The primary goal of foster care is reunification with the biological family and most foster children will eventually return to their biological parents. However, in some cases, reunification is not possible and there is an ongoing need for forever homes for children in foster care, especially teens.
Please visit The Nebraska Heart Gallery to see some of the children needing permanent homes. Please note: you must first become licensed to foster before adopting any children from this list!

Please visit www.adoptUSKids.org for more general information on adoption.
The Collaboration to AdoptUSKids is a project of The Children’s Bureau, part of the Federal Department of Health and Human Services. It is a national adoptive family recruitment and retention strategy to encourage and enhance adoptive family support organizations and conduct a variety of adoption research projects.
Additionally, Adoption.com is a website that offers a photo-listing of children awaiting adoption, valuable resources, and information.
Our staff includes Resource Family Consultants who specialize in one-on-one relationships, which provide foster parents with emotional encouragement, skill reinforcement, and parenting strategies unique to providing out-of-home care.
The Nebraska Foster & Adoptive Parent Association (NFAPA) offers scholarships to adoptive, foster, guardianship or kinship youth who wish to further their education beyond high school or GED.
There is an ongoing need in Nebraska for families willing to share their hearts and their homes with children who require temporary foster care. There is also a need for “forever” families for our waiting children, especially teens, who are available for adoption.
