Local congressman honors angels in adoption


Today, Congressman John Moolenaar, Republican of Midland, presented the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute’s (CCAI) Angels in Adoption award to Chad and Theresa Walters of Midland.

Chad and Theresa have adopted two children from foster care and Theresa also works as the Foster Care and Licensing Supervisor for the Gladwin County Department of Health and Human Services.

"Chad and Theresa are doing an outstanding job raising two young children and Theresa's work in Gladwin is a tremendous public service to our region. With their commitment and sacrifice Chad and Theresa are this year's Angels in Adoption," said Moolenaar.

The Angels in Adoption program is CCAI’s signature public awareness campaign and provides an opportunity for all members of the U.S. Congress to honor the work of their constituents who enrich the lives of foster children and orphans in the United States and abroad.

CCAI does not receive any government funding and it relies on the generous support of foundations, corporations, and individuals to accomplish its mission. For more information, visit www.ccainstitute.org and www.angelsinadoption.org.
