I watched the last part of Bulgaria’s Abandoned Children last night and it left me cold. I was shocked with disbelief that this kind of thing goes on, especially after the exposure of the Romanian orphanges some twenty years ago.
The emotional neglect and lack of everyday stimulus has resulted in these children failing to properly develop normal motor skills such as talking and walking. Instead they just rock themselves back and forth and waste away their poor wretched lives.
It was just heartbreaking to watch. I felt angry, frustrated, despairing, helpless . . . emotionally ripped to bits.
