Angels in Adoption™ Gala

On Wednesday, September 12, the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute (CCAI) will host its signature public awareness program, Angels in Adoption™. This initiative provides a unique opportunity for over 140 Members of the United States Congress to honor their constituents who have enriched the lives of children without families. These heroes hail from all 50 states and the District of Columbia and represent the wide spectrum of individuals involved in the adoption and foster care process.

CCAI will also honor a select number of National Angels in Adoption™. These are individuals whose contributions in the area of adoption or foster care have had a national impact. This year CCAI will honor Emmy Award-winning actress, Katherine Heigl, and her husband, singer-songwriter Josh Kelley, who are the proud parents of two adoptive children. CCAI will also recognize Grammy Award-winning R&B singer-songwriter Ne-Yo who founded the Compound Foundation, a non-profit organization committed to supporting youth in foster care.
