26 Aug Carla and Mike
Carla and Mike have done respite for Angels since November 2014. Carla and Mike, along with their son Drew, have opened their home to many children between the ages of 6 months to 4 years including sibling sets and children with special needs. They have handled each respite opportunity with strength, poise, and a little bit of laughter. Most recently, they opened their home to an 18 month old boy during a short term placement and showered much love on him during his transition. Carla, who was a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate), was passionate about advocating for foster children but wanted to be able to have a more direct impact on the children. Mike, in support of his wife, wanted to find a way to give back to his community. Through his wife’s experience as a CASA, he was made aware of the great need to provide exceptional care to children in foster care. We are thankful for this family who gives so much support to the Angels foster families – we are so lucky to have Carla and Mike on the Angels team!
