Angels in Adoption Awards
On Thursday, September 24, 2002, the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute (CCAI) held its annual Angels in Adoption Award Celebration. Each year, CCAI invites Members of Congress to nominate individuals in their States who have made a difference in the lives of children and families for a Congressional Angels in Adoption Award.
For this year's event, 140 Members of Congress participated. More than 199 individuals and organizations (including Jane Morgan, Adoption Specialist at the Children's Bureau) received Angel awards. The Hallmark Channel, Antwone Fisher (author and screenwriter), and Hans van Loon (Secretary General of the Hague conference on Private International Law) received National Angel in Adoption Awards. In addition, Dave Thomas was honored, posthumously, for his work in the adoption field.
