Putting the Pieces Together: The Significance of the Child’s Story

NCFA Releases Adoption Advocate No. 114 | Putting the Pieces Together: The Significance of the Child’s Story

One Merry Baby Christmas

Throughout a child’s life, they will have questions about their past, whether they were adopted through foster care, infant, intercountry, kinship, or transracial adoption. In the December issue of the Adoption Advocate, Debbie Wynne anticipates some of those common questions and poses ways in which adoptive parents can proactively and lovingly support those needs, build a safe and trusting relationship with their child, and provide healthy opportunities for their child to learn and grow.

IF YOU BELIEVE EVERY CHILD MUST HAVE A PERMANENT FAMILY TO BE LOVED AND PROTECTED, YOUR VOICE MATTERS TODAY!

“We are called for such a time as this and we won’t give up until every child has the opportunity to be loved and cared for in a forever family.”

  • We believe in the goals of Save Adoptions
  • Every child deserves a safe, loving, permanent family
  • For children without parents due to death, abandonment or termination of rights, adoption should be readily available in their own country or, if not possible within their own country in a reasonable period of time, through intercountry adoption.
  • Adoption should be available for every eligible child with as few obstacles as possible, through a transparent, ethical and honest adoption system.
  • The government’s role in intercountry adoption should be to support the human rights of a child to a permanent family and to encourage other countries to develop adoption systems that are transparent, ethical and honest and protect the rights of a child.
  • Institutionalization of children should be a last resort for children for whom a permanent family is not available.
