This essay is dedicated to every bewildered child who has ever needed a home, every loving parent or guardianwho has ever needed help, and Milton & Catherine Hershey who graciously cared about both.While responsibility for the material presented here is solely and fully mine, this essay reflects the tireless efforts of several individuals toiling away for weeks, but who have asked to remain anonymous. Where the essay succeeds at all, a large part of any credit due belongs to them. I humbly acknowledge their roles and thank them for their kind assistance.
