I have been incredibly touched by my daughter's freshman year new roommate. She was adopted at 4. She was bounced around the system until she was placed in a group home at 15. She worked 62 hours a week to pay for her tuition which is 1/4 of the tuition of the school due to many grants and scholarships. She pays one semester at a time. Everything she owns is in their small room. She does not have ONE family member. My daughter actually moved rooms and chose her and I can see why. This young woman has wisdom beyond her young years. She told me she is a photographer. The reason being that she can tell people when they say they dont like the way they look that if you look at the moon in a picture, its just a white speck but truly it is the most beautiful and majestic thing in the world.
