I did the same when my MIL passed away, after 6 months in a foster care situation. Just think of why you feel moved to thank them. What did they do that you appreciate enough to send them a card? Just write that out. They have a demanding, sometimes thankless job, so I know they will appreciate the gesture, whatever you say.

In the case of my MIL, I thanked them the warm, kind environment they provided. I thanked them for always treating my MIL with dignity. And, finally, I told them that, if my MIL had not come there to live I don't think she would have lived as long as she did. Even though she was only there for 6 months, those 6 months made a difference in her life and in ours, due to the peace of mind it gave us to know she was in good hands when we weren't there.

Do send the thank you, even if there's not much to say. They will appreciate it, I'm sure.
