The New Face of Adoption
There was a time when adoption was all about couples looking for a baby to complete their dream of a family. For a variety of reasons, there are far fewer infants available for adoption these days. The primary focus now is finding loving, nurturing families for older children legally available for adoption and awaiting a Forever Family.
Older child adoption isn’t always easy, but for the most part, neither is doing anything worthwhile—like parenting. Good parents put the child’s needs above their own desires. This is particularly true when it comes to realizing that the need of an older child to have a home is life-changing—for you as well as the child. Your willingness to make a difference will repair a hurt that might not have been fixed in any other way, or by any other person.
Adopting an older child from foster care
Children wind up in the foster care system most frequently because of abuse, neglect, and abandonment. Yet, the resiliency of children is extraordinary, and it is only through unconditional love and support that these children—like ALL children—are able to heal and succeed.
Adopting a child in foster care is not cause for concern—like all kids, children in foster care long for a normal life. They need love. They need families. They need YOU. Visit the Nebraska Heart Gallery to meet the children available for adoption >>
