U.S. Sen. Tim Johnson says he is accepting nominations for the Angels in Adoption program.
Angels in Adoption was established in 1999 by the Congressional Coalition of Adoption Institute to raise awareness about the importance of adoption.
Johnson is the grandfather of two adopted children.
The South Dakota Democrat each year recognizes South Dakotans who have made a difference in the lives of children in need of a family.
Nearly 1,500 children are in the foster care system in South Dakota. About 75 children in the state age out of the foster care system each year before they are adopted.
The deadline for nominations is July 11.
