Entertainment Lawyer on a Mission to Help Foster Kids

See on Scoop.itElevate Christian Network News | Christian World News and Events

Miles Cooley, orphaned at 5, is a high-end lawyer. Now with his friend lobbyist Duncan McFetridge he comes to Sacramento to advocate for foster kids.

 

Cee Harmon’s insight:

Miles Cooley’s mother had him when she was 17 in 1969, and fell in with a tough crowd, bikers. She’d leave for days at a time. One day he came home, and “she was lying on the floor dead.” She had overdosed. He was 5.

In 2010, he lobbied for a bill backed by his friend John Burton, the former Senate president pro tem who created a foundation to help foster children, that requires the state to care for foster kids until they turn 21. That was a major advance.

In this video, WDIV-TV Detroit Local News 4 does a report on Lutheran Social Services of Michigan and their work with foster children. Even though most people want to adopt infants and toddlers, older kids and teenagers are just as are just as deserving of a home. The kids featured in this news story just want to be loved and have a family for Christmas. The representative from Lutheran Social Services said, “I couldn’t imagine my children not having someone there for them.” Lutheran Services in America is one of the largest charitable organizations in America.  http://elevatechristiannetwork.com/lutheran-social-services-sylvia-doesnt-know-what-it-feels-like-to-be-loved/
