Ampersand Families was proud to host the Family Builder’s Network for their annual think tank. We were so proud to have so many of the leaders in the field of adolescent permanency all in the same room….at our place! One whole day of the two-day meeting was dedicated to stakeholder input for the Longitudinal study into the outcomes of older child adoption that Ampersand Families and Wilder Research are diligently developing. Thank you so much to everyone involved for this extraordinary opportunity.
