Ava is just 5 months old. She was removed from her mother at birth because she tested positive for opioids. Her foster mother is having trouble finding the right formula to keep Ava at a healthy weight. She needs to see the doctor every two weeks. 

Ava needs an advocate to help monitor her health and development. She needs a Court Appointed Special Advocate, a CASA volunteer.
