Bear with me here….
It is possible to be a poor parent and never run afoul of the law.
It is also possible to be a decent parent and have to submit to the scrutiny of a caseworker.
But the stories that are the hardest to bear are the ones like Kevasia Edwards.
Little people whose whole lives have been marred by pain, hunger, violence, and the state walks into and then out of their lives only to do nothing.
Until it is too late and they have been murdered.
