Exploring Foster Parenting and Adoption

Thursday June 4, 7pm

With over 13,000 children in the foster care system, the State of Michigan is always in need of more loving foster and adoptive families to help provide temporary or permanent care for children.  To help bring awareness to the needs of children in foster care, Erin Wright from Ennis Center for Children will present information for families, couples, and individuals who would like to learn more about the Child Welfare System in Michigan.  Topics will include an overview of the Foster Care and Adoption system, the foster home licensing/approval process, foster parent responsibilities, and the process of adopting a child from foster care.  A current foster parent will also be present to give a personal testimony and answer questions.
