I have only heard of this on AM radio, as I was in my truck til now.......... Exactly how does something like this slip through the cracks. These people are getting checks for these poor children, obviously they were not in school, how do they become little lost people in the system??? Are adoptions not followed up on??? Are foster children not checked on? I know Dannyboy, has had foster children. Im just wondering and saddened at how this can happen. This is in my state, it makes me wonder if people are just taking the easy way out instead of reporting and following up on things that just dont look right. Surely they had neighbors of some sort, or friends?
