For Minnesota families interested in fostering or adopting children from Minnesota foster care

This is the first step for all families planning to adopt from Minnesota foster care, regardless of the agency or county you plan to adopt through. This is also the first step for all families planning to become foster care providers through CH/LSS.

These classes will familiarize you with the children waiting to be adopted, the needs they commonly have, and the adoption process. You will also have the opportunity to listen to panels of adoptive parents and waiting or adopted teens. Topics covered include: overview of the child welfare system, impact of prenatal drug/alcohol exposure, grief, loss and separation, trauma, abuse and neglect, mental health needs, attachment, cross-cultural and transracial parenting, permanency needs of older youth, concurrent planning, experiences of foster parents, experiences of birth parents, visitation and maintaining connections.
