'I Couldn't Talk or Walk. But I Had a Brain.'

Young Catherine Badgley's refuge at Cedar Springs was a window in the ward she shared with 65 other children -- a ledge where she could pull herself up by her noodle legs, stare outside and imagine a life beyond the institution's locked doors.
Today Catherine Badgley lives
in an apartment with her two cats.
"If it rained, I could see it trickling down the window. I always cried, the tears just coming right down."
