[Autom. eng. transl.] The suffering of the child who cannot remain in his family has been known for a long time and it has been tried to face it by reasoning about how suitable places can be redesigned to grow in, when it is not possible to stay with one's parents. However, there was a risk of allowing the awareness that, even succeeding in closing the institutes and placing the child in foster care or in the community, fade away, nevertheless generates suffering. This suffering concerns family members (parents, siblings, etc.), who have to suspend their daily life with the child, and the child himself, both with respect to the prospects of reunification with the family, and also when from the beginning of the I entrust it is not realistic to think of a return, if not in the long run. In fact, it is especially in cases where there seems to be little chance of the child returning home that it is important to ask how to ensure that parents do not become discouraged and close all contact. When the approach of the operators is that of participation and collaboration as equal as possible (although within the boundaries traced by the possible judicial provision), then it is possible to create a suitable context to listen, to welcome the suffering and anger of the family, to take every expectation seriously, to think about it and to look together for ways to satisfy it, or at least to approach it, if possible.
