Summary
Laura Schroff was a successful ad sales rep living and working in Manhattan. Maurice was a homeless, eleven-year-old panhandler on the street. He asked for spare change; she kept walking. But then something stopped her in her tracks, and she turned around and went back. And she continued to go back, again and again. They met nearly every week for years and built an unexpected friendship that has today spanned almost three decades, bringing life to an over-scheduled professional and hope to a hungry and desperate boy
