Damien’s broken out of his shyness. He’s putting himself out there, helping kids younger than he is, and he’s even talking about going to college. ‘Mom, I want to go to BC like Stefan.’ They talk all the time. ‘Mommy, can I call Stefan now?’ And I like the connection between them. Stefan even calls me to see how I’m doing."
