Frequently Asked Questions

What is the replanted conference?

The Replanted Conference is a Christian conference designed for foster and adoptive parents, Safe Family parents, kinship providers, support systems, and professionals – basically anyone supporting or caring for children through adoption and foster care. 

The Replanted Conference is a national conference (available both in-person in Chicago and simulcasted to many other locations) and is designed to equip and inspire our attendees. We offer highly specialized training, amplify the voices of adult adoptees and foster alumni, and seek to support parents like you on your post-placement journey.

Is training credit (Continuing Education) available to foster parents?

Yes! Training certificates will be made available whether you attend in person in Chicago or attend a simulcast site. You will be given a training certificate that will be found at the back of your program guide. It will be the registrant’s responsibility to complete the training certificate with the sessions you attended and submit that paperwork to your licensing worker for approval. 

Unfortunately, we are not able to guarantee that each state or licensing agency will grant training credit. We recommend that you submit the sessions you are interested in attending to your licensing worker for pre-approval. Illinois is pre-approved.

There are 15.5 total training hours available:

  • Thursday, October 24th Pre-Conference: 5.5 hours
  • Friday October 25th: 6.25 hours
  • Saturday October 26th: 3.75 hours

What if we haven’t adopted/foster yet?

You are welcome to attend! We believe it’s important to surround yourself with support, information, and others who get it at the beginning of your journey. However, this conference is not a recruiting event. Rather, the Replanted Conference is about equipping parents to care for children impacted by adoption or foster care. You are welcome here!

Are CEs available for professionals?

Additional CEUs will not be available for professionals this year. However, foster parent educational credits are available for attendees.

Is there a couple’s discount?

Unfortunately, no. Pricing is based per person.
