She's only seventeen years old. She's not perfect, never has been, never will be. She's emotional and she doesn't think about things before she says them. She'll say some things that will make you want to strangle her. She'll probably hurt you and make more mistakes than you can imagine. She doesn't mean to, but she probably will. However, she'll apologize. She's still learning about everything, even if she thinks she already knows it. She's been hurt. Sometimes she feels so alone she can't stand it. Other times she's so happy she can't believe it. She's just trying to figure out this twisted time in her life when everything gets real complicated, real fast. And everything seems to spin out of control before she ever begins to understand what's going on. But she loves, laughs, and does her best. And that's all you can ever ask of her.
