    Information Meeting Schedule

    Dear Prospective Foster/Adoptive Parent:

    Thank you for your interest in fostering/adopting a child through Montgomery County Job & Family Services, Children Services Division. The enclosed information has been prepared to answer some of the commonly asked questions about the program(s) you have indicated interest in.

    We regularly hold informational meetings for people who have expressed interest in becoming foster and/or adoptive parents. The information provided at these meetings includes an overview of the agency's services and programs, a review of the foster care and adoption assessment process, and a discussion of our need for foster and adoptive homes.

    We discuss the "blended homestudy" option, our expectations of foster and adoptive parents, and your role as a prospective foster or adoptive parent. There is also an opportunity to get acquainted with our children who are currently available for adoption, through pictures and descriptions.

    We encourage you to attend a Foster Care/Adoption Informational Meeting at your earliest convenience. If after attending the meeting you would like to initiate the process to become licensed as a foster care/adoptive parent, you are welcome to attend Session #1 of the required 36-hour foster care/adoption training program which takes place immediately following the informational meeting.

    A schedule for 2014 is outlined below. The meetings are informal, so please feel free to come and ask questions.

    Again thank you for your interest.

    Sincerely,

    Dale Richardson

    Montgomery County Department of Job & Family Services
