FOSTER CARE- Foster Care is the temporary care in your home for a child who has been removed from his/her home due to abuse, neglect, or dependency. The goal for most children is to return to their parent(s) when the circumstances that led to the foster placement have been resolved. However, sometimes children are not able to return home and need a permanent family. This is accomplished through adoption. Oftentimes, foster parents adopt the foster children they care for.
By welcoming a child into your home and showing them love and guidance, you are giving them a gift that will benefit the child for the rest of his/her life. And while most children in foster care are returned to their parents or another family member, your time with them will allow them to live in your heart forever. RESPITE CARE -Respite Care is very short-term care of a child who already has a full-time foster placement. You would help foster parents by caring for a child in your home for a few hours to a few days.
