Rachel Smith: This story starts many moons ago when a shy foster kid was placed in Rachel’s 8th grade English class. Rachel was aware that the student was new to the school and quickly learned that she spent most of her life bouncing around from new home to new home. The following year, Rachel decided to adopt the student and become her mother. To this day, she continues to work within the school system and is an amazing advocate and voice for those who may have lost their own.
