Someone There for Me : Everyday Heroes Through the Eyes of Teens in Foster Care
Many children travel through the foster care system completely alone, with no one to help them get the support they need and/or to help them fight for their rights, both in court and in the foster care system. Some children, however, are lucky enough to be represented by a court-appointed special advocate or a guardian ad litem - volunteers who devote themselves to helping children who cannot help themselves. Someone There for Me tells the stories of these children and the people who helped them to navigate the foster care system and build a future for themselves. Written in the youths' own words, these stories are an inspiration to everyone who wants to help children and demonstrate the difference just one person can make.
