There are more than 400,000 children and teens in the Foster Care system throughout the nation and every single one deserves a chance at happiness, belonging, safety and love. Many of us have heard about foster care and much focuses on the negative aspects. The foster care system is a temporary arrangement where adults provide for the care of a child or children whose
birth parents are unable to care for them. Foster care is where children go when their parents cannot, for a variety of reasons, care for them. Foster care can be informal or arranged through
the courts or a social service agency and the goal is usually for the child to be reunited with their birth family but, may be changed to adoption when this is in the child’s best interest.
