A 13-year old boy was dropped off at Children's Protective Services by his parents. His parents no longer wanted custody of him; they chose drugs instead. Once in the foster-care system, he was labeled unadoptable. A hearing was set to put him into permanent foster care, he told one of the CASA advocates, "That's not right, I didn't do anything wrong. I want a mom and a dad." CASA advocates stood by his side and 2 months and 10 days short of his 17th birthday, he was adopted. He will always have a family to go home to.
