Long-Term Foster Care: Historically, this term has been used to refer to the intentional retention of a child in foster care for an extended period of time. In cases of children who were considered to be unadoptable, this could have been the only long-term plan for the child. There is now a growing trend for state child welfare systems to no longer view long-term foster care as an acceptable placement alternative for any child. The acceptability of this growing philosophy has been strengthened by the passage of the Adoption and Safe Families Act of 1997 (Public Law 105-89). SEC. 203.
