The Ten Most Surprising Things About Foster Care
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.
