National Adoption Month 2019
Youth Voices: Why Family Matters

Explore what family means to you and the questions you have about being adopted and discuss these issues with your caseworker and other trusted adults.

Ask your caseworker about ways to connect with youth and young adults who have been adopted from foster care, so you can hear about their experiences.

Consider what information you would feel comfortable sharing with prospective families. Look at the In-Depth Profiles for ideas.

Identify people who are important to you that you would like to reconnect with and ask your caseworker to help you.
