Photographer Karla Woodworth chose these photos not so much for the photos themselves, but for the story. The Parentii Core Researchers with others held numerous community conversations across the state of Connecticut putting the “Looking for Answers Together” issue guide to work (http://discovery.wcgmf.org/lookingforanswerstogether). There are a couple stories that have remained with Karla. This is a mom at the Manchester Community Conversation. Karla admired her strength and ability to share her story. The Mom was able to recount positve interactions with DCF and was grateful for the experience. It was a first for Karla Woodworth to hear an account of the system actually working and working well. How powerful it would be to have a group of people telling the stories of systems working rather than how they fail, to create hope rather than fear.
