Katie Corcoran Found!

**UPDATE** Found in Baltimore by an alert shop owner!!! What a relief this must be to her family in Lincoln!!

Here husband decries the mental health care available to his wife suffering from post partum depression. I'll echo that from firsthand knowledge. While Butler Hospital (where she was) offers excellent services, the connection between hospital & home are most definitely lacking. In this case, it seems bordering on criminal. Some of the problem stems from the difficulty of having severly distrubed adults legally in charge of themselves. Having family members taking charge of their care in a legal sense is extraordinarily difficult - almost impossible & expensive. The same also hold true for senior adults who no longer are able to manage themselves. While protecting their rights, we've helped also lead them down a very self-destructive path.
