By Charles Montaldo Larry Swartz struggled his whole life, first as a foster care child, then as one of two boys adopted by Robert and Kathryn Swartz.
At first he was his parent's favorite, but in time that changed and he became their next victim.
After getting married they settled down in Cape St. Kay was a teacher at the local high school and Bob worked with computers.
Kay was unable to have children so they decided to adopt.
The thought of opening their home to unwanted children fit right in with their active participation with pro-life groups.
Lawrence "Larry" was six years old and the first child to join the Swartz family.
His birth mother had been a waitress in New Orleans and his father was alleged to have been an East Indian pimp. Eight-years-old Michael was the second child that joined the family.
