“Being a Wake County Guardian ad Litem for 14 years remains one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.  In those 14 years, I have seen several children reunited with their families. I have also seen several families created through adoption. I saw a mother kick a decade long substance abuse addition to get her children back. I have gotten a text from an adoptive parent that said only, “Our adoption decree just came in the mail!” I have had lots of kids proudly show me around their new rooms, pointing out their books and toys. I have seen Kindergarten graduation and summer camp photos and felt a part of all my GAL children’s lives. I am very proud of the tiny role I have played in the lives of a handful of children through the Wake County Guardian ad Litem Program.  I hope some of them learned from me, a fraction of what I learned from them.”
—First Lady Kristin Cooper, Advocating Since 2004

“Getting to know and advocate for my assigned GAL children has been the greatest reward I could have asked for through volunteering.”
—Jared Simmons, Advocating Since 2016

 

 "We (Guardians ad Litem) seek to be a source of good memories for the children as they come to know our caring, our interest in them, and our work on their part with nothing sought in return.” — Austin Connors, Advocating Since 2006
