Joy. Hope. Peace. Family.

Happy Holidays from your friends at CCAI!

Dear Friends:

Meet one of CCAI’s Angels in Adoption™, the Merkouris Family. Until earlier this month, U.S. immigration law prevented their two older children from being adopted with the rest of their seven siblings. Recognizing this law as a barrier preventing these children from finding a permanent, loving family, Congress amended this law and now thousands of older children can find homes through adoption.  This is just one of the many examples of CCAI’s work. Every day we are working to identify the legal and policy barriers that prevent children from realizing their basic right to family and ways that federal policymakers might eliminate these barriers.

Sadly, there are still laws and policies that stand between a waiting child and a loving home.  With your generous support, CCAI can bring joy, hope and peace into the lives of orphans and foster children around the world. As the year draws to a close, please consider becoming a monthly or quarterly CCAI partner, or help to fulfill CCAI’s mission by sending in a year-end gift.

Thank you for your past, present and future involvement, without which CCAI would not exist.  Our friends, volunteers, and donors allow us to provide the necessary programs that bring about actual change in the lives of orphans and foster children around the globe. We are so thankful for you. Have a wonderful holiday!

Warm wishes,


Kathleen Strottman

Executive Director
