Northwest Iowa — A report from the Iowa Department of Human Services shows there are nearly 800 children in the state who are eligible for adoption and November is National Adoption Month. Bambi Schroeder, of Iowa KidsNet, says more foster parents are urgently needed as more and more children are in need of temporary homes.
To become a licensed foster care provider, parents need to complete a 30-hour training course. It runs ten weeks with each session meeting for three hours.
Adoption Day events were held this past weekend in several Iowa cities, with more adoption events scheduled in the coming days. Learn more at: www.iowakidsnet.com
