I felt invisible to almost everyone but my step-mother. She saw a hurt soul that needed help and that is when my parents found Shepherd’s Hill Academy. Upon arriving, I thought it was going to be full of judgment and harsh criticism toward what I had done in the past, but that was not true. I found people who greeted me and told me that they loved me and there wasn’t any judgement but acceptance of who I was and not of the facade I’d worn for so long.
