“What greater reward could there be than to give new life to a child; especially to a child who has been hurt or damaged by the mistakes of adults who were supposed to be the child’s love and support system.  To be able to help a child learn to trust and love again is quite a reward in itself.” – Sister Delores

This wall reminds me of myself, still standing but worn, with missing pieces and covered in patches to hide its flaws.  Protecting the many cracks from vulnerability from the outside forces.  Multicolored with years of adding strength to it, just to protect it from caving in on itself, but all the while ruining its solid, beautiful color to what others may see as another ugly wall.  But this wall reminds me of me. -Jonny
