Partners: Family Connections


Family Connections

We focused on family connections for this issue of Partners, because, in the world of adoption and foster care, the thoughts, feelings, and associated meanings about family and connections are not only different from others but, at times, complicated. While working through the challenges of helping children stay connected, we hope each and every one of you take a moment to celebrate small victories and the joy and wonder the diversity of your family brings to the world. Adoptive and foster families dare to tell the world that connection is important and that family is not simply defined. You all have taken the risk to change the world one connection at a time and to embrace vulnerability.
