Family Focus Adoption Philosophies
Family Focus's philosophies have evolved out of the staff's experiences as adoptive parents, adopted persons and child welfare professionals. The perspectives reflected in these writings are derived from deeply held beliefs about what it means to be parents, what it means to love and ultimately, what it means to be human.
The behavior of childen determines only where they live, not whether or not they get to have a family. Children have a right not to accept our values for them: choosing 'institution behavior' over 'community behavior' is a valid option for a child.
