According to government stats, more than babies are now being born in Canada each year. Each of these children comes into the world with the biological, social, and emotional supports of 2 or more pre-existing families. Each child may also belong to many other families throughout his or her lifetime.

Socially, each child arrives in a family that already has a social status, a culture, and one or more languages, and that lives in a rural or urban community in a particular geographical location.
