Hi - just read your guardian article and I agree with lots of the points you've made. We have adopted 3 children and are still in touch with foster carers as we thought if they get used to seeing other important people disappear from their lives how will they know that we're not going to disappear at some point too. It's been tricky but I think worth it. More social work departments are encouraging keeping in touch with foster carers but it is difficult to do for everyone concerned. I think it's great that you're looking into how best to manage moves for children and bringing new research into current practice.
