FAW: The Importance of Sibling Relationships
The Importance of Sibling Relationships
The focus in foster care is often on a child’s relationship with his or her parent(s) and the efforts to restore that connection. Children in care live outside their parental home for a period of time, and in the case of some, for the remainder of their childhoods. We know these separations create anxiety, grief, and loss for both parent and child. Often, what further impacts the trauma of living apart is the separation from sibling(s).
