Foster care is designed to be a temporary respite for a child, yet in our society, it often turns into a lifestyle and the world where a child grows up.  When a child is abused or neglected he or she often can never return home.  (In Illinois there are 18,000 children in foster care and 54% never return home.) Harsh sentencing laws for nonviolent crimes also add abandonment to the equation.  Due to the temporary nature of foster care, it’s not unusual for a child to rotate through more than 20 homes in his or her childhood. 

Let it Be Us is a nonprofit dedicated to the adoption and education of children within the Illinois foster care system. Let it Be Us envisions a future in which our most vulnerable children have the opportunities and resources they need which can best be met by belonging in a family.

Every moment a child waits in foster care, the less likely he or she is to be adopted.

On Saturday, May 4th from 10am -12pm there is an informational meeting for those interested in being a solution to this problem.
