dc.description.abstractThis research aims to identify how foster parents feel supported in their role. Much of the research previously conducted in this area shows that many foster parents feel they do not have any support, all the while being asked to go above and beyond for the child in their care. Previous research also shows that foster parents feel isolated when it comes to decision making regarding the child in their care and often feel like they are babysitters, despite caring for a child for several years. This research aims to make prominent how foster parents feel they have not had the support and will look for emerging themes within each participant’s experiences, creating a detailed account of why foster parents feel unsupported.
