    This story was sort of sad that Yohannes was punished during school recess for an hour writing one sentence over and over until his hand cramped.
    Yohannes life as a foster child and then being adopted.

    Yohannes talked about being adopted and how his life became a puzzle that had to be put together with he and his parents

    Yohannes also said that parents need to put themselves in the child’s shoes. And how what is said to a child and the tone has to be processed by the child and negativity is a bad place to be

    Yohannes’ story is very interesting. Although he suffered somewhat, he found trust with the people around him. His experience with his adopted parent didn’t block him from excelling. His story should be shared with both adult and other foster child (teenagers). The inner feeling about the birth parents is always there.
