Description

The Capacity Building Center for States’ Then and Now: Looking Back and Moving Forward in Support of Children, Youth, and Families video series (“Then and Now”) features five sets of digital stories that present family experiences at two points in time. Four adoptive parents and one young adult formerly in care tell their personal stories and speak candidly about moments of joy and accomplishment as well as struggles and sadness. Examining family experiences at different time periods can provide valuable insight into needed supports and services. Looking backward and forward provides a chance to identify actions and services that made a difference and to consider missed opportunities for what might have been helpful.
