The ruling came despite a state law passed in February that will bar public access to foster-home details. However, that law doesn't take effect until May 14.Awesome!
PB and I are lucky enough to not have to worry about the ramifications of this decision. All of the bioparents we have worked with (past and present) seemed like OK people and we were never afraid for them to find out where we lived once we got to know them. We still have a listed phone number, in fact.
However, some people aren't that lucky. Some biological parents are (rightly or wrongly) very upset at the system and often displace that anger onto foster parents. Those people are now in danger.
Even if no danger is involved in the situation, the decision to disclose my address or not, ought to be mine and mine alone.
