How to Become a Foster Parent - Finding Your Reasons and Resources
What exactly is foster care and the role of a foster parent? According to the National Adoption Center, The foster care system is a temporary arrangement in which adults provide for the care of a child or children whose birth parent is unable to care for them. Foster care can be informal or arranged through the courts or a social service agency. The goal for a child in the foster care system is usually reunification with the birth family, but may be changed to adoption when this is seen as in the child's best interest. Finding information on how to become a foster parent can be a daunting task, however.
