Favorite Part about CFSC: I absolutely love the coaches!! Each one of them impact my life in different ways, and help me become a better person.  I truly love their personalities, as they are all different! Thank you for putting up with my tardiness, my bad math, and my “jokes.”

I am the oldest, but I was the third to last to be adopted.  I was actually 17 when I came to their family.
I’m in the midst of writing a book about my journey.  I was always embarrassed to tell my story, but I now want to tell it in hopes it will help others who may struggle along the way!
