KING 5... Part II Of Foster Parents With 4 Year-Old

My guess is that KING 5 is obligated to balance their coverage to now show foster parents. There are many many great foster parents. The people in this story are, no doubt, good people. But why are the foster parents referring to themselves to the little four-year-old as "mommy and daddy"? They are caregivers, not the parents. Those terms, sans adoption, must be reserved for the parents.

Our state organization of foster parents have the same complaints that the families have. They are jerked around, lied to, and endure CPS decisions that hurt, not help, children and families.
