Can resource parents choose the children they will care for?
Resource parents can generally choose a specific age range or gender, and have input on other factors. However, limiting the type of children you will care for may mean a longer wait for a foster child to be placed in your home. Resource parents may choose to not accept a placement if they feel it would not benefit the child.
