Foster children

A foster child is a child who does not live in his original family, but in another family, his foster family.

Foster children come into a foster family from very different backgrounds:

  • Parents are unable to care for their children due to death, serious illness or accident
  • Parents are in a serious crisis due to external circumstances such as unemployment or separation and divorce
  • Parents are overwhelmed with everyday life, are too busy with themselves and cannot be reliable parents to their children
