Celebrating our child welfare professionals
We honor our unsung heroes all year long!
It has always been an interest of mine to care for children. From volunteering at my local daycare center to interning with a mentoring program in college, I realized I enjoyed working with children and my future was in child advocacy.
To me, all children should feel they have a place where they belong with someone who will love them unconditionally. Unfortunately, too many kids don’t have that. As child welfare professionals, our job is to strengthen families and bring them together. When I hear a child laugh heartily or come across a family so happy, I am reminded that this is why I do this; I helped make that happen.
Every child and family I have come across have left an impression on me, and each one is special in a unique way. It’s great to know that you’ve touched someone’s life.
