Make sure each child or sibling group has a variety of
good photos. It is also extremely beneficial if each child
has a video and or audio having them describe some
of their favorite things and activities.
Prepare for questions that families might ask during
the webinar. Review the child's case files and identify
what the child needs in a forever family. It is also
important that workers share the strengths of the
children along with their struggles. If possible find the
contact information for others in the child's life such
as a CASA, mentor, or a foster parent who cares for
them. A Family For Every Child can coordinate with
these individuals to also participate in the webinar.

the child would be a good fit for their family.

homestudy directly after the webinar has ended. Please
be prepared to follow up with those families and discuss
with them if they are a good potential match for a child or
why they might not be the best fit for that child.
