  • CPASA was glad to receive this message today. The writer asked that we post it anonymously:

    Early this morning one of your CPASA members, an RN at Perry Memorial, gave me her time, shoulder and heart when I needed someone to cry with after taking my 16 year old daughter into the ER. My daughter was adopted by my husband and I from the foster care system, after coming to us at 14 years old, and is considered a "high risk" case (her biological parents are addicts) and her behaviors have been ramped up lately. I cannot remember the nurse's name but am hoping to to reconnect with her. I used to sit on CPASA and know the great work that you do. You would be very proud of the comfort that she gave to me today. I am so thankful! I would love to reconnect with her if possible.
