(MADISON) – November is National Adoption Month and to honor those special Wisconsin Families who open their hearts and homes to provide “forever families” for children and youths, the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families (DCF) is seeking nominations for the 2017 Governor’s Outstanding Adoptive Parent Awards.
To recognize and thank adoptive parents for their efforts to improve the lives of children, DCF is requesting nominations for adoptive parents who go above and beyond, especially those who have adopted sibling groups, teenagers, children with special needs and/or foster care children to be recognized at this year’s awards ceremony.
Families will be invited to attend a recognition ceremony at the State Capitol on November 16th. To nominate a special adoptive family in your community, please visit https://dcf.wisconsin.gov/adoption-nomination/ and complete the nomination form online.
Nominations must be received by Saturday, October 7, 2017. Please email DCFMBCommunications@wisconsin.gov or call (608) 266-9000 for more information.
