An Invisible Thread tells of the life-long
friendship between a busy sales executive and a disadvantaged young
boy, and how both of their lives were changed by what began as one
small gesture of kindness.
When Laura Schroff brushed by a young panhandler on a New York City
corner one rainy afternoon, something made her stop and turn back.
She took the boy to lunch at the McDonald's across the street that
day. And she continued to go back, again and again for the next
four years until both their lives had changed dramatically. Nearly
thirty years later, that young boy, Maurice, is married and has his
own family. Now he works to change the lives of disadvantaged kids,
just like the boy he used to be.
An Invisible Thread
is the true
story of the bond between a harried sales executive and an
eleven-year-old boy who seemed destined for a life of poverty. It
is the heartwarming story of a friendship that has spanned three
decades and brought meaning to an over-scheduled professional and
hope to a hungry and desperate boy living on the streets.
