"The Giving Star"
"Gia Tutalo-Mote has opened the hearts of millions of Floridians with her smile on television. Her warming persona comes across in her NBC 6 Forever Family television segments dedicated to foster children and those "aging out" of foster care. She brings attention to the issues that surround foster care in a unique way, and also produces several other Forever Family segments on TV across Florida and North Carolina. Since she founded Forever Family in 2002, Tutalo-Mote has garnered more than 20 million dollars in free media airtime for her cause, and has also raised nearly a million dollars in cash and in-kind services for medically needy children and those leaving foster care without families. She also mentors these teens that transition to new homes, with the care and warmth that the mother of two children has always nourished in her lifetime. She is powerful for giving so much back. Her numerous awards include the Congressional Angel in Adoption Award, and the Health and Human Service's Adoption Excellence Award, both presented in Washington, DC for her outstanding advocacy." - Art Bodega, Spring 2014
