"You Have Already Given Me Hope"

From: Monica Raggio (age 23)
Date: Sat, 16 Jan 2010
To: AHO Project
Subject: YOU HAVE ALREADY GIVEN ME HOPE.....

     “I just watched some of the videos of you and the other young adults on your website........I am blown away.
You too were once in our situations.

      I am so amazed that you have been able to help many, many young, struggling adults. I hope I too can be helped. I am very committed to doing whatever I can to assist you in helping myself. Thank you for you support. I watched the video of Jimmy and Amy....I love how Amy stated at the end of the video, "she is like my second mom"–that was very inspirational. There really is someone who cares for us, ones that have been abused, neglected, ended up homeless due to different situations that have come our way, but you take the time to really care about us and really watch us grow up to be young, mature, responsible adults in today’s crazy society. It doesn't take anyone with MONEY AND FAME to help our young adults today. It takes a caring, loving, warm, understanding, mature, and responsible woman to help our struggling young adults succeed in today’s hopeless society.
     THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR EVERYTHING YOU HAVE DONE FOR ME AND ALL THE OTHER YOUNG ADULTS IN TODAY’S WORLD!!!!”
