NEW YORK, Dec. 14 (UPI) -- CBS, along with the Children's Action Network and The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, is airing "The 8th Annual A Home For The Holidays With Rod Stewart."

This year's show is to be broadcast Dec. 22 on CBS, with the hopes of results as good as last year, CBS reported. Last year, the "Children Waiting" segment on the special found homes for 12 children from ages 4-15.

The television special shows potential families tells stories of families who have enriched their lives through the adoption of foster children in hope the tales will inspire additional adoptions.
