A Foster Child's Holiday Outing
Organized by: Regina Moss
I have been a CASA (court appointed special advocate) for a child in foster care for a little over a year. The child is 16 years old and the biological parents' parental rights were recently terminated. As a survivor of sexual abuse the child suffers from anxiety, depression and paranoia; however, she finds enjoyment and escape in music. She recently told me of her interest in classical and opera music and asked if we could go see Andrea Bocelli (world renowned classical tenor) in December. I would love to take her, but I am presently unemployed and cannot afford the tickets which are $215.35 each. I am hoping to raise $500 so that I can take her out to dinner and the concert on December 11, 2014. I think it would be a great holiday outing for her and would allow her to have a night of joy despite all of the other very serious issues that she deals with daily as a result of her abuse.
