How is an open adoption established through foster care? When you get placed with a foster child, its through the system, right? So when/how do you get in contact with the birth family to talk about contact?

Geez.... I hate when people answer a question about something they know nothing about.
People who adopt through the system are not placed with typical foster children. They are placed with children who are in the process of having the parental rights terminated. When people talk about adoption through foster care it does NOT mean that they are taking in children as foster children with the hopes of them becoming adoptable. This is two different set of circumstances. Two different types of placement.
And not all children in foster care are there because they have been abused. Some people willingly give up there rights. Sometimes it's a child with medical issues, sometimes it's a parent with low IQ who just can not care for a child. There are circumstances when there can be an open adoption with a biological parent, grandparent, or siblings.

My daughter has 3 siblings in other homes. We asked the social worker to contact the adoptive parents and give them our information if they wanted it. We received a letter from one sibling's family where they stated they would not be interested in any contact. But we did get full contact information about the other two (together in one home). On the day of the adoptions all three families were there, but the one hid down the hall and asked for private proceedings. They did come out for a quick picture with all the siblings together, then left. My family and the other family did our adoptions together. We keep in contact and see them about twice a year. There is a huge age difference so we don't get together more often.
