Quarterly Newsletter - Spring 2017
IN THIS ISSUE:
Welcome to The Donaldson Adoption Institute’s Spring 2017 Newsletter. As we on reflect on National Foster Care Month, we stress the importance of improving the lives of children and young people and their extended families experiencing foster care. This year’s theme, “Empowering Caregivers, Strengthening Families,” should inspire all of us to develop solutions to better serve, protect and strengthen all families, especially those that are experiencing unimaginable challenges.
In this issue, we highlight our first online curriculum, Openness in Adoption: What a Concept! – a training for parents and professionals interested in ensuring open and authentic relationships in adoption, the introduction of the National Adoption and Foster Care Home Study Act, and Child Welfare Information Gateway’s robust webpage with vital resources and information on National Foster Care Month.
