Children, especially those in foster care, are inherently vulnerable to sexual abuse and exploitation. The particular vulnerability of foster children may stem from a variety of factors, including their dependence on others, sexual naïveté and immaturity, limited verbal skills, and damaged social status. In light of this vulnerability, the screening and application process for prospective foster parents is critical. When placing a child in the custody of a foster parent, courts and social service agencies must engage in a careful screening and review process, selecting a placement that is in the child’s best interest.
