In this short editorial, the organization New Beginnings shares the stories of three of the families they work with who have wanted to explain what lockdown has meant for them during this peculiar time. One of the stories comes from a parent whose children were removed from her care two weeks into lockdown. Another comes from a parent whose daughter has since been reunited with her from foster care.
