I Am Still Isabella

This story is the sequel to "I Am Isabella" and follows Isabella's experience of being removed from her home and placed with another caregiver.


I Am Still Isabella tells the story of what happens to Isabella after she is removed from her home and placed with another caregiver, her auntie.

To illustrate common occurrences in cases of child removal, the story follows Isabella as she adjusts to life in her new home, regularly meets with her caseworker and counselor and discusses her feelings about what is happening, and visits with her mother.

This story is recommended only for children who have or may experience removal in their own child welfare cases.
