Do Foster Parents ever adopt children placed in their care?

0

Yes. However, it must be realized that adoption is never the goal at the time a foster placement is made. Most children continue to be involved with their parents while in foster homes and most children return to their parents from foster homes. If during the course of working towards reunification the process breaks down, the child may become freed for adoption. Should this happen, the foster care provider may be given consideration as a permanent family resource in order to provide the child with continuity in his/her life.
