Equality Illinois is partnering with The Cradle to offer information about how to start the adoption process. Attend a forum on Tuesday, January 13, 2015 in Chicago’s Loop.

The forum will provide an overview of adoption law and answer legal and procedural questions about adoption in a safe and friendly environment. In addition, the new Equality Illinois adoption guide will be available, which includes an extensive list of recommended adoption agencies.
