Abstract

The idea of family homes (FH) was that to create an alternative to orphanages. FH are now seen as a solution to the care problems of children whose parents are unable, unwilling, or judged by the legal system as unfit to care for them. Their aim is to help children regain hope and faith in life. Ideally, FH should help children rebuild a healthy relationship with their biological families or, when not possible, they should make the process of adoption as smooth as possible. FH should be a place of transit, a kind of “parking” of foster care temporarily on hold.
