Being a CASA will most likely stir new levels of
emotions in you. Your heart will probably break
for the child whose father is fatally shot. You might
be angry when her mother does not show up for a
scheduled visit. You might even be frustrated when
you sit in an important meeting listening to people discuss who should have custody of her and why. However, you might feel loved when the child looks at you in the eyes and thanks you for things. You might feel infinitely proud when they are adopted by a loving family or are reunified with their biological family. There are a lot of different emotions that you may feel throughout the duration of a case. However, one thing is for sure,
it will all be worth it
. You will probably learn hat love thrives in all places, not just for "picture-perfect" families.
CASAs are ordinary citizens, who do extraordinary things. They listen closely to their case children and then speak up when it matters most - in the courtroom, in the classroom and community. And in the process, a child's life is changed forever. With just 10-15 hours a month as a CASA, you can create a brighter future for a foster child. No prior experience is necessary - CASA of Collin County will provide all the training you need. Call (972)-529-2272 X117 to learn more.
