With the support of Parenting Education Classes Xavier’s parents move towards custody

With the support of Parenting Education Classes Xavier’s parents move towards custody

Xavier is just six months old and was born with neonatal maternal poly substance abuse. His parents have not consistently visited him during his numerous hospitalizations, and have not provided daily care for him since his birth. He is currently in foster care pending his parents being awarded custody. His parents have been referred to our Nurturing Parenting class several times as part of the custody process, but have been unable to attend due to their own medical issues.

 

Our team encouraged his parents to enroll in the parenting education class and provided them a safe space to learn. During this cycle of the program the couple has been very responsive, attentive, and engaged in and out of class. The parents have been grateful to hear other parents’ experiences and share their own. They appreciate the attendance incentives as they are able to buy things for Xavier. They are now at a much better place now and are thankful for this program’s support.

 

‘We have learned a lot from the curriculum and the other parents, and are encouraged to be on our way to getting custody of him.’ – Xavier’s parents.
