New York was my home for 25 years from birth until the time I boarded the plane to embark on my new adventure down South. But, I also knew that if I did not board the plane that day I would be homeless in NY and may miss an opportunity to grow as a person. Nothing during this Southern adventure was guaranteed except for the fact that NYC would always be exactly where it was and that I could go back at anytime. That is what got me through and I know one day NYC and I will meet again. First things first, it’s the city not Manhattan. If you don’t you are one of two things: a tourist or not from NY. Anything goes in NYC. You can have no hair, blue hair, or walk around topless and everything will be fine.

Foster care had been hard, but she’d been luckier than some in her placements.
