November 2006Vol. 7, No. 8Angels in Adoption

The Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute (CCAI) honored its 2006 Angels in Adoption at a September 20 gala in Washington, DC. Each year, the nonpartisan organization, which is dedicated to raising awareness about the needs of orphans and children in foster care, recognizes citizens who have made extraordinary contributions to improve the lives of vulnerable children. This year's Angels in Adoption Gala honored people from all 50 States and the District of Columbia. Celebrity honorees included Miami Dolphins quarterback Daunte Culpepper, hip hop legend Darryl "DMC" McDaniels, and Christian recording artist Mark Schultz, who performed at the gala. Also honored was the documentary "Invisible Children," which tells the story of displaced children in Uganda and has led to the establishment of a nonprofit organization to help these children.
