Young adults experiences of their parents foster care mission (English)
Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte var att få bidra med en ökad kunskap om och förståelse för hur nu unga vuxna, biologiska barn, upplever att ha föräldrar som har haft familjehemsuppdrag och vilken betydelse det haft för dem. Syftet var också att undersöka om dessa barn haft behov av stöd samt vilket stöd de fått. I studien genomfördes fem kvalitativa intervjuer med unga vuxna som har vuxit upp med föräldrar som haft familjehemsuppdrag. Studiens resultat analyserades med Schultz Jørgensens familjeplansteori. Resultat och tolkningar visade att biologiska barn upplever sig delaktiga i familjehemsuppdraget och beskriver relationen till sina fostersyskon som syskon och vän. Biologiska barn beskriver att de hade lättare att skapa relationer till de yngre fostersyskonen än till de som är tonåringar eller jämngamla. Resultatet visade att informanterna upplever fler fördelar än nackdelar med att ha fostersyskon. De biologiska barnen beskriver också att de kände att de saknade möjligheten till stöd från socialtjänsten.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study was to help create a greater knowledge and understanding for now young adult biological children's experiences of having had parents being foster care parents and the meaning of it. The purpose was also to examine if these children had need of and what kind of aid they got. This study was based of five qualitative interviews with now young adults that’s been growing up with parents that were foster parents. The result in the study was analysed with Schultz Jørgensens familyplanetheory. Results and interpretations showed that biological children experience a participation in the foster care process and describes the relation to the foster children as that of a sibling and friend. Biological children describe that they have an easier time creating relations to younger foster siblings than to teenagers and children in the same age. The results showed that the informants experience more positive feelings than negative feelings with having foster siblings. The biological children also describe that they felt a loss of opportunities of aid from the social services.
