Andrieana "Moochie" Rodriguez, now 8 years old, has lived in Camden, N.J., her whole life. When "20/20" first met her, she took us on a tour of her playground, nicknamed "needle park," and pointed out drug vials, calling the dealers who hang out there "evil people." In her short life, she has also dealt with her father's battle with alcoholism, her brother's incarceration and the murder of a cousin right in front of her home. This third-grader loves ballet and wants to be a judge when she grows up. (Ida Mae Astute/ABC )
