HOLLAND, Mich, — A West Michigan family is being honored for their willingness to make a difference in the lives of children living without caregivers.  Senator Gary Peters recognized Sara Blomeling-DeRoo and Jaime DeRoo in Wahington DC this month; the couple helping to raise 13 children over the years.

From the 'Angels in Adoption' webpage:

"The Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute’s (CCAI) Angels in Adoption® Program honors a wide spectrum of individuals and organizations making extraordinary contributions in adoption, permanency and child welfare. Each year, the Angels in Adoption® awardees travel to Washington, D.C., to both celebrate their hard work and dedication to the issues and participate in special events designed to engage them in using their personal experience to effect change on behalf of children in need of families. CCAI also honors a select number of National Angels in Adoption® whose contributions have had a national impact."
