What is a Family?

Mar 25, 06:03 PM

What is a family? There’s a fear that when our clients turn 18, they will learn that the families they thought they had, do not exist. There was never an emotional connection. There was only a legal one. The heartbreak of this discovery sends a young adult into the world with no emotional or practical support. Despite a child’s reliance on a parent never truly ending, we send many a child into the future alone. This is a failure not only to our client, but also to our role as a children’s attorney. In this podcast, we share tips to understanding how you can help your client find their family—their forever family. This is not a podcast about adoption selection, but one about all kids in care, whatever their goal.
