We are moving to Peoria, IL soon. We want our kids to go to a public elementary school that isn't all white. We are looking at Charter Oak, Hines, Kellar, Northmoor Edison, Roosevelt Magnet, Woodrow Wilson, and Velenta Hinton. I have no idea how to narrow it down from there. Anyone know which schools are the best?
Any recommendations for a pediatrician that takes Medicaid and isn't trigger happy with antibiotics? I would prefer an African American doctor if possible, as my kids are African American.
We plan to be foster parents and hopefully adopt from foster care. Any advice on an agency to work with? Are the private foster agencies better to work with than DCFS? Is there a foster care or adoption support group?
I would appreciate any advice. I don't know anyone in Peoria and my oldest child will be entering school for the first time next Fall, so I have never had to figure out school stuff before.
