  Forgotten Kids - Forgotten_kids: the children that have nearly invisible disabilities.. They have their arms and legs, can see and hear, run, play, etc., but most have never been to a Birthday party or a sleepover.. they are last to be chosen to play, and first to be blamed. Their illnesses aren't fatal, but a small part of their hearts and souls die with every rejection. Their behaviors may seem odd or unpredictable to themselves as much as society. They are overlooked, thus the name "Forgotten_Kids".
