A recent story on CBC.ca highlights the need for more Indigenous social workers. It recounts the stories of two grown foster children who decided to break the cycle when they became adults.
One was a child of a Sixties Scoop survivor who never had a stable home. One was the grandson of a residential school survivor who spent most of his childhood in care. Both were taken from their families at age two. Both fell into despair. And both were determined to not let it happen to their kids.
