In this co-authored article, one contributor presents a case story from an interview with a social worker in Slovenia, while five others offer commentaries on ethical aspects of the case. The story comes from a practitioner working with a pregnant young woman, arranging for adoption following birth. The article ends with reflections on the value of exploring multiple perspectives and engaging in dialogue in developing ethical understandings and actions.
