VIII. Adjusting
We orphans were not easily accepted by the other Canadian children. I do not think they were trying to be mean; I just think that they had no idea what to do with us. All they had to do was to simply say, "Let's go for a walk," or "Come over to my house and let's try on some make-up together." I wish that they had just behaved normally and let us enter their lives.
