    Extended Foster Care - Vicki Richardson

    in Lifestyle

    "Permanency needs to be based on youth's decision.  We need to make adult adoption easier to achieve and the state needs to pay for them.  We need to do a better job for our youth from 18 to 21, regardless of if they are in extended foster care or not.  Another interesting practice is the foster/adoptive parents opening dialogue with birthparents, and young adults receiving more support as they navigate through the process of reconnecting with their birthparents."  - Vicki Richardson
