We could see in our study that factors like if the child had behaviour problems and if the child was a teenager increased the possibility of break downs. Other factors that also increased the possibility of break downs were if the foster parents had children of there own as well as defaults in the organisation of social service. Factors that on the other hand reduced the possibility of break downs were if the child was placed with relatives and if the foster home was offered support. God relations between social services, the foster home, the child and the birth parents were important for a positive outcome. Especially the relation between the child and it´s birth parents was of special importance. The most common way to recruit new foster homes was through other already existing foster homes. (Less)
