Foster Facts: Through No Fault of Their Own – Part 1

*This series will consist of a variety of basic facts about foster-care and aging-out to inform and give y’all an idea of where our kids have come from.

Foster children enter care, remain in care and age-out of care through no fault of their own.

They are removed from their homes for a variety of reasons. Those reasons are one or a combination of the following;

  • Abuse
  • Neglect
  • Abandonment
  • Parental Incarceration or Death
  • Or the inability of the parent to provide a safe environment.

*This last reason could be due to substance use, domestic violence, human trafficking or even a child’s truancy or behavior. In the case of a child’s behavior it often the result of early childhood trauma. In which case even behavior is not the fault of the child.  

More next time.
