Sounds like the State of California has determined that the parents of the child are unable to care for him. So the State is responsible for his well being. He was placed with pre-screened foster care givers. Your daughter is claiming to be related, and claims to have some priority for long term placement. The State needs to be sure she meets the criteria, so as not to deliver the child to someone not entitled. Sounds like things are moving along properly. Your daughter should go get "certified" so placement can be made.
