Own Words

I came to this country to my new adoptive parents in 1969 not speaking any English. Kids at the playground were so mean to me when I started 1st grade, and even though I spoke only a few words of English, at the end of first grade I was on the Honor Roll. That's been my story, always out doing, out running trying to prove to everyone that I was smart and able to do anything I set out to do and be a success.!!
