As a star on the hit TV show “Dallas,” Charlene Tilton was the sassy and beautiful Lucy Ewing. When the show ended, Tilton spent her time dedicated to causes that are near and dear to her heart, especially children in the foster care system, and helping raise awareness to couples and individuals — in the straight and LGBT community, about the opportunities of opening hearts and homes to children through foster/adoption.
Many don’t know that Tilton had spent time in the foster care system as a child and has a unique perspective as someone who has experienced the fears and joys of being “in the system.”
Tilton spoke to RaiseAChild.US about her childhood and being an advocate.
