I, also looked for my father in orphanages in Richmond. I may have an answer for you. I did find my father. I looked for him and his 4 sisters in the 1910 and 1920 census. I found a sister at, The Children's Home Society of Richmond, Va 13 years after leaving home. My father came from Pulaski, Va, a Baptist preacher had written to the Children's Home about the family. By court order they were taken from Pulaski to Richmond by train. Children came from all over the state by recomendations of preachers to Richmond. The Home kept the kids for about 2 weeks, then sent them to families within the state. The Home is still open, you can call and they will tell you if your family member was there. You saying your father was a foster child sounds like he was probably there. Mine was there in 1907.
