Pete - thank you for sharing this part of your story. i am so glad that someone intervened on your behalf. i can now see why you cherish the memory of those years at the boys' home.
As my life goes on I believe somehow something's changed
Something deep inside...
I've been searchin so long to find an answer
Now I know my life has meaning
Now I see myself as I am, feeling very free...
When my tears have come to an end I will understand
What I left behind: a part of me. Chicago
