"This is Chris. He was 21 years old when I met him, and his birthday was the following day. He has no family that he can contact or be with — he has basically been entirely alone for the past 11 years. He has been on the streets and homeless since he was 10. Yeah, I know, insane but a sad reality. I asked him how that's possible, and his reason gave me chills. 'I hated having to constantly wear extra layers and warm clothing at school when it was hot,' he said quietly. I asked him what he meant by that, and he said that it was to cover up the bruises from getting hit by his dads. 'Dads?!' I said, and he replied, 'Yeah, both by my real dad and also my step-dad.'"
