I am a CASA volunteer. For those who don't know what that is I have included a link. Basically, I was sworn in by a judge to advocate for a child in the system. Last week I had a family support meeting. This meeting involved the child, parents(if involved), case worker, placement provider, etc. During this meeting you get a update from everyone present at the meeting about the case. There is a lot of work involved but it is very rewarding. The work also gives you first hand experience of how the court system works for adoption and placement proceedings. If you would like more info let me know.
