Imagine that you enter foster care with a brother or sister, your only comfort in a world of uncertainty. Then, hours or days later, your sole support is gone. You’re put in separate homes, and have no idea, if, or when, you’ll see your siblings again. This concern comes to light in “Struggling for Sibling Connections”, our In Focus feature in the spring edition of Notes From the Field, the Children’s Rights newsletter.
The issue also previews “Fostering the Future,” Children’s Rights blog-a-day campaign for National Foster Care Month. “Being abused wasn’t the worst of it,” writes Tomas Rios. “The countless nights I went to sleep hungry and hoping to never wake up again are what I recall most vividly.”
That is why Children’s Rights strives to improve foster care across the country. Check out “Reform Watch,” to see how our advocacy has advanced child welfare reform, from Oklahoma to Michigan to the District of Columbia, and “In the Courtroom,” to see why your support is so critical to our current campaigns.
