I live in the Yellow House in Norwood. I moved in on Aug 16, 2010. Before I moved to the Yellow House, I lived in Randolph with my mom and dad. I wanted to move because I wanted to have more responsibilities, to be more independent, and to have friends to talk to and hang out with. It was fun at home with my parents but it’s easy to talk about things that people my age like to talk about at the Yellow House.
When my oldest daughter went away to college, it was hard for Joe and me but we had three more daughters to fill up our home and our lives. Then our second daughter moved away, then our third, but we were lucky because we still had Marie at home. Then we learned that a new JF&CS program would open in Norwood: a program that seemed perfect for Marie.
