I Get It - Taylor Jolley

Having my aunt and uncle head the organization and having my brother participate being just so connected to YMAD over all, I thought I knew exactly what was going to happen, how I would feel about the girls at the Main Day Boarding School. Yes, they are pre-teen and younger girls that give you a whole lot of attitude, and it’s incredibly hard to teach them, but I don’t know if I’ll ever have the same kind of relationship with anyone ever again. The moment I walked into the school I instantly loved them, every one of them. For almost a year I was told that I would love them, but I never have felt it like that, nor that instant. My aunt, uncle, and brother all told me their experiences and how they felt and I can honestly say I had a completely different experience. Now I know it, I finally get it. This is why we go.
