Let’s Talk – Adoption Matching 101: A County’s Perspective

Play

Learn from Becker County social workers about how they search for the best match for youth in their care.  We will talk about how they review home studies, what happens at collateral meetings, how they prepare to tell a youth about a potential family, along with advice for families who are in the matching process.

Together, our guests have 14-years of experience working at Becker County Human Services.
