WENATCHEE — A former city police officer turned adoption aide has earned national plaudits for his work placing 49 children with new families.

Mike Magnotti, 60, of Wenatchee is among more than 140 such aides nationwide who’ll be recognized next month as “Angels in Adoption,” after he was nominated for the honor last month by U.S. Rep. Dave Reichert. Magnotti will travel to Washington, D.C., for an awards ceremony and gala dinner Oct. 8 and 9.
