TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- Lori Hutchison received the media award from the Topeka Center for Peace and Justice.
Hutchinson has spent the last 17 years working with our photographer Rick Felsburg making Wednesday’s Child, a segment here on WIBW-TV in partnership with Adopt Kansas Kids.
Hutchinson highlights kids in need of a forever home in hopes of finding the perfect adoptive parents.
"Wednesday’s Child is such a labor of love,” Hutchinson said. “We're so appreciative of this award and of this recognition, but really it's to recognize all of the hundreds of kids in Kansas who are still waiting for adoptive families."
"That's all we ever wanted we just want every child to have a forever home,” Felsburg said. “Anything we can do and everything we can do just to make that happen."
Several other people and organizations were also awarded including JUMP, New Mt. Zion and Curtis Pitts who was given the Lifetime Achievement Award.
