Faye Knew What She Wanted

At ten years old, Faye knew what she wanted, and she made sure her CASA volunteer Patti knew it, too.  She didn't want to live with her mother, who was addicted to drugs. She didn't want to live with her grandmother, who suffered from depression. She didn't want to live with her father, who was in prison. And she didn't want her mother to cause trouble with another placement.  Go to Dallas CASA's blog   to learn more.
