The Minnesota State Adoption Exchange (SAE) was established in the early '80s, funded by the Minnesota Department of Human Services, to help Minnesota children under state guardianship find adoptive families.

The children on this site require families that will nurture and support them. Many have fragile backgrounds that may include abuse or neglect. These children may be older, part of a minority group or a sibling group. Some may have one or more disabilities. Like all children, they will thrive in a family who accepts and cherishes them and helps them reach their full potential.
