For parents anticipating a child’s return home from foster or kinship care, reunification holds much promise. It’s a new start and an important milestone that marks having reached an important goal. But for resource families and workers alike, it’s very important to see reunification as a process and not an event. It’s a time of change and adjustment, discovery and challenge. Achieving timely reunification while preventing reentry into foster care has benefits at multiple levels. Children do best when raised in a stable family setting, which can support the positive effects on their cognitive, behavioral, and health outcomes. Please join us to learn how you can support successful and healthy reunifications for children that are in your care.
