You might say she beat the odds of those whose young lives begin in the foster care system, as she was fortunate to have been adopted into a permanent family at the age of 2.

However, it wasn't quite "the end and they lived happily ever after"  Amongst other challenges of childhood, at the young age of 10  her hair began to fall out, and two years later  she was diagnosed with Alopecia. This only added to the stressors of  living through childhood and adolescence as an adoptee. Bullied and teased by peers, she experienced rejection and humiliation and even entertained thoughts of suicide.
