I have a question about foster care...we've adopted through foster care, so I am familiar with it. I've seen a few answers on here about how if the Bparents rights aren't terminated, then the child is moved to another foster home. Why is that? Why isn't the child just left in the home of the original foster parents even if the TPR isn't signed? It doesn't make sense to me to move a foster child to another home just because the parents' rights aren't going to be terminated. Is that just another huge flaw in the foster care system?Answer Question
I don't know the answer to this question either. I was in 5 different foster families before I was adopted at age 6. (I was taken from my parents at age 5 along with my infant brother.) I do know that the first home I was in was more of a temporary foster home...for the kids where they didn't know where to put them after emergency removal.
