Congrational Coalition on Adoption Institute- Angels in Adoption

From U.S. Senator Tim Scott’s website:

Charleston, SC—U.S. Senator Tim Scott will honor South Carolina native Dan Cruver as a 2014 Angel in Adoption at the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institutes’s 2014 Ceremony for the tremendous work he has done in helping to mobilize churches for the care of vulnerable and orphaned children.

Dan Cruver, who lives with his wife Melissa and three children (two of whom are adopted) in Travelers Rest, SC, has worked tirelessly to help people open their hearts and homes to children in need.  Cruver is the founder and director of Together for Adoption (T4A), which provides teaching, training, and other resources to local churches as well as globally through national and international conferences.   T4A works to equip individuals, churches, and organizations theologically with the proper foundation and motivation of caring for orphaned and vulnerable children in our communities.

The Angels in Adoption program, through the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute, provides a way for members of Congress to honor and thank those in their communities that work hard every day to help this very vulnerable population of young people.

About Angels in Adoption from the Congressional Coalition of Adoption’ (CCIA) website:

The Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute’s (CCAI) Angels in Adoption™ Program honors individuals, couples, and organizations that have made extraordinary contributions on behalf of children in need of families.

As the name implies, these are individuals whose contributions in the fields of adoption or foster care have had a national impact. Past recipients of this award include Korie and Willie Robertson, Katherine Heigl and Josh Kelley, Ne-Yo, PEOPLE Magazine, Nia Vardalos, Scott Fujita, Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy, First Lady Laura Bush, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Kristin Chenoweth, Rhea Perlman, Deborra-lee Furness, Bruce Willis, Al Roker, Muhammad Ali, Patti LaBelle, Jane Seymour, Henry Winkler, and CBS Studios.

In addition to giving Members of Congress a firsthand look at the foster care and adoption related work taking place throughout the country, the Angels in Adoption™ program seeks to draw media attention to raise public awareness about the positive difference adoption makes in the life of a child. Last year’s event alone resulted in 140 human interest stories being published in newspapers throughout the nation. These stories serve as inspiration for others to step forward to consider fostering or adopting. The Angels in Adoption™ travel to Washington D.C. to participate in three days of events all designed to train them in using their personal experience to affect change on behalf of children in need of homes and to celebrate their hard work and dedication to the issue.
