There are thousands of former foster kids who’ve aged out of the system and gone on to do amazing things with their lives. Their past has not defined them. Instead, they’ve risen above it and aim to make the world a better place.
The Future is Wide Open
About the Author: Holly Schlaack
Holly Schlaack can’t tell you where her undeniable passion for foster children originated. All she knows is it led her on a wild ride starting as a twenty-something children’s services caseworker fresh out of college to a forty-something nationally known speaker training a variety of audiences on topics related to infants and toddlers in foster care. Between those points, as a Guardian Ad Litem (GAL) she represented the best interests of abused and neglected children in juvenile court, created and managed an award-winning child advocacy program, co-founded the Southwest Chapter of the Ohio Association for Infant Mental Health, and wrote Invisible Kids: Marcus Fiesel’s Legacy. Not to worry. She’s just getting started.
