Is foster parenting a right?

No, foster parenting is not a right. There are times when the agency decides not to follow through with certifying a potential foster parent(s). This may be because clearances come back with concerns, a home does not meet agency standards, or it is         mutually agreed that foster parenting is not right for the potential foster parent at this time in his/her life. This does not necessarily happen often, and if there are concerns, we ask that the potential foster parent is honest from the beginning, as the agency will always be honest as well.
