ConnectSiblings.org created this video to show us the plight of siblings in foster care. In Arizona, 75% of the siblings in foster care are separated. Usually they are able to visit as they gather together at agencies, but not in a natural home environment. As this video shows us, their visits are short, infrequent, and parting is very sad.
Connect Siblings offers events where brothers and sisters in foster care can get together for sporting events, field trips, and other fun activities. This gives them opportunities to enjoy each other in a more natural environment. Additionally, they hold an annual summer camp for siblings to attend and enjoy being together.
Perhaps one of the saddest facts of foster care is the possibility of the separation of siblings.
