Great Expectations Gala: A Celebration of Adoption
The Impact of Your Gift
All proceeds from the Great Expectations Gala will be equally distributed between NCFA’s three core programs – iChooseAdoption (domestic infant adoption), Families For All (adoption from foster care), and the Global Adoption Project (intercountry adoption).
iChooseAdoption is a public awareness campaign that provides important information about the positive option of adoption to young expectant mothers. The iChooseAdoption public service announcements have been broadcasted more than 23,000 times on television, and Nielson ratings place the PSAs consistently within the top 10% of all national campaigns.
Families For All is a program that provides resources and support for prospective foster and adoptive parents. Currently, NCFA is working with 20 families interested in adopting at least one of the approximately 300 children in Washington, D.C. foster care.
The Global Adoption Project is focused on promoting ethical and transparent domestic and intercountry adoption options, ensuring that prospective adoptive families receive critical education about intercountry adoption, and advocating for enhanced and ongoing post-adoption support services to promote successful outcomes for adopted children.
Based just outside of our nation’s capital in Old Town Alexandria, NCFA has remained an authoritative voice for children, birth parents, and adoptive families for 35 years. Our mission is simple: Meet the diverse needs of children, birth parents, adopted individuals, adoptive families, and all those touched by adoption through global advocacy, education, research, legislative action, and collaboration.
Because of NCFA, more children are adopted out of foster care, women facing unintended pregnancy receive comprehensive information on the positive option of adoption, and intercountry adoption remains a viable, ethical option for building families.â
