Dickinson Couple Receives Angels in Adoption Award

Posted: Updated:

Around the world, orphaned children are looking for a place to call home. And one Dickinson couple is trying to help any way they can. Courtney and Bobby Williams have been foster parents for seven years. And since last year, they've adopted three children from the Congo and Ethiopia. They also started a ministry at their church to encourage other North Dakota couples to consider being foster or adoptive parents. To celebrate their dedication to helping children, Senator Heitkamp will be giving them the Angels in Adoption award later this month.

"I know in Southwest, in Stark County, we have 15 foster families and over 40 children in their care. In the state, I was made aware that 60 children had to go outside of the state because there are not enough foster parents in North Dakota," says Courtney Williams.

Because of the government shutdown, the Senator has not set an exact date for the award presentation.
