What You Can Do For James …
You can be flexible when welcoming James into your home. You can remain patient with him as he adjusts to his new, permanent family. You can also help him maintain a relationship with his brothers. James would like to join a family that will love and support him. Other children in the home should be older than James.
An Illinois family is preferred.
For those who submit an Inquiry Form expressing an interest in adopting a child listed in the Heart Gallery of Illinois, your form is submitted to the Adoption Inquiry Unit of the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services. It is DCFS’s responsibility to get in touch with you as the next step if there is a match. Let It Be Us is not a licensing agency or a child placing agency. Our function in the adoption process is to recruit foster and adoptive parents for the Illinois children who are waiting.
The first step in adoption from foster care is to obtain a foster care license. Visit our licensing map to find a licensing agency or an Illinois DCFS licensing office near your home.
