Tip Sheet for Children in Foster Care
The National Association of Social Workers has released an adoption and foster care tip sheet written for children that focuses on questions that children and youth in foster care may have. Topics vary and include why the child was placed in foster care, what a child can do to make foster care a positive experience, and what part the court system plays in foster care. A set of definitions the child may find useful while reading the tip sheet is also provided.
