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!
