Lifebooks Help Reestablish Bond between Birth Mother and Child

Foster parent Jennifer Shaw explains how the Lifebook helped a child bond with her birth mother:

“We took lots of pictures, so her mom could see who she lived with and the things she did. I think it helped her bond with her mom, and it helped her mom to know that her daughter really had been safe in care.”
