As this blog has discussed on previous occasions, there are many people in Springfield who know children whose parents are simply not willing or not able to care for them properly.
Even when one or both parents have decent health insurance, Massachusetts residents are inevitably going to have to pay for some medical expenses out of pocket. These expenses can range from co-pays and deductibles to less frequent expenses that are more expensive, like braces. While all parents will no doubt have some of these expenses, they are particularly common when parents are raising a child with special needs.
The idea of an offshore account may connote some sense of mystery or even inherently illegal activity.

Residents of Springfield, Massachusetts, even if they are of relatively modest means, can and often do own these sorts of accounts for a variety of reasons.
