#throwbackthursday takes us back to a wonderful CASA memory happening just last year!

Adoption is one of the many exciting & rewarding safe & permanent home outcomes for CASA. Last week, after over 4 years in foster care, JD and her forever family were officially united as parents and child in the Macon County Juvenile Advocacy court.

Macon County CASA Advocate Supervisor, Kim Perkins was assigned to JD's case in 2018 and during that over two years she "worked soooo hard for this girl to be adopted." According to mom, "when CASA was assigned, JD was slipping through the cracks and Kim was a rockstar in fighting for services and a dream adoption by 18 years old!" CASA helped JD and family achieve that goal with just 5 days to spare!

CASA is grateful to amazing foster parents who become adoptive parents providing security and love for our kiddos. #changeachildsstory #casakids
