Children and teens from birth through age 18 come into foster care. As the foster parent, you set the parameters of what age children you're willing to accept in your home. Some states and agencies will really respect those boundaries and only call you for kids that fit your parameters, and other states and agencies will call you with any ages and it's up to you to turn down placements that are outside your preferred age range. Generally, the wider your acceptable age range, the more quickly you'll receive a placement.
