CCAI’s Angels in Adoption® Program consists of ten events spanning three days of events in Washington, D.C. where individual advocates, families and organizations who have made an extraordinary contribution in the lives of children through adoption or foster care are celebrated by Members of Congress. Our 2018 Angels in Adoption® Honorees joined over 2,600 alum of the program when they traveled to Washington two weeks ago.

Check out some of the highlights from the 20th Annual Angels in Adoption® Program!
