Thank you for your very nice words and your kindness!
How does one owe me anything? I do not understand this. But some of the classmates do tell me their parents owe them. For what? What have they ever done to deserve anyone to owe them? This makes no sense.
Your former President, John F. Kennedy said this, "Do not ask what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country." This is very true! Then replace the word "country" with the word "family." And both are very true.
If in any way I might be mature, it is from my parents. This is what they brought me to be. I owe my parents, my DA, my family, my new country, and my old country. I owe God the most for putting me in to the hands of my family. I owe the man who found me in the trash can, but we can not find him.
If I make any correct decisions, it is of Mamma and DA. I am learning to make correct decisions. This is very important.
I do not feel that I have common things together with my classmates. Older people do understand me much more than the younger people.
And this is fine and well for me right now.
