Iowa KidsNet, the statewide organization that recruits, trains, licenses and supports Iowa’s foster and adoptive families, will hold an information session in Waterloo on Friday, April 12, for individuals interested in becoming foster or adoptive parents.

This 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. While there is a great need for more families to foster teens, children with special needs or behaviors, and sibling groups, there is no obligation for those attending the meeting to continue the process of becoming a foster or adoptive parents.
