A Reason, a Season, or a Lifetime: Relational Permanence among Young Adults with Foster Care Backgrounds 
This study from Chapin Hall conducted in-depth interviews and created personal network maps with twenty-nine young adults participating in a program offering resources to help them make successful transitions to adulthood. The aim of this study was to explore their social support networks and examine how foster care might constrain or facilitate supportive relationships into adulthood. The report closes with implications for practice and policy. (2008)
