    Starting in April 2020, in response to the even more urgent need for foster and adoptive parents due to the coronavirus pandemic, Children Awaiting Parents (CAP) has adjusted its upcoming parent training to offer “Deciding Together” (DT), a highly personalized, trauma-informed family preparation and selection program. These classes help prospective parents make an informed decision to pursue foster parenting or adoption. Families who sign up will be assigned to a trainer and WILL SCHEDULE MUTUALLY CONVENIENT TIMES VIA VIRTUAL CLASSES with their trainer. Classes are comprised of seven weekly 2-hour consultations to make a mutual decision about a family’s readiness to become a foster or adoptive family. Together, the trainer and the family will assess strengths and needs to foster, adopt, or both. Anyone with questions or interest in registering for this free training should email Veronica Black at veronica@capbook.org
