Request for Nominations of Outstanding Adoptive Parents

National Adoption Month is coming up in November. In recognition of those who go above and beyond to open their hearts and homes and provide “forever families” for youths, the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families (DCF) will present the 2014 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 about adoptive parents who go above and beyond, especially those who have adopted sibling groups, teenagers, children with special needs and/or foster care children.

Families will be invited to attend a recognition ceremony at the State Capitol on November 18th. To nominate outstanding adoptive parents, please visit and complete the nomination form online.

Nominations must be received by 4:30 p.m. on Friday, October 10, 2014. If there are questions, please contact or call (608) 266-9000.
