So a student says to me today, I’m getting ready to change my name.
Me: oh really.
Student: Yes. And proceeds to tell me theirr new name… you see, I’m getting adopted. I’ve been in a foster home for 2 years. I’ve come a long way, I used to be pretty rough, a lot of trouble. You can ask J_. It’s been a long journey, but proud of how far I’ve come.
