Free text This paper adresses the importance of the sibling bond in general and in foster care and adoptive placement in particular. It underlines that this bond is longer lasting and more influential than any other. Despite this, current estimates indicate that 75 percent of sibling groups end up living apart after they enter foster care. For most of them, it means losing the only significant relationship they have known.
