Experience the Chosen Effect
All foster, kinship and adopted children have experienced loss and trauma. This trauma affects their brains, bodies, biology and beliefs, sometimes resulting in out-of-control behavior on a daily basis. Often, parents want to give up.
Chosen gives parents the tools they need to keep going so that their children can heal and their family can thrive.
Since starting our parent education and mentoring programs, 100% of parents who have participated for at least six months have not quit.
The Chosen Effect. Zero disruptions. Zero failed adoptions.
