I'd like to find out more about bringing Andrew into our family.

In the fall of 2005, Child Saving Institute created the Nebraska Heart Gallery to showcase older children available for adoption in the Omaha area. Child Saving Institute’s mission has always been “Responding to the cry of a child” and with your help, we continue to respond to the needs of older children and youth awaiting a safe, nurturing Forever Family.

Andrew loves to play basketball and wishes to get involved in high school sports at some point soon. Andrew has shared his dreams of going to college some day, with the desire to major in Engineering. He is funny and expressive. Andrew gets along with his peers but can become more expressive with his emotions, which can sometimes challenge him to re-build relationships with peers as well as with adults.

He likes to be treated fairly and thrives when his needs are met in his home. Andrew would do very well in a home with supportive adults who encourage him and support him in outside activities. He wants to be a part of a family that engage in activities together, as a family. He would do very well in a home that is patient and understanding of his needs. Andrew needs stability and affirmation from any family who opens their home to him. He has such potential and has amazing life goals he wishes to achieve with his forever family. He wants a family that believes in him, and will help him achieve his goals, short term as well as long term.

Connections:

Andrew has a cousin in Lincoln that he remains in contact with periodically. Andrew really advocates for wanting to stay close to his friends in Lincoln. Andrew also has a sister that he'd like to maintain contact with.
