Our Master of Ceremonies is Mike Dunston, co-anchor of WEWS NewsChannel5’s Good Morning Cleveland and producer and host of the monthly adoption segment on NewsChannel5 at 5pm called ”A Child Is Waiting."

We will also recognize the outstanding work of our adoption staff members for helping 120 children achieve permanency through adoption in Cuyahoga County and for helping 138 children get placed within their future adoptive families in the last twelve months.
