Foster Parents: Although this term has a wide variety of possible definitions, it is generally used to refer to adults who are licensed by the state- or county to provide a temporary home for children whose birth parents are unable to care for them. These services may be provided with or without compensation, and can often continue for several months or even years, depending on the circumstances of the child and the foster parents.
