Can a single act of love have global impact? Robert Benson's answer is "yes." In 1968, his life was changed when an ordinary couple took him home from a children's shelter in California. Over the next fifty years, the reverberations reached around the world and changed hundreds more, as Robert sought to help other abused and abandoned children. That is the principle behind Love Forward.
