In Re Amanda A. (Cal. Ct. App. - Nov. 20, 2015)

Read the first eight pages or so of this opinion if you want a depressing glimpse into the life of a young woman.

Amanda A. is lost.  She might be lost for her entire life.  It's a life without meaning.  And the system is really at a loss for what to do here.  Understandably so.

It's got to be frustrating for everyone involved.  From the social worker to the trial court to the Court of Appeal.

A wasted life.  At least thus far.  Without much concrete hope of it getting better anytime soon.
