McHenry area presentation planned for prospective adoptive and foster parents

December 9, 2018 by  

According to statistics, there are nearly 18,000 children in foster care in Illinois. During a McHenry presentation, the public will be given an opportunity to learn how they can open their heart and home to a boy or girl who is in need of a permanent, loving family to call their own.

The information session will be organized in a town hall style, and it will include remarks from agencies in the McHenry area that license foster care homes. It was noted that obtaining this document is one of the first steps in the adoption process in the state.

Everyone, no matter their income, marital status, sexual orientation or gender is welcome to sit in on the discussion, and it will give them a chance to see if fostering or adoption is a good fit for them. They can ask questions and gather information, and they can also network with others who are also considering opening their home to a child in need.

This session is being offered at no cost, and it is set to be held in The Church of Holy Apostles. Adopting and fostering a child can be an important decision, and information packages that include pamphlets from a brochure printing company can make it simple for the organizers of an event like this to distribute materials to those who attend.

Anyone who is interested in attending this workshop, which will be held on January 19, is asked to RSVP ahead of time. It will begin at 10:00 am sharp.
