    Bad enough we have parents abusing kids and now we have some grandparents from Tucson who had their 48 pound, 9 year old grandson living in a closet.

    Neighbors say they only ever saw one little boy living there. A younger one, but not the other boy.

    I will never understand why or how anyone could abuse a child, especially when there are more than one child in the home and they single just one out.

    Any "feral child" case, it's saddening. There are many more out there that we don't even know =(

    From the article.......
    "He didn't get to go outside and play with other children. He didn't attend school he doesn't know how to read and write. We understand that the child was basically living in, or his bedroom was a closet. He had a carpet, a sleeping bag and a sheet."...



    How heartbreaking is this????????????????????? And will he get out of the foster care system?

    ETA: Article says nothing about foster care.....where are these kids now?

    Poor little guy! :(

    I will never understand how ANYONE can look into the eyes of an innocent child and abuse them, belittle them or make them live in these kinds of conditions. It makes me sick!! :furious:

    I hope he goes on to live a happy, healthy and WONDERFUL life...he sure deserves it!!
