  • Michael does not like the way he is living, he just wants to be a normal kid with a normal family.
  • Michael finally found the right family that will take care of him and treat him like he is part of the family.
  • "The Tuohys treated me like a member of the family, a real family and not just as another mouth to feed or the reason for a monthly support check." (141)

  • Michael finally made it through high school and he was ready for college. He signed with Ole Miss and he couldn't wait to play football for them.
  • "When my name was called on Draft Day, I couldn't imagine that life could get any better especially since I was surrounded by some people who meant the most in the world to me." (105)
  • Michael is all dressed up for the NFL Draft, in shock he walks up the steps to shake Mike Sexton's hand, as that was happening, he was holding a Ravens jersey.
  • "Children who have been taken to live in the foster system are twice as likely to suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder than are American military members returning from war zones."
