Take a break and check out this week’s #ThrowbackThursday!
These ten children take a break from playing on the playground on the property of the Nebraska Children’s Home Society.
This 3″ x 4 3/4″ black and white photograph is provided and owned by the Nebraska Children’s Home Society. Chartered in September of 1893, the founders had a vision for a better future and believed that every child deserved a family. The agency has never charged fees for adoption services, and still today relies primarily on private donations to fund its services.
