|On Thursday, September 29th, 2022, AdoptOntario invites you to Forever Bond, an Online Adoption Event. Not only will you have an opportunity to learn more about adoption and available resources, but you will also learn about amazing groups of siblings looking for permanency.
What is Forever Bond?
The connection between siblings is like no other, and this is especially true for children and youth who have lived through adverse experiences. Maintaining these relationships provides young people with a sense of safety during difficult times, reduces trauma of separation and loss, and helps to build their identity. Children who live in extended care may not only lose their family connections, but their cultural connections, community ties, and affiliations. Although finding families open to adopting siblings can be a challenge, keeping siblings together is a priority. What we have learned is how important a sibling relationship is for a child’s emotional development and sense of self. Through this event, we hope to find those wonderful, special families who will allow these siblings to grow and learn side by side, so they can continue their life story, together.
