Serbian mental institutions revisited

NBC News just put up a 3-part series on the predicament of children and adults with special needs in Serbia.  This contains much footage from a much shorter (and very disturbing) 2008 video, but also includes followups, as well as a look into the very real dilemma faced by Serbian parents of special needs infants, as they must choose between relinquishing their child to these horrible places, or trying to raise a disabled child without medical or educational resources, and often without the support of family.

  1. I really appreciate the fact that the updated footage shows the lack of resources for parents who choose to keep their disabled children. I was torn between hoping that father would bring his little boy home and knowing that doing so would probably ruin his family financially.
