As a guardian ad-Litem for an 11 year old girl, I was appalled when the care agency threw away all of her possessions because she was messy.
Think about it. Removed from her birth family (where she was sexually abused and terribly beaten), forced to live away from her siblings, among many other severely damaged children in a chaotic environment, no love, no freedom, and with about three things in her room tying her to her past. One of which was a photo that she cherished deeply.
Everything this poor child owned was thrown away because nothing in her life mattered to the person (a low skilled and low paid helper) ruling her life and making those decisions.Details
