👎Myth: All children in foster care have some kind of physical, mental or emotional handicap; that’s why they are classified as “special needs.”

👍Truth: Not all children in foster care have special needs.

The term “special needs” is somewhat misleading, because it can mean that the child is older, a minority or requires placement with his/her siblings. While some children are dealing with physical or emotional concerns, they need the nurturing support only a permanent family can provide. Many children in foster care are in the “system” because their birth parents weren’t protective and nurturing caretakers— not because the children did anything wrong or because there is something wrong with them.
