Como se dice "foster mother" en Espanol?

My Cuban friend said foster mother is "madre adoptiva" but I know I've seen something else.

Anyone know? Thanks!

Definición foster mother

I understand is "madre de crianza temporera"
Entiendo es madre de crianza temporera.
Madre adoptiva is adoptive mom and I think it is when is forever.

Me again "foster mother"

Remember that here in US there's a lot of Spanish teachers who's Spanish is not there tongue/native language and doesn't know some specific words of the language.

My native tongue is Spanish and my second language is English.

I'm sure of the meaning that I gave you.

Just saw an episode of Adoption Story from Guatemala a lot of footage of the foster mother, sounded like she referred to herself as madre temporal.

I noticed one of the original Spanish documents from our agency referred to her as "la madre substituta."

I have a feeling there are many "acceptable" translations.

That's the way all of my attorneys refer to their foster mothers.
