Abstract

A large number of children who must be placed in foster care are members of sibling groups—estimated between 56% and 85%. National studies disclose that up to 75% of children are separated from at least one of their siblings when placed in foster care, underlining the importance of the issue. While the lifelong value of sibling relationships is acknowledged, the practice field struggles with pragmatic placement issues. This edition of “Practice Notes” identifies Minnesota’s policy, provides some insights from existing studies and suggests recommendations.
