Information is Power

I am not a big fan of The Terminator/Governor but he appears to be doing something right.

Do I feel the tide shifting?

Sometimes I think I do.

From the Adoption list-serve…

CALIFORNIA STATUTE PUTS EMPHASIS ON PLACEMENT WITH EXTENDED FAMILY
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed the Relative Caregiver Bill (AB298) into law, allowing foster children greater access to permanent placement with extended family members. The statute allows for extended family members to be given legal guardianship as a preference over adoption by non-family members. In addition, the law – enacted in October – requires relative caregivers to be given information regarding the options of legal guardianship and adoption, including the long-term benefits and consequences of each option.

To read the law, go to: http://www.legislature.ca.gov/port-bilinfo.html and search by bill number.
