I’m crazy busy today (I know, who isn’t?) but I wanted to quickly note that I had my interview with CASA at lunch today. The director is a lovely woman and we had a really nice chat. I need to review the schedule and make sure I know where and when to show up to get officially started with the training, but I am EXCITED. YES, ALL CAPS EXCITED. LET ME THROW IN SEVERAL EXCLAMATION POINTS JUST IN CASE I’M NOT MAKING MY POINT. !!!!!!!.
It’s not really going to be fun, per se, since the whole point is to advocate for abused and neglected kids in the court and foster care system, but I think it’s going to be incredibly gratifying nonetheless. Yay! If anybody stumbles upon this and is looking for a worthwhile volunteer opportunity, Google your local county’s CASA, or start at the link to the National CASA. You will be glad you did.
