I read in the New York Times about a lawsuit on behalf or10 disabled Children fraudulently adopted by a Queens, New York woman more than 15 years ago. It is an extremely disturbing case. Anyone who loves children, swallow hard before reading further.
The lady used different aliases to adopt severely disabled kids (autistic, etc.) who clearly weren’t wanted by anyone else, then pocketed the support subsidies from the City, spent them lavishly on herself, all while keeping the kids locked up at “home” and out of school. Well, I guess you could say they got some “schooling”, but it was the school of “hard knocks”: They were caged, handcuffed, and beaten every day of their young lives.
The kids are now mostly in their early adult life and, guess what, they want justice. Wouldn’t you? Now mostly in their 20s, they are asking for money to pay for the psychological and other services and treatment they will need for the rest of their lives and to be compensated for their years of suffering as well.
