Is this a good reason to be put in foster care? Will I even be able to? Where can I contact them?

I was already in foster care previously for a year and a half and I understand that Its serious. I see a lot of questions from teens that only want to go without thinking hard about it. I'm 15 about to be 16 in a couple months and I found out I'm

Answers:

Babe: you need to figure out what causes pregnancy. Seriously.

I believe it's going to be hard to find a foster family for a 15 year old who is going to have a baby... I wish you the best!

I'm an experienced foster parent and you would only be put in foster care if the state deemed there was a reason to.

As far as being pregnant and in foster care. After you give birth, there's actually no guarantee that you and the baby will be placed in the same home. All kids in foster care are separate cases so your case will be separate from the babies. The state would try to place you together but it's not a guarantee, it really comes down to availability of a home. Some foster parents only take teenagers and no babies and others only take small children. If you accept a placement of an infant, you have to be licensed for that age meaning you already have a crib and what is required to have a baby in the home for foster care (crib, car seats, etc).

If you're unable to provide for the baby and unable to provide a suitable home for him/her, it's also possible they would terminate your parental rights and place the baby for adoption.

There may be some group homes that would help you transition to being able to care for your self and the baby.

Be careful what you wish for.

No, this is not a reason to go to foster care. Foster care if for children who are in danger of being harmed or are being harmed in their homes.

You may, in fact, be separated from your baby when you give birth if you are in foster care if the foster parents are not willing to have an infant in their home.

Stay where you are and be thankful that your grandma is willing to house you and feed you.

The thing is, if you are placed in foster care without being abused, neglected or generally in an unsafe environment, that means there is one place less for a kid who actually IS in danger. Nobody will place you in foster care just because you want to.

Something you can look into instead is the option of moving to a maternity group home. There are different kinds of these group homes. Some funded by the government, some privately, usually by a religious group. They have different rules for who can live there, and have different goals.

For instance some focus on giving pregnant single women a place to stay until their child is adopted, while others function as a sort of halfway house, where pregnant teens get education about child care and other life skills they will need to live independently. Most are anti-abortion.

Just Google to see if there is a maternity group home that matches your need.
