Not everyone has the same type of family, but we all have something in common

That’s why youth who have experienced Canada’s child welfare system, Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada and Tsehay from The Wiggles have teamed up to create ‘Something in Common’.

FACSFLA is so proud of Suzie Brooks, a former youth in care, but more importantly a college graduate, keynote speaker and now her experience is coming to life in this amazing new children’s publication.

A few words from Suzie: A group of former youth in care, including myself, attended a session with Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada and Something in Common publishers. We shared our stories and talked about what we want to see in a book with diverse family dynamics like ours. I shared my story about how I entered care, which was that I moved in with my best friend and her parents became my foster parents. I also reminisced about dancing to The Wiggles when I was a kid and how happy of a memory it is for me. My story inspired the character Casey, who lives with her best friend and her best friend’s parents became her foster parents. She loves making friendship bracelets and dancing to The Wiggles with her friend. I am so happy to see stories with different family relationships that truthfully reflect the world around us.”
