Stories like these make me want to become a social worker.
There just aren't enough social workers out there. They become overwhelmed and simply give up on some of their kids, resulting in those kids deaths. That's just unacceptable. Social workers are all these kids have because their parents neglect or abuse them. When those social workers fail them, they have nothing and no one to help them or rescue them.
Lately I've been just feeling so helpless. I want to help people - I want to help everyone around me and it kills me that I can't do that.
