Angels in Adoption™ Awards
This year's Angels in Adoption™ Gala, held September 13 in Washington, DC, honored more than 190 adoptive parents, adoption advocates, and other "angels" from all 50 States and at the national level who made significant contributions to the lives of children through adoption and foster care. The Angels in Adoption™ Awards Gala is the signature event of the Congressional Coalition for Adoption Institute (CCAI), a nonpartisan organization dedicated to raising awareness about foster children in this country and orphans around the world.
This year's gala hosted over 900 guests. National awardees included actress Victoria Rowell, recording artists Jars of Clay, and the children's show Sesame Workshop. Jars of Clay also provided this year's entertainment, and President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush served as Honorary Co-Chairs of the gala.
