Film Summary:

The Every Mother is a Working Mother Network documents the stories of mothers and grandmothers who are fighting to get their children out of foster care. Through these testimonies, their film, DHS Give Us Back Our Children, challenges the logic of the Foster Care industry by explaining how mothers are frequently—often unjustly—separated from their children.
