I am digressing from the main points I wanted to make. The main points are the type of children who are placed into foster care and why they are in foster care. There are many different superficial reasons why children are placed into foster care. In my experience, in ninety-nine percent of the cases the basic under-riding fault lies with the birth parent(s). We have a saying in foster care, "THERE ARE NO BAD KIDS, JUST BAD PARENTS."
