No. Foster parents do not have legal authority to give permission for a minor to marry, move from the residence, drop out of school, and so forth. Foster parents and foster children are under the direct supervision of the court, therefore such decisions can be made only by the court based on the best interest of the minor child.

Is it illegal to adopt a child without the parents consent?

It is not illegal in certain cases to adopt a child without parent's consent. Being adopted at an older age, my parents had no consent who my adoptive parents were. My biological parents rights were terminated from the state because they were not deemed fit to be parents and I was in the foster care system. Being an unfit parent means neglecting and or abusing their child(ren). Social Services comes to take the child away and places them in foster care. If a child ends up in the foster care system and become eligible to be adopted, it is ultimately up the the foster parents if they want to adopt the foster child. In my case being an older foster kid, I was also able to have a say in my adoption. Biological parents have no say if the child is in the foster care system.
