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.
Pertman is the author of Adoption Nation and the president and founder of the National Center for Adoption and Permanency.
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.
