Ok, it's not like I have SO much time on my hands to spare these days but this subject has really, I mean REALLY been weighing on my mind to get involved in and so I am jumping in feet first and am really excited about it.
That is joining and becoming a member of CASA.
There is a part of me that has always regretted not going to college and then on to Law School. It was always a dream of mine to be in a court of law and also to help Children in need.
I have been one of those kids.
Ending up in Foster Care and in the System, I know a thing or two about how children feel and react to adversity in their family. I do know that so many kids in bad situations fall through the cracks and live miserable lives.
Perhaps I can change that? I hope so.
As I said, I am super excited about this. Classes start in February and last 6 weeks and a few Saturdays. I hope I can be a "Voice" for some child out there that needs to be heard. I've always felt I would like to take in Foster Kids some day and this may be the start of something new....
What is a CASA you might ask?
