Today, Congressman John Moolenaar honored Jan Lampman, executive director of the Arc of Midland as this year’s recipient of the Angels in Adoption Award for the Fourth District. 

This year marks the 20th year the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute has presented the award as a way to honor Americans from each congressional district who have done outstanding work helping children and adoptive parents. 

As executive director of the Arc of Midland, Lampman has worked with the court system in Midland County to assist children under the care of the court, especially those who have been removed from homes where they were neglected or abused. 

"Jan has done terrific work on behalf of children, both at home, and through her efforts at the Arc. Under her leadership, the Arc is a safe and loving place that meets the needs of the community and helps some of the most vulnerable residents. In her own life, Jan took on the challenge of personally becoming the guardian for an individual with an impairment and in need of extra care as he became a young adult. Her work has made our region a better place,” said Congressman Moolenaar.

“I am deeply honored to receive this award and I am thankful for the great work of my team at the Arc. It is a joy for all of us there to help those in our community who just need a little extra support to flourish and grow into amazing people. I have enjoyed my experience in Washington D.C. and I thank Congressman Moolenaar for his support of pro-adoption policies that help families,” said Lampman.

 Congressman John Moolenaar meets with Jan Lampman, executive director of the Arc of Midland, at his office in Washington D.C. on September 26. Lampman was honored by Moolenaar as this year's Angel in Adoption for the Fourth Congressional District.
