Popular Books on Foster Children

 

Foster Children are those who are raised up by the foster care or foster parents where children are provided with the same environment just like their homes. These are the children who are neglected and abused by their guardians, and that’s why they are nurtured by foster parents who are not their parents by birth. The children entering foster care have been gone through some sort of trauma or bad experiences in their life. According to statistics, at present, there are 400,000 foster children in the U.S. ranging in age from newborn babies to 21-year-old youngsters. Foster children are not different from normal children, as they also live the same life under foster care and under the guidance of their foster parents. The average time that a child spends in foster care is nearly about one year after which half of the children are reunified with their parents or adopted by foster parents within a span of one year. The placement of a child under foster care is done by government or a social service organization. The foster care is practiced in almost every country where this practice is known by different names.
