This historical analysis reviews and analyzes the establishment of the foster care system, with the hopes that it can provide insight and understanding to the modern foster care system. This study expands to take a special look at the long-term affects that a stay in foster care has on children. This study also examines the challenges that arose throughout the development and the laws that were passed to advance the child welfare practices. An emphasis is placed on the changes, or lack thereof, of policies, practices, and worker effectiveness. The results of this study reveal that although the foster care system has progressed as a whole, there are several aspects of it that continue to need improvement.
