I would like to add a little story.
When I was a kid, I was popular in my earlier years of school. I never had a problem making or keeping friends.
When I went into foster care, I moved from school to school. In the beginning, I made friends at every school every easily, but I found it extremely
hard to lose them when I had to move. From kindergarten to 12th grade, I went to 13 different schools. In my high school years, I stopped making
friends by my own choice. I got tired of making and losing them so often. I just wanted to be left alone.
During lunchtime, I sat by myself by choice. I noticed this girl who also sat alone. I'd seen her around and knew that she didn't have any
friends, and she was often teased because she was very overweight.
One day I decided to sit next to her because I felt bad for her. One day turned into the whole year, and she turned out to be the best friend I could
ever have. Everyone who ignored her, or teased her really lost out on being friends with a great person.
Kim, if you are out there somewhere, thank you for your friendship. We had such fun together and I'm so
glad to have met you and I'm glad we became such friends.
