Diver Jordan Windle writes children's book with one of his two dads

Jordan Windle is an Olympic diving hopeful and now author of his first children's book, 'An Orphan No More' - Andres Rodriguez

'An Orphan No More' tells the story of a father and an orphan who don't look the same

Olympic diving hopeful Jordan Windle has written a new children's book with one of his two dads. 'An Orphan No More, the true story of a boy: chapter one.' Jordan was an orphan in Cambodia before being adopted by the book's co-author, Jerry Windle. The real-life family is rounded out by Jerry's partner, Andres Rodriguez.

The book tells the story of Rodney the rooster, who's told by the other farm animals that he cannot be a father without a hen. One day he stumbles across an egg that no one wants. He hatches the egg and a little duckling emerges. When the duckling meets some young friends his age, they tease him about not having a mother and about the fact that he doesn't look like his dad (Jordy is brown and Rodney is white, just like Jordan and his dads).

The book also features a forward by Olympic gold medalist Greg Louganis:

Watching Jordan grow as an elite athlete and as a remarkable young man inspires me every day and has proven something which I have long advocated: Where there is love, there is family. Jerry and Jordan are family.

You can purchase the book at anorphannomore.com. Proceeds from the book will help pay for Jordan's training as he aims for the Summer Olympic Games in 2016 and 2020.
