Nicki Yoder speaks with her brother-in-law David Yoder during a breakfast held at Pearl S. Buck International on Tuesday in Hilltown Township.
To David Yoder, the late Buck was simply the woman who gave him a second chance at life.
"To me," Yoder said, "she was just a loving gran."
Yoder, the first of many children helped by Buck's Welcome House adoption program, told his story publicly for the first time Tuesday during a fundraising breakfast.
"Gran," said Yoder, his voice cracking, "I've come home."
Now 64, Yoder is set to become the chairman of Pearl S. Buck International, the nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving Buck's legacy. It's a critical time for the group, which is launching a fundraising program in the hopes of helping more children around the world through increased sponsorship programs and adoption services.
"It was that night that Pearl Buck changed the course of my life," Yoder said, his voice filled with emotion.
David Yoder was never officially adopted. He took the Yoders' last name because they raised him.
Buck's estate, David Yoder said, was their playground.
Today, David Yoder, now 64, is the father of two grown children and a human resources manager for Lockheed Martin in Moorestown, N.J. In January, the Norristown resident will become chairman of the Pearl S. Buck International board of directors.
"Pearl Buck allowed me to experience what it's like to grow up in a loving family," Yoder said.
