Unemployed, nearly broke and fearing she'd be homeless within the month, Robynn Fried of Lodi was caught in a string of bad fortune and unsure when it would end.

For more than a year, she'd been unable to find a job as a pharmacy technician and relied on her daughter to pay rent for their humble apartment in northwest Lodi. Money was running out.

    For me this story has to be the most honest story I've ever read...

    Truly touched in Oregon...

    And I'd really like to thank Artem for bringing hope back into my heart. I'd JUST given up finding a job in pharmacy when he came knocking at my door. And a HUGE thank you to your parents for leading by example. I truly wish there were more parents like you in this world. [love]
    I know it was confusing when I was talking to Chris. I was a Relief Counselor for Regional Youth Services, and an Instructional Aide at North Valley School. They are facilities, owned by Victor Treatment Centers for severely emotionally disturbed children. Just thought I'd clear that part up a bit.

    Most of the teenagers I have run into lately to say they aren't Artem's caliber is an understatement. Some are so down right rude it makes you want to slap their parents.

    Thank you Artem for renewing my hopes for your generation.

    BTW I tend to focus on the more badly behaved kids and know I should pay more attention to the better kids.
