I am for the child who's had several addresses in a single year. Because she is in foster care. Because her father abused her. And because her mother couldn't believe her. I am for her. The child, barely 6, who, worse than no longer believing in others, no longer believes in herself. I am for that child. So I am there for that child. To listen to her. To stand up in court for her. To speak for her. To champion without compromise for what's in her best interest. Because I am there for her, I know she will be half as likely to languish in foster care, and that she will be much more likely to find a safe, permanent home. That is the child I am for.
I am a Court Appointed Special Advocate - a CASA volunteer.
