Foster care: Recent legislation helps states focus on finding permanent homes for children, but long-standing barriers remain. (GAO-02-585). Washington, D.C.: Author. http://www.gao.gov/new.items/d03626t.pdf Sandra Bishop-Josef Yale Zigler Center Quoting Trudy Festinger : [Hide Quoted Text] Does anyone know how much the ASFA exceptions have been used by agencies/states instead of filing termination proceedings when a child has been in foster care for 15 out of the most recent 22 months? Is anyone collecting data on that? Sincerely, Trudy Festinger New York University Sandra J.
