Doug Oliver doesn’t let on that he’s a therapist. Doesn’t have to.

That’s because the subtle kind of therapy he prefers, as a volunteer at the Catholic Charities adult day care program in Nashville, sounds like little more than telling old stories of decades past.

Jackson Zoccola, a toothpick of a 10-year-old boy, loves to draw and play baseball. He lives with his adopted parents in a nice, safe Mt. Juliet subdivision. He attends fourth grade just down the road and makes good grades. He’s polite and friendly with visitors, eager to share details about his life, which did not begin in a nice, safe subdivision surrounded by a loving family.
