This edition of CBX is intended to encourage all readers to consider National Adoption Month as a time to reflect on the importance of family—no matter how it is configured or formed. It is a time to honor the critical role family, familial support, and connection play in everyone’s life and commit to being "all in" for families. This edition will feature updates on efforts the Administration for Children and Families, the Children's Bureau, and other partners are making nationally to promote family support and connection across the permanency continuum, with special attention to unification, reunification, kinship care, and adoption. The edition will also feature responses from experts across the country to the question: What does it mean to be "all in" for families?
