Ever since I became a mother two years ago, hearing about instances of child abuse or neglect have been so much more difficult for me to process and I've felt slightly helpless as a result. Then along came Craigslist with a post about volunteers needed to serve children within my local community and I felt like my prayers had been heard. CASA has programs in 49 states (what's your deal North Dakota?) and so my Mom has decided to volunteer with the Utah chapter as well. I'm really looking forward to doing whatever I can, no matter how small, to try and make a positive impact in these children's lives.
