Helping Children and Youth Develop and Maintain Connections
This booklet addresses some ways – including open adoptions – to preserve and build connections for children and youth. It was written to support all those who work with foster youth to think creatively about how to maintain connections for children; how to help them preserve their life stories; how to ensure that they heal and grow in loving and connected environments; and how to help them have proud connections to their past.
