ADVOCATE OF THE MONTH - FEBRUARY
Paul began as an advocate
in June, 2015 after completing 30 hours of training. Paul was undaunted in
taking on a case where the child had been in State care for nearly 10 years.
Past behavioral issues had led to this child being labeled as "un-adoptable"
by the department, but Paul had no intention of allowing this boy to fall
through the cracks. Paul has been consistent with his support, visits,
and positive value reinforcement. This boy was able to open up for the
first time and begin believing in himself. Paul's amazing commitment was
the driving force behind the boy being moved to the Adoption Unit
where he was introduced to a family that is now in the process of adopting him.
Child advocacy is inclusive of so many aspects; not only acting as a voice for
the child in court, but making personal connections, bringing out qualities and
self-worth, and helping a child become a success story rather than a statistic.
Thank you, Paul, for the impact you have had on
this boy's life, and for being an amazing CASA!
