Celine Dion to host CBS’ annual adoption special
November 16, 2013, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — CBS says Celine Dion will host a holiday special spotlighting adoption.

The network says Dion also will perform on the 15th annual “A Home for the Holidays,” along with Ne-Yo, Chris Young and others.

The special will introduce families and the children they adopted from foster care. Among them is a Los Angeles couple inspired to act after seeing last year’s program, and a young man who lived in 11 foster homes before a Washington woman adopted him.

According to the Department of Health & Human Services, there are about 400,000 children in foster care in the U.S.

Presenters of “A Home for the Holidays with Celine Dion” include the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption and the Children’s Action Network.

The hour-long special airs 8 p.m. Eastern on Dec. 18.
