Greatest Gift

Glenn Doman, the founder of The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential, passed away. In my opinion, he was one of the greatest gifts to brain injured children. Thankfully, his legacy will forever live on.

Aviana happened to be too hurt to continue on with this program. That doesn't mean we didn't take a multitude of good away from all of these people - lessons we use everyday and will for the rest of our lives. 

I feel so fortunate to have met, and seen Glenn lecture the many times we were in Philadelphia. I have never before been witness to someone who, at their core, loved and cared for our child as much as he, his family, and the staff at The Institutes did.

I can't even imagine what it's like there without him. All I can do is wish them our love.

The Doman Family: 
Glenn Doman, his wife Katy, his daughter Janet and his son Doug.

Rest in Peace


  1. I was so sad to find out about Glenn's passing this morning. That's what the immediate feeling was... sad. Then as the day went on, for some reason I couldn't step out of the dark cloud. I cried like a baby and held Fi tight. Not sure why it affected me in such a big way. I just know that the world is a far better place having had Glenn Doman in it. Love ya.

  2. Your family learned a lot from him and what has helped many people. I am sorry that his passing has happened now as what all in going on Jen - but I am here and praying for all of you. Yall need to come to Texas and we could take beautiful pictures if yall in the blue flowers and bluebonnets. *Hugs* xoxo Julie - Texas

  3. Oh how sad. I'm feel so bad for his family but am grateful for the countless lives he has changed.

  4. I didn't know he passed away! Oh, I'm sad about that. I have such a great picture of him with Audriana. She was in one of their rooms trying on the anti-gravity suit, and he walked in to see what everyone was doing. He stopped to talk with us, and then we snapped and picture of him with Audriana. They are both smiling. It's a sweet picture.
    He has done such wonderful things in his life. Such a good man. I am proud to say that we "knew" him. May he rest in peace, and I hope his family has peace in his passing, knowing that he helped so many children.
