"Thank you very much for seeing me as a person—a normal, good person who made a mistake, but is working hard to become emotionally healthy for myself and others.

When I first came in, I was extremely guarded, ashamed, and torn inside. And you, Ms. Graves, were compassionate, honest and empathetic. I will never forget your kindness."
