PG Goodfellows: She Enriches Her 'Angels' – And Vice Versa – But Help Is Needed

From US news outlet the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:
PG Goodfellows: She enriches her 'angels' — and vice versa — but help is needed
Tracy Copeland saved many of her great-nieces and great-nephews from unstable lives, but she’ll tell you that the children actually saved her.
Ms. Copeland, 56, of McKees Rocks, has taken in six children over the past 15 years despite her own health issues that have made life difficult.
After searching for answers for two years, she was finally diagnosed with fibromyalgia, a disorder that affects muscle and soft tissue.
Despite the pain, Ms. Copeland continued working after her diagnosis.
“I would go to work like this because we had to survive,” she said. “People would beg me to put [the children] in CYF, and I’m thinking ‘I’m not putting my kids in the system.’ I raised them, and we’re going to be OK.”
