At Let It Be Us, our mission is to inspire foster care and adoption in Illinois. Our following is comprised of foster and adoptive parents, and we have personally and professionally seen a multitude of families formed by adoption from foster care. In Illinois, we rank very low at achieving adoption for our waiting children, and this hits at the core of our mission. We have designed multiple programs that help our children in need of foster and adoptive parents. Through the month of November, which is National Adoption Awareness Month, you’ll see us blanket social media as well as the Chicago airwaves as we recruit new parents and help already licensed parents discover new parenting opportunities.

Inspiring Foster Care & Adoption Forum with State Representative Allen Skillicorn at Judson University, Elgin, Illinois on Saturday, November 16, 10:00am (register early as seating is limited)
Join us for an informative round table discussion regarding finding homes for Illinois children through foster care and adoption. All are welcome to hear our panel of experts. Space is limited so please register early. In McHenry County alone 40% of children in foster care are placed in safe and loving homes outside of McHenry County. McHenry County simply does not have enough licensed homes. Thank you to State Representative Allen Skillicorn of Crystal Lake, Illinois and McHenry County, Illinois for bringing attention to this issue. “It is a privilege to host such an important forum for inspiring foster care and adoption in Illinois. Unfortunately, our state ranks at the bottom in finding permanent homes for waiting children. It is especially critical to avert the terrible tragedies we have seen in our area.” State Representative Allen Skillicorn. Register here.
