Getting a Forever Family

We were excited to watch the 3 part video series “Forever Family” by reporter Catherine Pope and Global BC News. The series is about teens and young adults who are in the BC foster care system and hope to still be adopted and find their forever family. Catherine Pope speaks to real youth that are in the system waiting to be adopted, as well as older youth who were adopted into families.

One of the reasons we were so excited to see this series featured on the news is that many of the young people who come to CHV have been in the foster care system. They often come to us at 18 or 19 when they “age out” of foster care but still have not learned the skills it takes to become independent adults. Often they are still struggling with issues from their childhood and teen years. It is encouraging to see the topic of teen adoption highlighted, as we know so many youth who wished they had forever families.
