My niece was taken away from her mom and is now in foster care & I'm trying to get her. Does anyone know of what I all have to do for getting my foster care license as a family member in minnesota

I hope you are successful in your efforts to get custody of this child. Keep us posted!

Have you spoken directly to her caseworker? The sooner you can get her out of a foster home and into your home the better. Would there be any reason you would not be able to provide a stable living environment?

You don't need a license to care for family. Call Social services where your niece lives and tell them you want to care for her.

Your love and care for your niece is warranted, and you sound like a wonderful aunt! I just said a prayer for your situation. May God be with you during this time. Good luck and Hugs!

Best of luck. When she was taken, was any family considered? How old is she?

Fingers crossed that I don't have too. My house is ready for her. I have a single bed and dresser and toy box and clothing

That is something you need to discuss with Family Services or whatever they are called there in Minnesota. They know the laws and can help you better than an international website.
