John in his own words says “I am John; I never knew how old I was until now.  Now I know my birth date.  I came to the home in 2007, and went to pre unit class (kindergarten).  There were 76 kids and 1 teacher.  The happiest day of my life was when I was rescued from uncomfortable life and admitted to the home, got a good place to call home, and got to school like other children.  The saddest day of my life was when a stranger abused me and when my grandmother used to overwork me without going to school.  If I had 3 wishes they would be to understand what I am being taught, to get a good job, and to help my mother in the future to get medication for her mental state.”
