Frequently Asked Questions

Are CEs available for professionals?

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer professional CEUs at our event this year. Professionals who are interested in obtaining CEUs are welcome to submit the content to their licensing board for possible approval.

What if we haven’t adopted/foster yet?

For you overachievers, 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!

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

Yes! Training certificates will be made available whether you attend in person in Chicago, attend a simulcast site, or watch from your home. 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.

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 virtually) and is designed to refresh, equip, and inspire our attendees.
