Posted: Dec 07 2012 by ppowers

Iowa KidsNet, the statewide organization that recruits, trains, licenses and supports Iowa's foster and adoptive families, will hold an information session in Webster City on Thursday, December 13 for individuals interested in becoming foster or adoptive parents. Foster care is the temporary placement of children with families outside of their own home due to abuse, neglect or other family crisis situations. The goal is for loving families to provide children with a safe, stable and nurturing environment. There is no typical foster family-foster families can be single,married, homeowners or renters can come from all racial, ethnic and religious backgrounds. The information session gives attendees a basic overview of the process involved in foster care and adoption and an understanding of the characteristics of children in the child welfare system. There is no obligation to continue in the process by attending. There is a large need for more families to foster teens, children with special needs or behaviors and sibling groups. Iowa also has a need for more African American, Latino and Native American foster and adoptive parents. To inquire online and see future session dates, visit www.iowakidsnet.com. Registrants will receive an information packet to fill out before attending the session.  You can also call 1-800-243-0756 for more information on the time and location for the information session in Webster City on December 13.
