One of the saddest and unbelievable things I've ever read.....

Is here.


It is a story of a little girl who was so neglected that she is deemed 'environmentally autistic'. It will break you heart, but I think you need to read it anyway. It is so maddening that this child was allowed to suffer such indignities as this in order to keep the family together. I don't get that at all! I see kids who are treated so horribly by their families, and nothing is done. But that is another rant for another day!

Read the story, and be prepared with tissues!

last night Bekah and I were looking at children all over the country who are adoptable. ALL of their conditions (most stemming from environmental circumstances) broke my heart...
What is wrong with people?

This is unbelievable and unacceptable. I can't believe the mother got off that lightly.

I have read this and it haunts me.

Thank you for posting this. (When my children whine about wanting something more I am so tempted to have them read this!)
