Bryant’s per­spec­tive

Austin American-Statesman - - OPINION -

Re: July 14 ar­ti­cle “Leader knows fos­ter care from the in­side.”

Court Ap­pointed Spe­cial Ad­vo­cates of Travis County is ex­cited about the per­spec­tive that Gigi Bryant brings to the Depart­ment of Fam­ily and Pro­tec­tive Ser­vices Coun­cil. We ad­mire and ap­plaud her achieve­ments, es­pe­cially in light of the chal­lenges she faced as a child grow­ing up in the Texas fos­ter care sys­tem. This in­spir­ing pro­file is bound to en­cour­age oth­ers to over­come ad­ver­sity and achieve suc­cess.

The hard­ships of grow­ing up in fos­ter care pre­vent suc­cess for nu­mer­ous chil­dren. For­tu­nately, in our 25 years of work, we have met strong young peo­ple who have per­se­vered and cre­ated fu­tures as bright as Ms. Bryant’s.

For those look­ing to make a dif­fer­ence for abused and ne­glected chil­dren, be­come a CASA vol­un­teer. For chil­dren who feel that no one can hear them, you can be their voice in the court­room and in our com­mu­nity.
