It was the poor English Law that lead to the development and regulation of family foster care. Indentured facilities allowed abuse and mistreatment, even though it was a step forward from almshouses (charitable homes that were built for poor people to live in) where children didn’t learn a trade and were open to terrible surroundings.

Charles Loring Brace a minister and a director of the New York Children’s Aid Society began the free foster care movement in 1853 because he was troubled by many children sleeping in the streets.
From their study, they found a high percentage of achieving reunification taking place when foster youth are placed with a relative or kinship foster family, then a nonrelative foster family (Lopez, Del Valle, Montserrat, & Bravo, 2013). Lopez and her colleagues, found this finding to be contradictive from past studies, where the findings suggest reunification is more likely to occur when foster youth are in a nonrelative foster placement (Lopez, Del Valle, Montserrat, & Bravo, 2013). However, the assumption is that when children are in a relative placement, visitation and other interactions occur more often than in a nonrelative foster placement (Lopez, Del Valle, Montserrat, & Bravo,
Foster care is full-time substitute care of children outside of their home by people other than their biological, adoptive, or legal guardians. Children are removed from their own homes and placed in foster care in a variety of reasons. Foster homes fulfill an essential social need by providing for the physical health, emotional well-being, and daily care of children who, for various reasons, have been separated from their parents. This is what foster care is supposed to be about helping children in need. In this day in age in you ask someone about foster they only see what on tv.

This form of foster care sent children to the western states to live in rural homes.

I have for some experience with the Foster Care System. I use to provide Foster Care in my own for numerous years for children of all ages. In my opinion, the Foster Care System needs a lot of work, however, the quality of care depending on who the case of a social worker and the Foster parents is for the child.

Kelly Barber Southern New Hampshire University Forensic Psychology Child custody is defined as ”the care, control, and maintenance of a child, which a court may award to one of the parents following a divorce or separation proceeding” (Child Custody, 2016).

Our foster care system was developed in the 19 century, and it all started with Charles Loring Brace taking in homeless children. The system has come a long way since it started by passing laws, such as the child abuse prevention and treatment act, that protect children, and among another things, however, it still has problems. Some of the major issues they have are children placements, preparing them for adulthood, the rules and regulations with the foster parents, and drug abuse among teens in foster care.

Sometimes this is a great thing for the child, but sometimes we unfortunately have to hear the tragic stories of children who inevitably fall through the cracks of the system.
