Casa reflections

It was a year ago this weekend that I first met three beautiful children who had been neglected and abused and removed from their home and placed in state custody where they have bounced from one home and school and therapist and psychiatrist and caseworker to another.

Today, they are traumatized, hyper-vigilant, fearful, medicated and exhausted, and I still do not know what tomorrow holds for them. 

Many days, it feels as if the only difference I can make is to introduce the tiniest dose of humanity and hope.

    Shari, I will pray for your CASA children and for you. It is a hard, hard road, but with God anything is possible.
