Over the past 3 years that I have lived here in Monroe, I have made many friends and forged strong relationships with the teachers. I was part of my church youth group, pta basketball, rec softball, women's choir, and other activities where I met many people. I am a very easy person to get along with and was loved by my friends. Unfortunately, my father thought it would be best if I moved TWO HOURS AWAY from Monroe and everything I held near and dear to my heart. I miss Monroe in general and DID NOT want to leave.I love the family I am staying with but everything I know and love is in Monroe. I'm sure many of you share the same opinion so if you could just sign this petition to help persuade my dad to bring me home where I belong.
