James On His Own [07.15.09]

James Morrow had some problems growing up and ended up in foster care. That experience was a nightmare. He returned home to try living with his mother again, but ended up dropping out of high school. Shortly after, his family was evicted. For a time, James was living completely on his own - staying with a friend's family, avoiding both school and the state foster care program. That's when he met Dianne Reinhardt, an artisan baker who gave James a job. Also in the show: Life as a school resource officer.
