When a child is removed from their home and placed in foster care, it is a goal to reunify the child with the parents when and if it is safe to do so. During June, which is National Reunification Month, we recognize the importance of working to bring children and parents back together in a safe and loving home.
Of course, part of what makes reunification possible is the temporary care provided by foster families after children are removed from their homes. We celebrate the parents who provide children with a safe and loving home and help them heal from the trauma of removal. Here at DePelchin, we work closely with foster families to provide the support they need so that children receive the best possible care. We are always looking for quality foster families, and we encourage anyone who is considering becoming a foster parent to sign up for one of our virtual foster & adoption orientation sessions.
DePelchin also assists in the search and reunion of adopted individuals and their birth parents. These services are limited to those who were adopted or lived at DePelchin; or children who were formerly in foster care in Texas. Click here to learn more about these services.
We applaud all parents who are working to reunify with their children, as well as the foster families who provide loving homes until reunification becomes possible.
