When Joanne Rosario's youngest child, Michael, was 12 years old, she would wake up at 7 a.m. most Saturdays, open the door to his room, only to see an empty bed and begin to worry where her son had gone.

He was not put on a pedestal when he enrolled at St. Anthony in Jersey City, N.J. His long, lean frame needed to fill out. His internal fire flickered, but it needed kindling.
