Hi! My name is Monica. I live at Dorie’s Promise with my two younger brothers. Even though it was hard at first, school is one of my favorite places now. I have lots of friends there and the teachers make it fun. I didn't realize how much I would enjoy learning all kinds of new things. Most of all, I'm glad to be together with my little brothers. At home, I love spending time with the other girls and Special Mothers. Sometimes we braid each others' hair or paint our fingernails. Other times, we just sit and talk. No matter what, I love having them with me.
