Vickie is a seasoned advocate whose first case began in March 2014. Now on her third case, Vickie remains passionate for the children she serves.
It is a common misconception that once children are removed from their home they will not return. In fact, family reunification is the goal for the majority of cases. CPS assigns service plans to the biological parents in an effort to correct the problems leading to child removal.
On Vickie's current case, her investigation has shown that the biological mom has worked very hard in achieving every goal set out for her by the State. At the same time, the child was not thriving at her foster placement and being bullied by the other children placed there.
Vickie has remained vigilant in visiting her little girl, voicing her concerns on placement, and making sure the biological mom is ready to regain custody. With a backlog of cases, the system has a tendency to move slowly, however, Vickie maintains constant contact with all parties involved so that this sweet girl can get home as soon as possible. We are all very blessed to have Vickie as a strong voice for our CASA kiddos.
Congratulation, Vickie, and thank you for all you do!
