​​​​​​​November is National Adoption Month.

When a child cannot be reunited with their ​family, adoption can become the goal. So many Nebraska children need homes. Can you help? DHHS Children and Family Services Director Stephanie Beasley and Deputy Director Dr. Alger Studstill explain how you can adopt a child in this public service announcement. We hope you will consider adoption. ​

If you and your family would like to learn more about adopting a child, please call 1-800-7PARENT (1-800-772-7368). 

To discuss other adoption issues or questions, you may contact the DHHS adoption specialist at (402) 219-1952.
