The children’s level of contact with their biological families varies greatly from case to case. In some cases, parental rights may already be terminated, resulting in no contact. In other cases, there may be phone calls and supervised visits, or children may be weekends at home with their families unsupervised.
It is important to understand that when the child’s goal is to be reunified with their biological parents, foster parents need to be open to having some contact with the birth families. You may be called on to supervise visits or phone calls, but you are not required to have the birth parents know your address or phone number. In general, it is best for the child if the foster parents and birth parents can establish a positive relationship.
