Spend Your Heart for Christmas
web posted December 9, 2010
Volunteer Guardians ad Litem “spend their hearts”—not just during the
Christmas season but throughout the year. They realize that time spent
with children in foster care is a gift that lasts forever. Their
efforts on behalf of these children cannot be measured in dollars and
cents. Just this year eight new Volunteers have been trained to take
cases in Edgefield County. I want to thank them for their service to
the children of our community, without them the best interest of our
children could not be relayed to the court.
With completion of the free training, adults over 21 years of age will
develop knowledge and skills necessary to advocate for children
involved with the Department of Social Services and the Family Court
system. In a few short hours each month, you can impact a child’s life
and help them find a safe, loving, permanent home. Sharing
your first hand knowledge of a child with Family Court Judges can be
the key to shaping a child’s future.
Give the gift that keeps on giving. Stand up and be heard on
behalf of a child who has been abused and neglected. Speak for
them. Let them know that they too are a gift, and deserve to have
an opportunity for a better life.
If you have a desire to help children and be their “voice”, please
contact Desiree′ B. Council at the McCormick & Edgefield County
Guardian ad Litem office. Become a Volunteer Guardian ad Litem
and spend from your heart on a child in this coming year. It will
be the best investment you’ve ever made. We hope to have our next
training in January, 2011. I need to have at least three
applicants from Edgefield County to hold training in Edgefield.
Have a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year.
