Identity, Ancestry, And The Importance Of Family Preservation
There's no question that loss is a major storyline of the foster and adoption journey. Children lose their first families, their first homes, and their sense of normal and familiar. But equally, they often lose their identity, connection to who they are, and subsequently, their purpose. It's crucial that caregivers keep a finger on this pulse and learn how to respond with compassion and understanding.
That's why we're excited to welcome Tina Bauer to the show.

Thank you this was very useful. I liked the part that was mentioned about love the child how they can be loved. Just because we all have so called conventional ways of showing affection it doesn’t necessarily work. The key is to find out what actually works and not to force what you think does.
