This article reports on changes in legislation on foster family care in the Arab Republic of Egypt, specifically the replacement and/or addition of terms to the Egyptian Ministry Decree (17) 1968 and Egyptian Child Law No. 12 of 1996. The replacement of terms refers to Terms 4 and 10 in Article 87 of the Egyptian Child Law No. 12 of 1996. Term 4 addresses the numbers of biological siblings and foster children permitted in a foster family. Term 10 relates to how contact should be managed between a foster child and its biological family. The terms added are Terms D and H in Article 83 and Terms 10 and 12 in Article 87 of the Egyptian Child Law No. 12 of 1996. Terms D and H focus on the objectives of the foster family care system. Terms 10 and 12 address the process of reuniting a foster child with its biological family and the issue of retaining a foster child’s original parentage.
