Virtual Fireside Chat on Illinois Foster Care and Adoption – Recruiting Foster and Adoptive Parents

April 14 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

foster care adoption Illinois

Join our Let It Be Us Webinar featured on ZOOM where we will be virtually sharing all of our information on Illinois foster care and adoption.  Just like our in-person events, you will be able to speak with our foster care and adoption experts and get all of your questions answered.

We will be covering:

1. What is the difference between specialized and traditional foster care.
2. What are the ways to foster?  Long term vs. short term.
3. What does “the child’s goal” mean?  How is that determined?  By whom?  What role does the foster parent play?
4. Why do kids in care go to lots of different homes?  Why do some end up in group homes?
5. What do most kids need from a foster parent?
6. How do you actually adopt from foster care?

Open to future foster and adoptive parents and current foster and adoptive parents. We’ll be discussing how to obtain a foster care license, what it means to be a foster parent, how to navigate adoption through foster care, the trials, tribulations, challenges, love and more. Each of our recruitment events are led by our expert recruitment team.  This event is a webinar, a digital event, and you can attend from the comfort of your own home or your own phone. 

Seating is limited so please register early and please cancel your reservation if you cannot attend – so that others may attend. We expect this event to reach capacity.
