В @Wonderwatts MLВ ItвЂ™s not just that. Kids in an orphanage or foster care type shelter have lost their parental bonds. They are naturally going to look for that where they live. Chess was her initial interest but the bond she had with him was the reason she kept going back. He was her family there. In a place thatвЂ™s sad and lonely itвЂ™s incredibly important. Even after seeing all those newspaper clippings she couldnвЂ™t open up to the media about how he meant to her. She told reporters that he taught her to play chess but not much beyond that.
