Fostering or Adopting a Teenager: Learn More with Let It Be Us
August 31 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join Let It Be Us virtually for our Learn More with Let It Be Us event series.
In our Foster Care 102 events, we dive deeper into foster care and learn about the waiting children and their needs. This specific event will focus on Fostering or Adopting a Teenager.
Our Learn More with Let It Be Us events are open to current and future foster & adoptive parents. During our 90-minute event, a Let It Be Us Foster Care Expert and a licensed foster parent discuss what happens after your become licensed, saying yes to a placement, initial days of placement, reunification or adoption, finding & building your tribe, how to navigate adoption through foster care, the trials, tribulations, challenges, love, and more. You will also learn about the role that Let It Be Us plays including how to join our Coaching and Targeted Recruitment programs.
Throughout the event, all prospective foster parents will have the opportunity to ask questions and get answers live. To ask a question prior to the event, please submit through our official Learn More with Let It Be Us Google Form.
