ORLANDO, Fla, May 1, 2019 – May is National Foster Care Month, and Transfiguring adoption is taking nominations for The Best Foster Parent: The Hannah Eimer’s Award.  This is an annual award designed to bring awareness to the journey that many foster parents experience with their foster children and to encourage foster families as they strive to help children walk through difficult situations.  

Nominations will be accepted through June 1, 2019, with the finalists being announced on June 4, 2019 via Facebook.  The public will be allowed to vote for the winner from June 4-22, 2019, and the winner will be announced July 1, 2019 via Facebook and the Transfiguring Adoption monthly E- Newsletter.  The winner(s) will receive a special award engraved with the winner(s) name, Transfiguring Adoption T- Shirt, and more!

Why is it also called The Hannah Elmers Award?: Hannah Elmers was a young lady who was passionate about orphans and foster children.  She was a shining example of a person who advocated on behalf of children who needed a home.  Unfortunately, Hannah lost her life at the young age of 17 due to an automobile accident, and because she touched so many lives, Transfiguring Adoption wanted to recognize her legacy with this award.  

About Transfiguring Adoption: Transfiguring Adoption is a 501c3 organization dedicated to helping foster and adoptive families.  They wish to nurture foster and adoptive kids by giving a “hoot” about their caregivers. Their website contains blogs, online tools, book/movie/media/other reviews and numerous online tools designed to help foster and adoptive families work together for the greater good of helping children who are trauma affected and in the foster/adoptive system for the ultimate goal of success for the children in their lives.  The organization also helps foster and adoptive parents by focusing on subject appropriate topics every Monday night for a Caregiver’s check-in via Facebook.

How to nominate a candidate: Go to the Transfiguring Adoption Website at  and follow the instructions.  We believe every foster/adoptive child has a story to be heard, and look forward to your submissions for this award to be given to a member of a very under recognized, but important group in our society.
