What is foster care?
Today’s foster care system is designed to protect and nurture children and support permanency, most often this is return home, but can also be adoption, placement with relatives, or living independently, but connected with a family. Children in foster care have been removed from their homes because of abuse, neglect, or special family circumstances. Even though this is for the children’s well-being, it is still a difficult time for them. Foster families provide not only a home, but also caring, understanding and guidance. When returning home is not possible, adoptive families provide the permanency every child deserves: a forever family to call their own
