Decorative stacked stone falling off porch foundation


Hello I am new to this site. I have been trying to improve my home and things don't go well at times. I had been waiting for 3 years on my husband to put the stacked stone on our porch foundation, so I hired some one last summer big mistake charged me a large amount of money and stone is falling off. I am not living this one down and do not know how to fix it I was told that stacked stone will not work outside because of weather getting behind it. I have to much money in this to give up now.
Any suggestions? This is a 30ft. x 10ft front porch.

The person will not return my calls. My husband decided he will try to just cement the pieces up himself, but I think its going to take more than that to get it all to stay.
I'm not sure if I did this right I put a picture in an attachment.
