Arkansas Family Nominated by Boozman Selected as National Angels in Adoption Honoree

Written by Press Release

October 22, 2021

WASHINGTON––Dave and Jenny Marrs have been named National Angels in Adoption honorees by the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute (CCAI). The Bentonville couple were nominated by U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) for their advocacy of adoption and other critical services for children in Arkansas and around the world. 

“The Marrs family is an amazing example of Arkansans putting love into action. Inspired by their faith, Dave and Jenny have a strong commitment and passion for orphan care, family preservation and adoption. They opened their hearts to adoption and have been powerful advocates for children and families around the world. Their devotion to uplifting kids in need and championing of such a worth-while cause is something all Arkansans can be proud of,” Boozman said.

Jenny and Dave are featured on the fan-favorite HGTV show, “Fixer to Fabulous,” where they help bring old houses back to life. 

“The main reason that we said ‘yes’ to this HGTV journey of ours is for us to have a platform to share about adoption and orphan care, family preservation, the things that we’re really passionate about and so honestly receiving this award is truly such a huge honor,” Jenny Marrs said during the virtual event. “This is really amazing because this is our heart and what is really important to us.”  

Boozman recognized the family in the Congressional Record and introduced the Bentonville residents at a the CCAI virtual gala on Thursday. 

CCAI coordinates the Angels in Adoption program and raises awareness about the tens of thousands of orphans and foster children in the United States, and the millions of orphans around the world in need of permanent homes.  

Boozman annually nominates an Arkansan or Arkansas organization making extraordinary contributions on behalf of children in need of safe and loving homes as an Angel in Adoption.
