04. Fundamentals in Adoption

This section addresses the very basis of adoption.  Topics in this section include grief and loss, the permanency triad, and the CORE issues.  All involved in the adoption process should understand the basics so they can effectively work within the system.  These three issues impact the thoughts, feelings and behaviors of everyone intimately involved in an adoption.  This understanding will help all involved work more positively toward timely permanence for Pennsylvania’s children.
