Part 2 of 3
Jolene Capone was a runner.
"That’s what they called me, it was in my file," she said. "Nobody wanted me because that’s what I did."
Jolene ran from the lousy foster homes. She ran from good foster homes.
Growing up in Boston, this Italian-American kid spent more time in foster care and group homes than she did with her family.
Her relationship with her mother was awful. So Jolene almost expected it when her mom backed off a promise that Jolene could come home after she turned 18.
Plan B: Jolene moved in with her boyfriend, until that went south.
"He was a drug user, and he was really abusive. So I had to get out of that situation and so I went into shelter," she said.
Some nights she’d walk back to the shelter and see this middle-aged guy — Darrell.
