We support families in understanding the value of honouring their child’s ethnic/birth culture. We believe adoptive families should feel secure in exploring cultural connections in their area. A sense of identity equals a sense of belonging
We are constantly developing our identity, from birth to the end of our lives. We build it based on our relationships to relatives, friends, community, geography, language and other social factors. Identity plays a key role in healthy child development. When a child feels a sense of belonging to family, community and peers he or she is better able to deal with adversity.
