Well, this is sad

I was reading this very sad story┬áthat’s part of an award-winning Chicago Tribune investigative reporting piece on Illinois’s crappy group homes for troubled youth and thought the name “Mary Bohanon” rang a bell. I checked. And she’s missing. Again. For at least the third time. She has post-traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder, and a history of running away and prostitution activity. Her mother gave her up to the state, apparently in order for her to get help for her mental illness. Obviously she didn’t get it.
