Speaking from a CASA volunteer standpoint I can say that I have witnessed how a child’s life has been impacted when they were removed from the home especially when they are younger. We as adults sometimes undermind a child’s emotions. We tend to think “oh their little they won’t understand or their fine. Adults sometimes are too busy and forget to check in with their children and ask if they are okay. Most children will say they are fine when they are not because they feel unheard; that their caregiver isn’t asking because they care but to check a box saying I asked and they were okay. As part of the little’s community we have shown our Littles that although they might be small they have a voice and deserve to be heard.
