Abstract
The main analysis of this paper centers around the foster care system and the effects of foster care on the children who are thrust into it. The jurisdiction will be focused on the United States as a whole, with some State comparison. In Part II, a general description of foster care will be looked at. Part III distinguishes the two different types of foster care, kinship and non-relative foster care. Part IV contains discussions dealing with the process generally, and what leads children to foster care. Following that section, Part V extensively deals with the effects on the children, including any psychological, social, and physical effects. Later on in Part VI, additional recommendations on how to improve the foster care system will be looked into. Finally, an overall conclusion will try to summarize things and put them into perspective.
