Remember when we told you about the Gibson family from Chelsea? It was only a few days ago, so hopefully you haven’t forgotten. Anyway, everyone rallied together and raised enough money to send Kati and Daniel to Washington, D.C. in September to receive the Angels in Adoption award. Below is a video from the Gibson family to say THANK YOU!
From Kati Gibson:
I just KNOW you’re dying for a cutie pie-low quality video of our little family saying THANK YOU for the amazing help YOU all gave toward Daniel and I getting to Washington, D.C., right?!
The quality is good on a computer- just not a phone. I have no idea why.
Regardless, we are SO thankful and humbled by your love and sacrifice. Have no idea what we’re talking about? You can read the story here: http://moreclaremore.com/…/local-family-wins-huge-national…/
With full love,
“The Angels in Adoption® Program is a unique annual opportunity in the nation’s Capital to shine a well-deserved spotlight on the power of adoption and the unspoken heroes who have made the dream of a family a reality for children. Since the program’s inception, over 2,500 Angels have come to Washington to share their firsthand adoption experiences with Members of Congress, highlighting its joys, as well as the barriers encountered in the process,” said Becky Weichhand, Executive Director at CCAI. “Members of Congress are then able to use their new experiential understanding of these issues to create policy improvements that better support these children and the families that open their hearts and homes to them.”
In addition to the more than 150 Angels from around the country, National Angels in Adoption® honorees will be recognized at the gala for their dedication and commitment nationally and internationally to child welfare on a grand scale. This year’s National Angels in Adoption® honoree is the Minnesota Vikings. Former National Angels include Korie and Willie Robertson, Shonda Rhimes, Deborra-Lee Furness Jackman, First Lady Laura Bush, Patti LaBelle, Jane Seymour, Muhammad Ali, the late Dave Thomas, Steven Curtis Chapman, Bruce Willis, Alonzo Mourning, Rhea Perlman and Kristin Chenoweth.
