Project Description

Ben

The Situation

Twelve-year-old Ben was on track to be adopted by his foster parent. However, the adoption agency noticed marks and bruises on Ben’s body and put a stop to the adoption process. What the agency didn’t know was that the marks were caused by seizures brought on by a previous stress-related medical condition.

CASA Steps In

Ben’s advocate looked into the situation and learned that Ben’s foster parent had been seeking medical attention for his condition and reported her findings.

The Outcome

After reviewing the Advocate’s report, the adoption agency agreed Ben’s foster parent had been looking out for his best interests and the adoption process is now moving forward again.
