Add to Michelle's comment just in general, You would need a lawyer to go over the laws where you live and to see if you would have a chance to do so. Usually the court decides who fosters the child or the protective agency does with the courts. A lot of times they will look to very close family members to take the child so the child does not land in a strange place like with grandparents of either side, father, sometimes aunts or uncles. But this is just a guess at best.

You would need to contact the government agency that deals with fostering and ask them.
Being an international site we don't know what the rules/laws are where you live.
