“What would it take to make me really happy? A lot runs through my mind when this question is asked.”

“Maybe it would be a good relationship with my mother, having my mother with me or there for me as I go through so much. Maybe having my older brother out of jail to be there for his kids.”

“Sometimes I think that my (low) expectations are the outcome of living through foster care. Maybe not having an addiction that’s fed by loads of bullets.”

“Not knowing how and not being able to get things done the right way can make feeling good difficult.”

“Most people wish to have a child, a home, a job, a life. That’s what I really believe could make me happy.”

Jose G. is 17 and living on the streets of Hollywood
