Heitkamp Seeks Nominees for Angels in Adoption

Deadline for Submissions is August 23

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Heidi Heitkamp is seeking nominations of North Dakotans who are improving the lives of foster and adopted children. Heitkamp will select one individual, couple or organization to be named this year’s Angel in Adoption. Nominations will be accepted until August 23, 2013 at www.Heitkamp.Senate.Gov and the Angel will be honored in Washington, DC on October 9, 2013. If you need assistance in the nominating process, call Heitkamp’s office at 1-800-223-4457.

“Adoption is a blessing that enriches the lives of children and the families who welcome them into their homes,” said Heitkamp. “In North Dakota, we understand the importance of giving back, and there are so many families who have welcomed adopted and foster children into their homes. Too often, such selfless acts go unrecognized, but the Angels in Adoption program aims to change that.  I look forward to learning more about all of the amazing North Dakotans who are nominated for this honor.”

Each year the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute holds an Angels in Adoption Gala in Washington to highlight people doing extraordinary things for children in need. An Angel can be adoptive parents, foster parents, a social worker, attorney, an adoptee, physician, nurse, teacher, mentor, or child advocate that you believe has made a difference in the lives of children through adoption, foster care or child welfare advocacy.

Since 1999, nearly 2,000 Angels have received the honor. For more information on Angels in Adoption, click here.
