From training to recruitment, these inspiring stories are great tools for gaining perspective and highlighting the role each of us has in enhancing the lives of children and youth in foster care.
A Family Mosaic
When Benjamin began creating his video, he asked his cousin, aunt, and adoptive mother to share their own stories. Each of them offers a different perspective on kinship care, foster care, and adoption. Like a mosaic, each tale of loss, strength, and love adds up to reveal a bigger picture showing how foster care directly impacted one family.
These videos are part of the National Resource Center for Permanency and Family Connections' Digital Stories From the Field project.
