The most vulnerable of our children in the United States are children in foster care. In this first of a series of three news videos, foster child Brittany Cheshler shares her feelings of loneliness and sadness. She was separated from her brother as she was placed in foster care. All she wanted was someone she loved and trusted to be by her side. CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) help fill that need. Although a CASA volunteer may not be family, the steady support of a single adult can make a huge difference in the lives of foster children. Brittany was blessed by being given an adoptive home. At age nine she became a member of her forever family. But during the three years she was in foster care, she learned what it is like to really feel alone.
