Bill’s story is powerful, sad, joyful and motivating all in one. Bill was a child in foster are. At a young age, he was separated from his twin sisters and placed in foster care and other institutions. Bill suffered abuse and trauma that no child should ever endure, and only at the age of 57, was he able to tell his story.
