Like in-laws

Foster kids are like in-laws.


Instant family with all the conflicts that happen in any family and none of the history or shared understanding about how conflicts are supposed to be solved.


  1. Interesting take. I never thought of it that way but it makes sense.

  2. Our family worker used that analogy -- told us to imagine moving in with our inlaws and having to do everything as they want it done, without it being explained beforehand.
