The late Caroline Rose Hunt had a very special place in her heart for children in need of safe and secure families. Perhaps that’s why her family requested donations be made in her memory to Dallas CASA via the “Caroline Rose Hunt Cherish the Children Memorial Fund,” as well as the Dallas Arboretum‘s “The Caroline Rose Hunt Tribute Fund.”
Despite Caroline’s death this past week, this Saturday is Christmas, Easter and New Year’s all rolled into one for a couple of Dallas CASA “clients” — Robert (11) and Kesley (10), who will be adopted out of the foster system by Trisha and Eric, whose “day job is encouraging religious organizations to have a culture of helping children through foster care and adoption.”
According to Dallas CASA’s Rosanne Lewis, “They [Kesley and Robert] have been in care since 2012, when they and their six siblings were removed from their mother’s care. These two have been in their current home since June of 2018 and are excited to be adopted. Throughout the case, they’ve had the same advocates – Kathy Seiling and Ginger Jordan – who were college roommates and decided to be advocates together.”
Adopted youngsters are very special. Not only do they have a second chance of having a safe, secure and loving family, the adopting families have the opportunity to be part of a life-change experience. It is organizations like Dallas CASA that help to protect children in their journey to a safe haven.
