A desperate problem – no easy fix
Problems have plagued native-run family agencies, including the deaths of children. Sadly, solutions seem far away “I would like to talk to children. I have been up and down, to hell and back, and I don’t want them to go into it. The talking, the first words, the crawling – I missed it. That’s not right, every parent should see that.” – Georgette Johnny
