They worked together after that, a family struggling through the barriers of a past neither could control. Luis attended Curry College, where he starred in theatrical productions. On his graduation day in 2004, the commencement speaker was Jack Williams.
Williams stood on stage in cap and gown and told everyone that whenever they think life is tough, he wanted them to remember the story of a boy named Angel. When he finished he said, “That boy is here with us today.” He called Luis Carmody to receive his diploma as 5,000 people stood and cheered.

“Jack told me once,” says Mary Beth, “the hardest thing is not having a child find a home. He sees greatness. He sees potential.”

“Nobody else can really understand what it feels like to be unwanted,” Luis says. “In a strange way, all of the ‘Wednesday’s Children’ are brothers and sisters. And Jack is our father.”
