Do kids in care ever go back to their parents?

Children in care

In most cases, children are only meant to live in care as a temporary measure.

Over half of all kids in care end up returning home in less a year.

Although for some staying in care is the best option. Only about one in 25 children stay in care for 10 years or more.
