What if you’ve been shuffled from one foster family to another, when all you want is to be reunited with your sisters? Or, you have severe asthma triggered by mold in your bedroom wall that your landlord says isn’t his problem to fix? Or, your school refuses to test you for a learning disability even though you still can’t say your ABCs in the third grade?
