Fostering 8

Standard Foster Care

Traditional foster parents are available to care for children who are dependents of the court. While the child is in care, the birth parents are given a plan for reunification by the court system. The child will be reunified with his or her parents if the court deems it appropriate and safe.

The medical needs of these children are ranging and these fragile children need specialized care to help them be nurtured toward optimal health, both physically and cognitively.
