and CASA child. He entered foster care at eighteen months old. His parents
struggled with drugs and alcohol addiction. While in care he rotated through
several homes and shelters, and experienced a failed adoption at the age of
five. Thankfully, with the help of a
CASA volunteer, he had a successful adoption at the age of thirteen. Jackie now
shares his experiences to help other kids involved in the foster care system.
