November 14, 2018

MADISON -- Deborah and Carl Brehm of Oconomowoc were among the five adoptive families honored by the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families Monday with the 2018 Governor’s Outstanding Adoptive Parent Award.

The awards were presented during a celebration at the state Capitol as part of Wisconsin’s monthlong recognition of National Adoption Month. The awards recognize Wisconsin families who have opened their hearts to provide safe and loving homes to children in need of a permanent home.

According to a media release, the Brehms “were recognized for the love and compassion that extends beyond their immediate family, which can be seen in the strong relationships they have built with their children’s biological parents. The Brehms have adopted six children through public and international adoption.”
