A few years ago a friend brought up the need for guardian ad litems to the church we were attending.  I wish I had applied at the time but I didn't!   She was serving as one and saw what a blessing this role serves in the life of a child. She also knew that this is one very important way that Christ followers need to be involved...advocating for children who are abused or neglected.

Since entering the world of adoption we have had our eyes opened to alot of needs.  Needs here in Charlotte and needs half way across the world.  One way to serve at home is through the CASA program. CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocate.  The volunteer is appointed by a district court judge and helps to make a determination of a child's  needs.  The guardian ad litem is an advocate for the child to make sure that he or she is placed in a safe and loving home.  The guardian serves as an important voice for the child in court.

You can go to the National CASA website to learn moreand  search for a guardian ad litem program in your area.  Would you please consider filling out an application with me?
