It is important for foster parents and relative care providers to be a part of the team that plans for the foster children in their home.

There may be times when the opinion of foster parents or relative care providers differ from the opinion of the agency over what is best for a particular foster child. As a result, foster parents or relative care providers may disagree with the case plan or the agency's recommendations. While foster parents and relative care providers are encouraged to advocate for what they believe to be in the child's best interest, it is important to understand that the agency is ultimately responsible for making the recommendations regarding the specific plan for the child.
