Adoption Excellence Awards 2007
Later this month, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will announce the names of organizations, families, and individuals who have been selected to receive Adoption Excellence Awards for 2007, recognizing the recipients' contributions to providing stable, permanent homes for our nation's children in foster care. These awards, presented annually since 1997, demonstrate the Department's national commitment to rebuild the lives of the 514,000 children in foster care and to achieve permanency for the 115,000 of those who are waiting for adoptive homes and families.
The awardees will be honored at a ceremony in Washington, DC. Nominations are reviewed and winners are chosen by a panel of recognized experts in the adoption field, including staff from Federal and State agencies. A complete list of the 2007 award recipients will be announced in an ACF press release and posted on the Children's Bureau website:
