Candid Foster Care & Adoption Information
Trauma-Informed and Child-Centered
Because of the marketing and public narratives around fostering and adoption there is lots of misinformation. Causing many well-meaning adults to approach foster care or adoption with a desire to “save a child” or “get a family.” Often the desire to help is sincere, but naive. The recruitment agencies often omit the complex realities of fostering and adoption. Causing great people to approach complex situations with rose-colored glasses. Though innocent, great harm can occur when we fail to look at the painful realities of foster care and adoption from objective perspectives and experiences.
Often families are convinced to engage based on the “need” for children to have safe homes. No matter how desperate the need is, we must never dismiss the magnitude of the decision. Fostering and adoption is not for every family, but the need for child safety and protection is. It is imperative that we remove the emotional hype and answer hard questions. When we do, we can produce better long-term outcomes for everyone involved. We are here to empower more families to approach the process with a trauma-informed and child-centered focus.
