sounds more like a plan to force parents to pay for the kidnapping of their children and relocation of their children with someone who will already received funding for their "foster care"...
Not sure I like where this one is headed.
"fostering" the care of a child for another parent should be done of the heart, by the heart - not the wallet...foster community by allowing parents to rely on one another for support - NOT by making the care of a child a "business transaction"
