Day 47 International Red Shoes Rock Virtual Relay Race – Congratulations to Tori!
Another set of twins – Mac thinks that is pretty cool – two big sister kinda girls to run with that almost look alike for two days. Thumbs Up – Cool!
MEET TORI – I am 22 years old and I have a twin sister. I work at different jobs in my community. I live in a group home with my sister and two roommates. Someday I hope to live on my own with my sister in our own place. I love playing and being in sports. Sports make me feel alive and successful, makes me feel good inside. School was really hard for me, because I process information differently than other people, reading is hard, and understanding is hard. I learn better by doing. I remember better if I have the chance to do it first. Making friends was hard, I couldn’t figure out how to be like everyone else, now after high school I make friends more easily. Lots of my friends process differently like me and so we understand each other better.
STRUGGLES – I really struggle with my impulses; I need reminders to do the right thing.
STRENGTHS – I love athletics, music and art. I write my thoughts better than I can say them so I write lots of letters to people. I am strong because my Mom and Dad taught me to be and they support me and keep me safe. I have never drank alcohol because my brain has already been hurt by alcohol and I want to be stronger not hurt it more.
MY WISH – My biggest with is that I did not have FASD. I hate FASD, I hate what it has done to me and my sister.
