Adoption search is the process by which parties to an adoption attempt to locate and make contact with each other.

Lutheran Family Services of Nebraska (LFS) provides adoption search services to all members of the adoption triad who received initial placement services from LFS, Adoption Links Worldwide and Tabitha Home in compliance with applicable Nebraska, Iowa or Kansas laws. Non-identifying social background information, medical histories and birth information will be provided upon written request. LFS strongly suggests adoptees obtain non-identifying background information prior to initiating an adoption search. LFS respects your confidentiality and right to privacy.

If you are considering or are involved in an adoption search, counseling services are available upon request.

To start your own search, please complete this brief form.
