-Every child has the right to grow in a family
-Institutionalizing children provides a temporary solution to children’s need but has a lasting negative impact on children when they grow up
What is family reunification?
Family reunification in child welfare refers to the process of returning children in foster care with their birth parents or close relatives
Why Family Reunification?
It’s simple, because family preservation is still the best outcome for a child in foster care. Massive amounts of research has shown that separating children from their birth families is traumatic and it has long-lasting effects on their mental, emotional, and physical health. So if there is a possibility of reunifying the family, that’s still a better long term solution for a child compared to removing all family and cultural bonds. Foster care is intended to provide a temporary safe place for children who have nowhere else to go. During that time the birth parents have the opportunity to improve themselves and their situation with the hope for reunification.
