If bought with the money the foster parents were given for the child’s care, then yes. If they were given as gifts to the child, then yes. Otherwise they can be but don’t have to be, as they wouldn’t necessarily belong to the child exclusively but were “loaned” to the child while they were there.
Some foster parents dip into their own savings to provide things for the children they take in. Some intend to take in more children other than the one(s) currently with them, or have taken in ones before. To make the money they personally spend stretch, then they consider some items they buy with their own money as hand-me-downs, which is something which is done in “regular” families. In instances such as those, then no malice is intended in not sending those specific items along with the child.
