I lived in an orphanage in Romania and no one wanted me. The Embassy official told my adoptive mom “You don’t want her. She’s deficient.”
But mom said “I do want her. She’s for me. And I’m for her.”
Now, I’m 28. I walk with a cane and have developmental disabilities. But I graduated from Mishawaka High School and I have a purpose. I want to work like everyone else. When I looked for a job, I couldn’t find one. Years went by. The job coaches at all the other places couldn’t help me. And I gave up.
Then, there was a miracle. I met Jorey from LOGAN. She helped me with my job training and I got a good job.
Now I live in a LOGAN house in Mishawaka with three friends. We all have jobs. Mine is at Sassy’s Sandwich Shack in Toscana Park. I take orders and run the cash register. It’s a good place with nice people. And the food’s delicious.
Mom says LOGAN was the answer to our prayers. It’s true. Now I get up every day and have a purpose. I live independently and work like you do. It’s a miracle.
But there are other young people like me who are waiting to be independent. I wish a miracle for them. Please help them the same way you helped me by making a gift to LOGAN today.
P.S. I’d love to see you at Sassy’s. It’s really good food. Please come in and say hello.
