I inquired about a child months ago and they are still on the website. If they need a family, why was I not selected?

Selecting a family for a child is a tough decision. Permanency teams make certain that a family will be able to meet all of the child's needs which can be extensive depending on their history and current situation. If a family does not meet certain aspects of what the team is looking for, they will not move forward with a family no matter how long the child has been waiting. If a child is placed with a family that is not the best fit, it will only end in further hurt and rejection for the child, AND for the family involved.
