The beginning of this month, CCAI awarded Kristin Chenoweth as a 2010 National Angel in Adoption for her work enriching the lives of children in need of families. Earlier this year, Kristin partnered with the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, and to announce the partnership, Kristin spent time with a group of foster youth and took them to her Broadway theater.
Kristin has also appeared on various news outlets to raise awareness about adoption. This summer she told FOX News, “I have been blessed with great parents, and they gave me such a great life.” Ultimately, it is only through raising public awareness about the need for adoption and joys of adoption that children will finally have their dream of a family realized.
People Magazine recently included a story about her on their celebrity blog. When People asked her if she would take in a foster child herself, Kristin shared, “I could easily be that person.”
Her work as a national adoption advocate continues as she prepares for the launch of a shoe she designed for shoedazzle.com. The shoe will be available next month during National Adoption Month, and proceeds will go to benefit children and youth in foster care waiting to be adopted.
