Wherever I go in the next five, ten, twenty years, it's always going to come back to this. To Growing Home.
Because there's something that you all saw in me, and your hearts went out to me. People don't have to do
something like that if they don't want to. They do it because they believe someone like me deserves a
second chance. Growing Home gave me a second chance.
