    Hi there,

    Thanks for reaching out and sharing about your situation. It is hard to say since we don’t have a lot of information about the foster care system, but for the most legal route, it would be good to reach out to your casework and see how your mother could “prove” that she is capable of caring for you and see if there is a plan that could be created for a transition out of foster care to the care of your mom.
