FOSTER CARE-RELATIVES
(2007-06-21)
(wgvu) - BILLS AIMED AT MAKING IT EASIER FOR
RELATIVES OF A CHILD TO SERVE AS FOSTER PARENTS PASSED THE STATE
HOUSE TODAY.
MICHIGAN'S FOSTER CARE SYSTEM ALREADY RELIES HEAVILY ON
RELATIVES OF CHILDREN WHO HAVE BEEN REMOVED FROM THEIR PARENTS'
HOMES.
BUT HOUSE DEMOCRATS WHO SPONSORED THE BILLS SAID THE PRACTICE
COULD BE ENCOURAGED FURTHER.
ONE BILL PASSED BY THE HOUSE WOULD REQUIRE PARENTS OF A CHILD
ENTERING FOSTER CARE TO PROVIDE A LIST OF RELATIVES FOR POTENTIAL
PLACEMENT.
THE BILLS NOW GO TO THE SENATE.
