Overall, the court is less interested in which parent might have the most right to the children than in how best to help the children thrive. It is on the verge of deciding a landmark case that could have a profound impact on the more than 400,000 vulnerable children who find themselves in the U.S. foster care system. It is no small feat to find enough potential foster parents and to give them enough support while a child is in their home. Fulton has fostered 40 children; Simms-Bush was a social worker in the Philadelphia foster care system before fostering and adopting children. Civil liberties groups point to the high number of foster children who also identify as LBGTQ, and argue that they need supportive homes.
