Wrong incentives put kids in foster care instead of families
On foster care: "They have taken some of these kids that the grandparents want to take care of and instead put them in foster care, because they get federal money," Folk said. "If there is a willing, able and competent grandparent that wants to
take care of those children, the families should get those kids first, and it is not happening because of that federal, twisted incentive that should not be there."
