This study reports on a survey in which 61 foster parents were asked their opinions as to what constitutes a successful foster placement. Results were analyzed using multidimensional scaling and cluster analysis, showing six themes: security of the foster child, family connections, good relationships, positive family change, seamless involvement on the part of the child welfare agency, and growth on the part of the child.
