Lone Star CASA celebrates Rockwall County Adoption Day

ROCKWALL, TX (Nov. 22, 2021) – November is National Adoption Month, and Lone Star CASA is celebrating and supporting the many families in our community who have welcomed a child into their home through adoption on Nov. 10 at the Rockwall County Courthouse.

“As advocates for the best interest of children in foster care, we at CASA have seen family take many forms. All loving families are beautiful, and we are excited to be a part of their special celebration today,” said Lauren Rowe, executive director of Lone Star CASA.

CASA volunteers are everyday citizens from the community who are screened and trained, and appointed by a judge to advocate for a child’s best interest in court. They work collaboratively with the professionals on the child’s case, including the caseworker, attorneys and others. Their top priority is to advocate for the child to reunify with their parents whenever safe and possible. When this is not an option, they advocate for the child to live with and be adopted by other family members or friends, or with a caring adoptive family.

“Every family’s journey to get here has been different but I think it’s certainly an exciting day to celebrate new families coming together in our community,” said Anne-Marie Jordan, CPS Supervisor for Child Protective Services.

“This month and today, we are thankful for this time to show our appreciation and celebrate the diverse families in our community who are nurturing and raising children they’ve adopted from foster care.  And we are grateful for the children in our community to be given a safe, permanent and unconditionally loving home where they can heal and grow.”
