One morning at the Barrington Area Library – ONE week from today – could be life changing for your family and the future of a child. At a special Adoption Through the State of Illinois event on Saturday, April 11th, you’ll hear an unforgettable story about one couple’s adoption from foster care and the mission of Barrington’s new non-profit, Let It Be Us.

Founded by Barrington photographer and adoptive mother, Susan McConnell, Let It Be Us is a non-profit dedicated to building awareness and inspiring the care and adoption of children in the foster care system.  In Illinois alone, we’re talking about 3,300 babies through teenagers of all ethnicities currently awaiting homes they can permanently call their own.

Susan McConnell says adoption from foster care is free of charge and does not discriminate based on age, marital status, income or sexual orientation. Whether you want to be a parent or be a champion, she’s inviting us to come to this first event of its kind.

There will be a panel of speakers with a moderator, Susan Stoga, board member and partner with Carson Stoga Communications.

The panel includes:

1. An adoption recruiter from the State of Illinois.

2. An adoption recruiter from Lutheran Social Services.

3. A young couple who recently adopted a baby from foster care.

Let It Be Us will also be hosting the Illinois Heart Gallery, a photography exhibit of foster children available for adoption.

With 3,300 children within the foster care system who are available for adoption, Illinois ranks 3rd in the United States for the number of children aging out of the system.

Whether you’re interested in being a parent or a champion, the Adoption from Foster Care event will take place at the Barrington Area Library (505 N. Northwest Highway) from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 11th, 2015.  For more information, contact Susan McConnell at 847-528-2044 or  To RSVP today, visit
