We had fun enjoyed the speaker. He spoke of his own experience being in foster care then adopted. Regardless of his family situation he still kept the faith. He stated that his biological parents were addicted to drugs and that was the reason why he and his sister were placed into the foster care system. We did not place this time but will compete again next year.
