HB 127: Foster Parent Consideration

H.B. 127, P.N. 130 (SATHER). This would create the Foster Parent Consideration Act.
A foster family who has cared for a foster child for six months or more would have the right to be considered as a potential adoption family should they so choose in the event the child becomes an adoptable child. Should a county agency consider others as possibilities to adopt such a child, the agency could be required to document the reasons why others are considered. An agency would be prohibited from using concern that such an adoption may remove this family from potential future foster care to others as a reason to deny this family the right to adopt.
