16,000+ Children in Illinois are Patiently Waiting
Through the Let It Be Us Finding Forever Families Program, we offer events featuring panels of adoption recruiters, case managers, experienced foster and adoptive parents, as well as medical and child psychiatric experts. The goal of these events is to recruit foster parents and adoptive parents for the waiting children in Illinois.
At this town hall style event, there is time allowed for questions and answers. Let It Be Us offers this event six times during the calendar year.
Whether you have a foster care license or not, this is a great place or start or continue your foster care and adoption journey.
Becoming a foster parent and/or adoption from foster care does not discriminate against race, religion, income, marital status or sexual orientation. And becoming a foster parent and/or adopting from foster care is free of charge.
This free event is open to the public. Children and families are welcome. There is a craft table for children, complete with healthy snacks. After the event everyone may join us for hors d'oeuvres and coffee. The panel, as well as members from Let It Be Us, will be available to speak with you in a casual atmosphere.
To see a current listing of some of the children available for adoption, visit the Illinois Center for Adoption and Permanency.
Finding Forever Families is the first-of-its-kind program designed by Let It Be Us, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with the mission of adoption of children in Illinois foster care. To learn more visit Let It Be Us.
