I can’t imagine what would happen to some of these kids without Medicaid funding their treatments. Between the courts and the case workers, they’re lost the moment they enter the system, they get abused by other kids, they get abandoned in psych hospitals, they can never win. It’s so rare that they get better. They repeat the cycle. I used to represent these kids until I couldn’t take it any longer. You are a stronger person than I am. It broke me.
