BENEFITING: Hathaway-Sycamores Child and Family Services
EVENT DATE: Oct 07, 2015
Hathaway-Sycamores is raising money to send a very special family to Washington D.C. to receive the “Angels in Adoption” award from the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute (CCAI). Macrina and Miguel Gutierrez’ story of becoming a foster/adoptive family of five – literally, overnight is truly inspirational. Valerie and her brother Aiden had endured four foster placements. The youngest, Allison, had been in foster care since she was four months old. Last year the Gutierrezes officially became a family of five. “You can see how happy the kids are,” says Miguel. “They understand that they’ll now be part of our family forever.” Macrina and Miguel Gutierrez will be honored as 2015 "Angels in Adoption" at the Reception and Gala on October 7, 2015. "Angels in Adoption" is an annual CCAI program that enables U.S. Congress members to recognize constituents who have enriched the lives of foster children and orphans. Please make a donation to support our efforts to send this incredible family to Washington D.C. to be officially recognized as the "Angels in Adoption" that they are! Your tax deductible gift will be used to pay for the hotel stay and airfare for the family of five from Los Angeles to Washington D.C. and other travel related expenses.
