Welcome! We’re glad you’re here. There are hundreds of children in Iowa in need of happy, permanent homes. The children you’re about to meet represent just a few of them. Many of the others are in the process of adoption with a family member or a current foster parent placement. LSI works with the Iowa Department of Human Services (DHS) to help raise awareness about Iowa children who are waiting to be adopted from foster care.
Each of the children featured here is legally eligible for adoption, and their DHS caseworker is actively seeking a permanent adoptive home. Families who are interested in adoption must be current licensed foster families (with an approved homestudy) or approved adoptive families.

Thank you to the Iowa photographers who have donated their time and talents to help these children find safe, loving homes.
