When kids can’t live with their family, they need other adults to step in and provide permanency for them. Permanency means a child or youth has a secure place in a family and a lifelong commitment from at least one adult who can offer them love, guidance, a sense of belonging, and a connection to their culture and heritage. Sometimes permanency means legal adoption (including Aboriginal custom adoption), permanent guardianship, moral adoption, or a significant lifelong relationship with a relative or family friend.
