To get this information we interviewed six biological children to foster parents, two foster parents and two social workers. During our work with this essay we tried to have a child perspective and in one chapter we developed this concept and we also tried to find out in witch way this perspective is expressed in the law. In our analysis we wanted to tie the empirical material together with the child perspective, former research on this area and a theory called developmental ecology. Our thoughts on the result are that the support and information given to the biological children are rather good, but there is a lot more to wish for. Above all that the biological children in a more systematic way get involved in the foster care. (Less)
