Join our Let It Be Us Holiday Fireside Chat Series of discussions and learning opportunities regarding foster care and adoption in Illinois held at the Let It Be Us Headquarters inside of Barrington’s White House, 145 West Main Street, Barrington, Illinois 60010. Register for this limited seating event here.
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 Fireside Chat Series event will be led by Susan McConnell, foster care and adoption expert and adoptive parent. Each event will be joined by other foster care and adoption experts. These events will be held at Barrington’s White House, Barrington, Illinois, in the Fireplace Room.
These events are brought to you through a grant from the Barrington Area Community Foundation. Seating is limited so please register early and please cancel your reservation if you cannot attend – so that others may attend. These events always reach capacity.
Whether it’s brand new babies without families to care for them being released from the hospital, toddlers who have never seen stability, grade schoolers who have missed more school than they have attended, or teens who have bounced from group home to group home – we recruit foster and adoptive parents for our children in emergent need and those who are challenging to place, we coach those parents through licensure, then work with caseworkers to fill those newly licensed homes – ensuring faster and more thoughtful placements – giving our children what they need the most – safe and loving homes – and giving caseworker’s better options than having our children spend nights on their office floors or in shelters. (Note that Let It Be Us is not a licensing agency and is not a child placing agency. We work with caseworkers from DCFS as well as all partner agencies.)
