“This is US fills the world with the breath of hope.”

Jacquelyn Mitchard

“If every man could understand the heart-warming and life-changing truths David Marin so personally reveals in This is US, America would be a stronger country."

Dr. Meg Meeker
Best-selling author of Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters

 

The father of three children adopted from a witness protection program, single dad David Marin - the author of This is US - explores raising children, schools, social media, and child and teen psychology with nationally known guests.
