The people who formed Let it Be Us have a lot in common.
They are talented experts in foster care, guardianship, adoption, recruiting, marketing, media, public relations, education, and fundraising. They are parents, foster parents, and adoptive parents. They are an advocacy group for the adoption of foster children because they believe that every child deserves to have permanent, committed parents who will love them throughout their lives.
While Let it Be Us works in Illinois, their work is a scalable model to follow.
