Definitely. And stories like this one from today's Star really hit hard too...

A blanket on the other side of the tree has a boy who looks about 3, abandoned there by his parents. No one knows his age or name.

His head is bandaged. His left ear is leaking fluid. One eye is swollen and the other is rolled back into his head. A tiny plaid shirt wraps his chest but he is naked from the waist down. He does not move but chants nonsense constantly, apparently the victim of brain damage.

"We're taking care of him, even though we have our own problems," says a man standing over the blanket.
