Lutheran Family Services of Nebraska offers adoption and home study services to individuals and couples in Nebraska. Education about adoption issues and preparation for parenting adopted children are fundamental to all adoption opportunities at Lutheran Family Services of Nebraska.

Available Services:

  • Infant Adoption

  • Identified Adoption - For birth parents and adoptive families who have established an agreement for placement independently of Lutheran Family Services of Nebraska In such instances, we facilitate the relinquishment and placement of the child. We also provide requested counseling to the birth parents and the adoptive family.

  • Contractual Homestudies - Under Nebraska law, licensed child-placing agencies must complete a home study of prospective adoptive homes prior to a child's placement. Homestudies are available to families pursuing adoption independently of Lutheran Family Services of Nebraska.

  • International Adoption

  • Homestudies for International Adoption - We provide the required homestudy report as well as post-placement supervision for families working with an international adoption agency.

  • Foster Care Adoption - Lutheran Family Services is Nebraska’s sole grantee of the Wendy’s Wonderful Kids program, a signature program of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption awards grants to public and private adoption agencies to hire adoption professionals who implement proactive, child-focused recruitment programs targeted exclusively on moving America’s longest-waiting children from foster care into adoptive families. As their sole Nebraska grantee, LFS diligently finds permanent adoptive homes for children who are legally free for adoption. We also complete the adoptive home study.
