World Children’s Day is tomorrow, November 20th, 2021. Because of what this day represents and the awareness it brings to children’s health, family, and those that work hard to help them, we thought we would share a couple blog resources created by top researchers in academia, including this one from Regis College. Through these guides, we can build awareness around the importance of the care and guidance that children need to grow up healthy.
America’s foster care system is in crisis. Despite real efforts to effect change, over 120,000 children remain in the system awaiting a permanent family through adoption. Finding the right families requires innovative solutions and collaborative partnerships. In this issue of the Adoption Advocate from the National Council for Adoption , they highlight the work of private agencies, like Hope’s Promise, who are successfully partnering with the public sector to achieve better outcomes for kids in the foster care system. Their experiences and guidance can serve as a springboard for more agencies to expand their services into this critical area of work.
An increasing number of adoptive families are single-parent households where children have found permanency and are thriving with a Mom or Dad only.
