Sauer introduces members of nonprofit adoption organization
State Rep. Nick Sauer (R-Lake Barrington) called the House floor’s attention to some of his district's most distinguished residents on May 29.
“I would like the assembly to look up and recognize two very special people here from my district—Susan and Kristen are with an organization called Let it Be Us,” Sauer said.
The non-profit organization, which is at 145 W. Main St. in Barrington, helps join Illinois families with children in the foster care system.
“We had an event today in the rotunda to talk about foster care awareness and adoption,” Sauer said.
According to Let it Be Us' mission statement, the funds raised by the group “go to programs and projects that maximize the prospects of successful adoptions for these children.”
“I would like everyone to welcome them," Sauer said as the House floor gave the two women a warm round of applause. "They are changing lives and helping families adopt from foster care.”
