excerpt from Hidden Graces, as seen on the Stillpoint Family Resources blog by Dr. Ross Porter: “John Michael Porter, miracle, mystery, perfect gift of God was born with strawberry-blonde hair, blue eyes, and 47 chromosomes. In addition, he had two major heart malformations and needed his first heart procedure at three days old to save his life.”
