We are deeply indebted to Andrew Turnell and Susie Essex for identifying and teaching us all of the things we have learned about a simple child protection practice that works well. We also want to thank Kevin Campbell and Family Finding for motivating us to think more clearly about foster care. Many Minnesota Counties and State staff contributed to our learning journey. Most critically we’ve met many, many amazing people who have helped and challenged us along the way, and who continue to do so.
