Advocate Spotlight: Kacee
After adopting our daughter from foster care in 2018, we wanted to take a break from fostering but I knew I still wanted to be involved in the system. I applied to be a CASA and haven’t regretted a single moment. I have a full-time job as a high school math teacher, but I can easily fit CASA work into my schedule because of the support that is given to me by my supervisor.
My best experience as a CASA was in court one day. The lawyers and CPS all wanted one thing to happen while I wanted another. I pled my case to the judge and clearly laid out why I thought my plan was in the best interest of the child. The judge agreed with my points and made my plan her choice for what happened with the child. I went straight to my car and cried happy tears because I knew that my hard work was paying off and I was making a difference.
