Press Release
Washington, D.C.—Congressman Tim Walberg (MI-07) recognized Matt and Sheryl Mohr from Hudson this week as the 2016 Angels in Adoption from Michigan's 7th District. Click here to watch Congressman Walberg's remarks on the House floor honoring the Mohr family.
The Mohrs were nominated for this national award because of their selfless example and commitment to improving the lives of special needs and foster children in Lenawee County. In the past six years, the Mohrs have opened up their home to 26 foster children. In addition to their five biological children, they have also adopted five children and are in the process of adopting two more—for a total of 12 children. To support other foster and adoptive parents in the area, Sheryl currently serves as President of the Lenawee County Foster and Adoptive Parent Association.
"What Matt and Sheryl have done for so many children is truly moving. Through their compassion and big hearts, the Mohrs have opened their home and provided these children with a loving, stable support system. The Mohrs exemplify a selflessness that inspires and challenge us all, and it is an honor to recognize such a remarkable couple," said Walberg.
Angels in Adoption is a program of the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute (CCAI) that provides an opportunity for Members of Congress to honor constituents who have enriched the lives of foster children and orphans. The Mohrs were honored at the annual CCAI awards ceremony in Washington, D.C. this week along with other recipients from around the country.
