A Minot woman has been selected for the Angels in Adoption award.

Sen. John Hoeven says Michelle Tweten Schmidt is being given the national honor recognizing her outstanding commitment to helping children.
Over the past 21 years, Schmidt has opened her home to 14 children of different ages and varying disabilities.

She has also worked with special needs students in Minot Public Schools for the past 22 years.

Schmidt and others will be honored during a congressional gala in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday evening.
