      It boggles the mind and breaks the heart for these kids when you see whose supposed to be in charge of their care! Some people have no clue, no shame, no class. Drugs? Mental illness? Always a good excuse huh?! FB can be a venue to prove how good some people can be, or what a nightmare they can be!
