Stigma leaves me stuck and I need to make a new good friend who will read to me and visit with me at my group home. If you like discussing current events, reading and visiting this is a perfect match for you. I like to learn grammar and vocabulary or read about minerals, food and nutrition or related topics. I might repeat myself so I just need you to be patient with me while we get to know each other.

  • a desire to help others;
