Foster mom in Pa awaiting placement for 7 months. I am told there are over 3000 kids in the system. Why no placement yet?

It all depends on the situation. Are you foster only, or adopt only. That will decrease placements as they want to decrease the amount of moves a child has. What age group are you open to? Infant and toddler you will wait longer as that is what most people request. Race of child? Special needs of child? Sibling group? These are all things that may affect placement. They are also going to look at your situation and place a child they feel will do well in. Most of those 3000 kids are going to be your older, hard to place kids.
