Child Saving Institute and Adoption

Adoption is a journey full of different experiences and a decision that people come to for a variety of reasons. Some families want to adopt because they are unable to have children biologically. Others have been made aware of older child adoption and want to give a safe, loving home to a child who dreams of normalcy. Regardless of where you might be on your journey, Child Saving Institute wants you to have an opportunity to learn about adoption and become more informed about the child for whom you might be the best adoptive parent.

For more than 130 years, Child Saving Institute has played an active role in placing children for adoption. We are a leader in innovative national permanency practices, including open adoption, older child adoption, and post adoption support. Child Saving Institute’s adoption philosophies are based on the following beliefs:

  • We focus on the best interests of the child when finding a Forever Family for the child.
  • Every child has the right to a permanent, nurturing, and safe family.
  • The agency is legally, morally, and ethically responsible for trying to place children in homes where they will have the opportunity to develop healthy self-concepts and receive the physical and emotional nurturing they need to develop their full potential.

As you view this website of children available for adoption from the Omaha metro area, we hope to answer as many of your questions as possible about adoption and the children who wait for families. No matter where your adoption journey may take you, Child Saving Institute hopes to be a part of it, as a resource for information, education, and support.
