The Span¡shD!ct dictionary says:

Foster-child = Hijo o hija de leche

My own big dictionary says:

Foster-child = Hijo o hija de acogida

See Heidita's reply. Change this reply to say "Niño o niña de acogida" not "hijo/a de acogida" - Moe, OCT 23, 2009

Foster-child = Hijo o hija de acogida

Niño de acogida, this is the word to use.

You would explain:

Tengo un niño que vive conmigo en régimen de acogida, no es un niño adoptado.

Many people confuse this with adopted child.

niño criado en otra familia

WordReference.com

Foster parent, es un padre o una madre de acogida. Foster Home, es una familia de acogida
