You did not grow under my heart - you grew in it : A qualitative study about the motives of fosterparents (English)
Abstract [en]

This study was about the motives that foster parents had before they became foster parents, how the motives change over time and their overall thoughts about the motives. The study aimed to increase the understanding of foster parents described motives before the mission and in their present mission. This was done by analysing four autobiographies written by people who have previous experience with being a foster parent, in which they describe their own stories regarding their mission. The result was analysed through findings in previous studies, Self-Determination theory (SDT) and Cognitive-Evaluation theory (CET). The results of this study are that the motives of foster parents change during their mission depending on extrinsic rewards. The motives of foster parents have an underlying purpose. It is important for their continued motivation to experience feelings of competence and autonomy.
