The Foster/Surrogate Parent, other than one for a child who is a ward of the state, signs everything that a parent would normally sign.
Annually, DHS obtains DCFS Guardian signature on all forms that must be co-signed by the DCFS Guardian. DHS then provides copies of these forms to CFCs for use with all DCFS wards. DCFS Guardian signed forms must be renewed annually in the child's file.
