What is Angels in Adoption™ ?
The Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute's (CCAI) Angels in Adoption™ program provides a way for Members of Congress and CCAI to honor an individual, couple or organization from their state or district that has made a difference in the lives of children in need of a family to call their own. Past honorees include foster parents, adoptive parents, social workers, adoption advocates, or foster care organizations.
Since 1999, almost 2000 individuals, families and organizations through CCAI’s Angels in Adoption™.
Every fall, these Angels come from all over the country to visit the nation’s capital and their Member of Congress, learn about their advocacy capabilities, and share their experiences with adoption. The program culminates with a gala on October 9th at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, DC where CCAI honors those who have raised awareness about foster care and adoption on a national or global level.
