Stefani Ellison Receives "Angels In Adoption" Award

Anyone adopting a special needs child from China has Stefani Ellison to thank. After all, she started the program.

Cedar Resident Receives National Recognition For Adoption
Cedar City resident Stefani Ellison has helped children all over the world to find good homes, and she doesn’t intend to quit. Because of her work in saving children in China, Ellison recently received the “Angels In Adoption” award in Washington D.C. from the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute.

This award is given every year to individuals who have changed the lives of children and families for good through adoption. Senators are invited to recognize these people and this year Sen. Hatch nominated Ellison.

Ellison works for Children’s House International, an international adoption agency that helps children from all over the world find homes in the United States.

“In 2002, the China Central Adoption Authority in Beijing, China, created an expedited program for identifying and placing children with special medical needs,” wrote Marji Hanson, an adoptive parent who was blessed with two children through Ellison’s efforts, in a letter to Senator Hatch.
