You may recognize Jen Lilley from her dozens of starring roles on the Hallmark Channel, or from her breakout performance in the Academy Award-winning film THE ARTIST, but just last year Jen's first daughter Julie was born, and she is also a mother to a newly adopted son as well as a foster son. Last month, she partnered with the foundation Project Orphans to establish a neighborhood in the US to give orphans and children in foster care safe and loving homes with a focus on permanency and adoption. Lilley also launched her new weekly podcast Fostering Hope, which aims to help normalize and support adoptive families of all types, foster ethical practices and champion for safe, loving families for the children who need them. She’s a celebrity ambassador for the child abuse and treatment organizations Childhelp, Project Orphans, ECPAT and The Dave Thomas Foundation.
