Eight days ago she [Michaela Sims] received the “Angels in Adoption” award from the Washington, D.C.-based Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute, a nonprofit and nonpartisan organization advocating on behalf of millions of children around the world living without permanent families.

When Sims received her “Angel” award Oct. 8 on the recommendation of U.S. Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., it recognized more than her adoption of two boys. It recognized her work on Capitol Hill as a lobbyist for adoption issues.

“Whether at work or home, Michaela’s heart for children creates stability and opportunities that a child would otherwise never gain, and that has made her an angel to hundreds of children around the world,” Warner said in a statement. “I am pleased to recognize her dedication to improving the lives of countless children.”
