Event description

Description

Learn about the children available for adoption through foster care in Illinois. These town hall style events feature adoption recruiters from agencies throughout Illinois as well as keynote speakers such as the Director of Illinois DCFS, the Medical Director of DCFS, and other knowledgeable experts in the adoption from foster care field. We put the adoption recruiters at the front of the room and we invite potential parents to fill the audience and the work begins. Whether you have your foster care license, which is the first step in adopting from foster care, or not, this is a great way to learn how to start or continue your journey in adoption from foster care. Each of these recruitment events host adoption recruiters from at least 4 different agencies.

We encourage parents to attend as many of these events as possible. The keynote speakers are heroes in the world of adoption from foster care and the information they have for our audience is invaluable. It’s also a great way to review four or more agencies at once to get an idea about which agency might be best fit for you and your family.

Questions about the event may be directed to Susan McConnell, Founder and Director of Let It Be Us, at SusanMcConnell@LetItBeUs.org.

The media is welcome and inquires are directed to Susan Stoga, Let It Be Us Board Member and Partner of Carson Stoga Communications, at Susan@CarsonStoga.com.

Adoption from foster care is free and does not discriminate against age, income, marital status, gender or sexual orientation. Let It Be Us is a registered 501(c)(3) with the mission of adoption and education of children in Illinois foster care. Learn more at www.LetItBeUs.org.

These events are brought to you in part through a grant from the Chicago law firm Howard & Howard.
