Celebrating 35 Years of Adoption Advocacy

Welcome to National Council For Adoption’s 35th Anniversary Great Expectations Gala!

Sponsorships & tickets are available for a limited time! Click here to purchase.
If you are attending the event, please visit our event information page for details.


It has been seven years since my husband Kevin and I emerged from heartbreak and embarked upon our adoption journey; but it feels like just yesterday that I held first Cole and then Grace two years later in my arms for the first time. Our hearts and lives have been forever changed with the blessing of adoption and so Kevin and I are tremendously honored to support National Council For Adoption and their work to ensure that every child has a loving family home.

Please join us at The Mayflower Renaissance in Washington, DC, on November 5, 2015, for a very special celebration of adoption. You will meet some of the nation’s most influential voices in the fields of adoption and child welfare as we toast to NCFA’s tremendous accomplishments and join together to tackle new obstacles facing children today. I’m especially excited about our honorary co-chairs Bubba and Angie Watson. In this year's keynote address, Angie will share her family's adoption story and explore how adoption can make a huge difference in the life of a child.

Explore the Great Expectations Gala website to learn more about how your sponsorship will help children all around the world achieve their true potential. We believe that by giving adopted children a loving and permanent family, they truly can have great expectations.

I look forward to seeing you on November 5!
