Adoption and Permanency: How To Help Families Become Successful
Updated: Nov 17, 2020
An interview with Adam Pertman by Marion Cook, an adoptive parent, and author:
Permanency is the new word in the air around adoption.
Recently I had the pleasure to attend the North American Council on Adoptable Children Conference where I learned more about this concept from the guru of permanency himself, Adam Pertman.
In his session, entitled “Reshaping Adoption for the 21st Century: Progressing from Child Placement to Family Success,” Pertman challenged us to consider what is a permanent family and what can we do to help families become successful.
