November is Adoption Awareness Month

By Governor Dave Heineman


Dear Fellow Nebraskans: As Governor, I’ve been able to make several worthy proclamations declaring certain months or days as special recognition for a number of worthwhile causes. They all affect Nebraskans and it’s a pleasure to meet those committed to improving the lives of our citizens. Each November there’s another special group that I would like everyone to keep in mind and consider helping - state wards who are available for adoption. While most Nebraskans are fortunate to grow up in loving and nurturing families, too many of these special youth enter foster care through no fault of their own. Unfortunately, the birth families of these children are unable or unwilling to provide them a safe environment, but this does not need to define their lives.
