I admire your strength to take in any child who is not your own, especially one with such a difficult and sad back ground. Your foster child cannot be diagnosed as schizophrenic as he is too young for this label. Bearing in mind the addiction he was born with due to his mother's abuse of substance, the physiological problems together with the psychological troubles he is dealing with (a feeling of not belonging anywhere for one), you are obviously caring for a very troubled child who needs a variety of interventions. I recommend taking him to see a child psychologist, not necessarily one from the institution he came from; sometimes a fresh pair of eyes on a situation can help. I wonder if you have ever had any therapy to help you deal with this difficult situation? It is very trying and very tyring. I wish you all the best with your future journey with this child.
