A heart warming story appeared in The Clay Center Dispatch on Oct. 25 about Stuart Griffiths, a foster parent who received the 2007 Angel in Adoption Award presented by the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute for his work helping children in need.
Griffiths, who has fostered 32 children since he was in college, traveled to Washington, DC on Oct. 3 to accept the award, accompanied by Congresswoman Nancy Boyda.
She said the following in a press release, as printed by The Clay Center Dispatch:
"For over a decade now, Stuart has opened his home and his heart to children in need. His efforts and moving and truly inspiring and I'm pleased to have the chance to honor his caring work. Of course, no award can repay the efforts of caring men and women like Stuart, but I hope the recognition helps to express our nation's gratitude for their efforts."
This blog would like to echo the Congresswoman's statement, and congratulate Mr. Griffiths on his award!
