Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman proclaims november as adoption awareness month.

Heineman is urging families to consider adopting children who are in the state's foster care system.

The Governor says more than 200 foster children have been adopted in 2012 but the state still needs willing families.

Thomas Pristow the Director of the state's Children and Family Services Division says youth who grow up in healthy families are less likely to face substance abuse problems or commit crimes.

Heineman issued the month at the Capitol with an adoptive family by his side.
