Family Based Care vs Orphanage care
There is now scientific evidence of altered brain functioning as a result of early abuse and neglect. You can clearly see the difference on the image to the right, between a 3 year old child brain which has been loved and nurtured to that of a child where these neurons have not developed. This causes both long term emotional and physical damage. This is at the core of TFT's work and why we think it is so important to get children in a safe family environment.
