Leaders come together for the sake of orphans

Last week, CCAI hosted a reception to highlight the need for the world’s orphans to find forever families and to encourage leaders and advocates to continue their work on these issues.  This reception took place the evening before the National Prayer Breakfast and was attended by federal policymakers, business executives, and world leaders.  Sen. Mary Landrieu and Sen. James Inhofe, the Co-chairs of the Congressional Coalition on Adoption, spoke on behalf of Congress’ adoption caucus highlighting the need for legislation to be created that will promote the well-being of children in need of families.

Sen. Landrieu reminded us all that these orphans do not have people to speak on their behalf, rather, it is our duty to speak out for these children in need:

Sen. Inhofe shared how his adoptive granddaughter from Ethiopia has enlightened his work on adoption policy:
